Initially Matthew Wade was ignored from the Australian roster which made him disappointed. He said, “I was disappointed not to get picked for the T20 Internationals, but that’s the way it goes. I can only really go out there and perform the way that I’m performing, the selectors take care of the other stuff. Every time you don’t get picked for Australia is disappointing.”

However Wade was named in the side after Australian camp got two big injuries. Aaron Finch and Chris Lynn received injuries that let them ruled out from the t20 series. George Bailey is also included in the twenty20 team as he was part of ODI squad.
