But he was dropped prematurely.
I thought he was dropped in favour of Damien Martyn against the Windies in the first test in the 1992/93 summer. He never played another test again, which is a shame.
Still he played one dayers up until the 1994 tour of South Africa, where upon he retired from international cricket after the one dayers there.
