Jake Fraser-McGurk Opens Up On T20 World Cup Snub

He is the hottest batter in the world right now, but that wasn’t enough for Aussie young gun Jake Fraser-McGurk to be selected in Australia’s Men’s T20 World Cup squad.

Fraser-McGurk was overlooked by Australia selectors for the 15-player group, but the 22-year-old explains on the Willow Talk Cricket Podcast the snub did not bother him “a hell of a lot.”


Willow Talk brings you the latest cricket news, expert opinions and fascinating interviews with cricket’s biggest names from all over the world.

Regular co-hosts Adam Peacock and former men’s Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin get stuck into the hot topics in the cricket world, while current Australia women’s captain Alyssa Healy adds her two cents when she’s not bludgeoning bowling attacks.

Former guests include Matthew Hayden, Mitch Starc, Nathan Lyon, Alex Carey, Maitlan Brown, Chris Rogers, Aaron Finch and Willow Talk regular Dan Christian.

Episodes drop twice a week – on Tuesdays and Thursday – while the team drops special episodes during big tournaments and series, like World Cups, Ashes series and Test matches of the home summer.
