Peter Nevill's shock Test admission

New South Wales Wicket keeper Peter Nevill has made a shock admission, saying he doesn’t deserve to be playing for Australia.

After playing in the first two Tests against South Africa this summer, Nevill was dropped for the dead rubber third match in favour of Matthew Wade.

Nevill, who scored a total of 92 runs – including an unbeaten 60 – across four innings, was demoted back to Shield cricket, with selectors preferring the big-hitting Wade down the order.

It was a decision many saw coming after Australia went behind 0-2 in the series, and Nevill says he has no complaints.

The gloveman also had a sly dig at Glenn Maxwell, who believes Wade – batting above him in the Victorian line-up – kept him from being selected to play South Africa.
