'Failed debutant' Quiney's Test career all but over

Sydney, Sun, 25 Nov 2012 ANI

Sydney, Nov. 25 (ANI): Australian cricketer Rob Quiney's Test career could be nearing an end following his lack-luster performance in ongoing Test series against the Proteas.

Quiney came to Adelaide hoping to repeat the pair of centuries he scored there for Victoria last summer, but instead, he leaves with a pair of a different kind, which will make it simple for the selectors to replace him with Shane Watson, presuming the all-rounder is declared fit, for the third and final Test in Perth.

"It's all good saying you played a Test match but I said from the start I wanted to contribute. I'm batting at three and I've got a job to do," the Sydney Morning herald quoted Quiney, as saying.

"If I do it, happy days, it means I'm getting runs and the team's getting runs. If I don't, it's my own fault and I've got to hold myself accountable for that position," he added.

According to the paper, adding to Quiney's loosening grip on his position is the form of Phillip Hughes, who on Saturday scored a century for South Australia, though the selectors may want to see more of him before they pitch him back into the Test cauldron.

Quiney is also joined along with Ponting, who gave a flash of his best, a glorious back-foot cover drive off Imran Tahir, as Australia tried to build a match-winning lead, but hopes of renewing his Adelaide love affair evaporated when the ex-captain knocked a ball onto his stumps from Dale Steyn, adding 16 to his series scores of 0 and 4, the paper said.

Quiney and Ponting have both missed out on a pitch that has proved bountiful for other batsmen, but the selectors are unlikely to make wholesale changes to the top order before the series is over, the paper added. (ANI)
