Summary

  • Justin Langer remembers the moment Usman Khawaja outlined his desperation to play one-day cricket for Australia again.
  • He wanted to know where he was at with white-ball cricket,” Langer recalled after Khawaja’s match-winning century in the Delhi decider.
  • Khawaja shed eight kilograms last winter and was recalled to the one-day squad in January, ending two years in 50-over exile.
  • The left-hander has now seemingly cemented his spot in Australia’s World Cup squad, producing scores of 50, 38, 104, 91 and 100 against India’s star-studded attack in the 3-2 series win.
  • Provided Khawaja maintains form during the five-match series against Pakistan starting on March 22, the only question is where he will bat at the World Cup.
