Albany Creek’s cricketer is not giving up on his dream of playing in the Ashes despite Australia’s decision to drop him for the Ashes 2017. He remains hopeful that he can produce a resounding second coming.

In one interview, he expresses his perseverance about starting again somewhere. He mulls about going back to the grade cricket for the week. He is also optimistic about his Shield game at the WACA next week. He looks forward to score runs in order to boost his confidence once again.

National Selector Trevor Hohns explains that they dropped Renshaw from the Ashes list because he was out of form. Hohns elaborates that they still regard the Albany Creek cricketer as a strong player. They think that the Ashes Test match was not the best place for Renshaw to get back to form. He adds that national selectors want to see Renshaw return to first-class cricket and bring back the big runs.

There had been talks about Renshaw’s disappointing performance in three Sheffield Shield games in the weeks before the selection. Days prior to the announcement, Mark Waugh was in fact optimistic that Renshaw’s impressive record for Australia would still lead him on his way to the Ashes 2017. The 21-year-old batsman also had the support of his Test Teammates.

The final line-up for the Australian squad for the Ashes 2017 includes Tim Paine who had been absent from test cricket for seven years; Cameron Bancroft, Shaun Marsh, Chadd Sayers, Steve Smith, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood, and Jackson Bird.

Elsewhere, cricket followers have been disappointed with Australia’s decision to drop Renshaw. They have taken their grievances on Twitter.

One Renshaw follower chooses to be sarcastic:

Others disguise their disappointment with humour.

Many are simply blaming the selectors.
