Renshaw bolstered his chances of selection for the Australian team with an impressive unbeaten century in the recent Sheffield Shield match between Queensland and Victoria at the Junction Oval in Melbourne.
Renshaw, who has been out of favour with selectors since last Australian summer, scored 111 off 205 balls as he batted through Victoria’s innings to help them to a six-wicket victory. His fearlessness and ability to flourish in pressure situations was in full flow as he built a 109-run partnership with Chris Tremain after the Bushrangers had been reduced to 3/44. His disciplined innings and willingness to survive without taking undue risks impressed the capacity crowd, who applauded warmly as he re-entered the pavilion.
This was Renshaw’s second hundred of the season and he appears to be playing with more confidence than ever before. His current form, combined with the Australians’ struggles in prime time engagements during the last year, have made him a viable option for the selectors.
It is expected that Renshaw will soon find himself back in an Australian shirt. He is a talented and experienced batsman and this innings will have done his cause a world of good. Whether the selectors take any notice of his heroics remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain, he’s certainly put himself in the frame for a comeback.
