Australia batsman Usman Khawaja is hoping to score a century in the 4th Test match of the Ashes 2021-22 series against England at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Usman Khawaja is most likely to replace Travis Head in the middle order in the 4th Test against England as the latter was tested positive for COVID-19 and was ruled out of the 4th Test. Khawaja will be playing for Australia after a very long time as he last played for Australia in the 2019 Ashes series.

Speaking to cricket.com.au, Khawaja said that he hasn’t played for a month but it shouldn’t take him a lot of time to get back the rhythm.

It’s always nicer when you’re coming off games – I haven’t played for a month now – but it shouldn’t take too long hopefully if I play and get out there, bat for half an hour and get into it, I should find that sync again,” he said.

Khawaja added that he understands that even if he has the chance to play the SCG Test it’ll only be for one game.

It’s one of those things where even if I do play, it’ll only be for one game … I understand that situation … hopefully I can go out there and score a hundred and do well for the team in the absence of Heady,” he added.

The 35-year-old batter said that he is working really hard and is hoping to do his best for Australia whenever he plays.

There’s a lot of cricket still to come up. I’m just putting my head down, making sure I’m working really hard and doing the best I can for Australia whenever I get the opportunity,” Khawaja further added.

Usman Khawaja further said that he is looking forward to the upcoming subcontinent games of Australia.

I’ll potentially have one game for Australia here, but even if that doesn’t happen, I know there’s still … a lot of cricket in the subcontinent which I feel I’m very suited to, and which I’m looking forward to hopefully being a part of moving forward.

“I’m in the best cricket conditioning, and I don’t get as sore as I used to. I love it, still enjoying it, very competitive,” he maintained.
