CA deny Bailey has retired from T20s
Former Australia T20 captain George Bailey has not retired from the format, as had been reported earlier this week when he was not picked for the match against England in Cardiff, and has World Twenty20 ambitions.
Australian media speculated that Bailey, who was not considered for the T20 match, was looking to retire from the shortest format in order to focus on getting his Test place back, but this has been refuted.
CA said in a statement: "George has spoken to the selectors and team management and stressed his desire to feature in the Twenty20 international squad in the future and to be part of the team that travels to the ICC World Twenty20 in India next year.
"The selectors and team management are fully supportive of that and now it’s up to George to put the performances on the board to give himself the best chance of selection."
Bailey will be part of the ODI side though as they take on England in five one-dayers over the next two weeks, and he will bat in the middle order in place of the retired Michael Clarke.
