Wade eyeing chance to England ODI series


Sydney-Matthew Wade has the chance to cement his place as Australia's long-term wicketkeeper in the ODI series against England starting on Friday, ahead of the Ashes.

Wade's performances in the Caribbean have set up a fascinating 3-way battle with Brad Haddin and Tim Paine.

Haddin has retained his Cricket Australia contract and will be careful for the next Test against South Africa in Brisbane in November.

In the interim, Wade's former mate Paine is on the return trail after having his career stalled by an injured finger.

Paine is still much rated and has been given a chance to impress in Australia A's 4-match tour of England starting next month, the AAP reports.
