Matthew Wade Early life

Wade played one List A game for the Tasmania Tigers in the 2006–07 Ford Ranger One Day Cup season, his only game for Tasmania in any form of the game in his first spell with the state team. His chances of being selected as wicketkeeper in his home state were slim due to the presence of Tim Paine, who at the time was seen as the likely successor to Brad Haddin as wicketkeeper in the Australian national team. Rather than try to become a specialist batsman, Wade moved to Victoria in the 2007/08 season, and within two years had established himself as the state’s first-choice wicketkeeper ahead of incumbent Adam Crosthwaite.

Here is all about Matthew Wade’s International Career.

Following his success in domestic limited overs cricket, Wade was called up to the Australian squad for the first time in October 2011, for a Twenty20 International against South Africa. In February 2012, he made his international breakthrough as a T20I player against India in Sydney, opening the batting and scoring 72 runs from 43 balls to win the Man of the Match award.

Following that T20I series, Wade was called up to the Australian One Day International team for the 2011-12 Commonwealth Bank Series. He won the Man of the Match award on his debut, scoring 67 runs off 69 balls against India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.[20] During the series, he cemented his place as Australia’s first choice in limited-overs wicketkeeper and usually opened the batting.

Wade was part of the Australian squad for the 2011–12 tour of the West Indies as a limited overs wicketkeeper. However, after Test goalkeeper Brad Haddin returned home before Test matches because his daughter was ill, Wade was selected to replace him. He made his Test debut on 7 April against the West Indies in Barbados and scored his first Test century (106) in the third Test at Roseau. Wade was then selected ahead of Haddin for Australia’s subsequent Test series against South Africa in November 2012, taking his place until the end of the 2012–13 season, which spanned a home series against Sri Lanka and a tour. for India. He scored his second Test century in the third Test against Sri Lanka in Sydney.

However, beginning in the 2013 Ashes series, Wade lost his tryout spot to Brad Haddin. He retained his position as ODI wicketkeeper for a period of time, but was ultimately left out of the Australian 2015 Cricket World Cup squad for Haddin. However, after Brad Haddin’s retirement at the end of 2014–15, Wade was called up to the squad for the ODI and T20I series against England in 2015; but he lost the trial grounds keeping position to Peter Nevill. It wasn’t until November 2016, three and a half years after their previous Test match, that Wade returned to the Test squad, remembered earlier than a struggling Nevill, for the third Test against South Africa and the subsequent series at home against Pakistan.

On 16 July 2020, Wade was named in a preliminary 26-man squad of players to begin training ahead of a potential tour to England following the COVID-19 pandemic. On 14 August 2020, Cricket Australia confirmed that the matches would take place, with Wade included in the tour. On 6 December 2020, Wade captained Australia for the first time, leading the team in a T20I match against India at the SCG after Aaron Finch was ruled out with injury.
