Allrounder crushed at being overlooked for India Tests
'Disillusioned' Noffke considers Indian leagues

Noffke toured the West Indies with Australia earlier this year following an outstanding Pura Cup campaign, but rookie Victorian pace bowler Peter Siddle was preferred for the four-Test series which starts on October 9.
"I have told Digger [national selection chairman Andrew Hilditch] that I am totally disillusioned with the way these selections work," Noffke told the Herald Sun. "Digger said they had picked the best squad for Indian conditions, but that explanation didn't leave me feeling any better. I was good enough to be in the West Indies squad and I haven't played cricket since then so how can I get passed over?"
So this what we will see in world wide cricket.

"I am a firm believer in taking wickets and scoring runs to put my name forward and I've done that. This feels like the end of my dreams of playing for Australia," said Noffke. "I have to now start to think about where I am placed and how much money I can earn to look after my family. There is the IPL and the ICL and they are on my mind. Absolutely."
Not selected for national team = Join IPL or ICL
I love Bangladesh cricket and that's why I found
