James Tredwell is crossing his fingers he will get an opportunity to take to the pitch when England take on Australia in the fourth one-day international.
The Kent bowler was called into the squad as a replacement for Graeme Swann, who is being rested for the final two games of the series with one eye on the Test series against South Africa.
I'm delighted to be called into the squad. It's nice to know you're still part of the selectors' thoughts.James Tredwell
The 30-year-old hasn't played for England for over a year and hopes he will get the chance to show what he can do at Chester-le-Street on Saturday. England, who are 2-0 up in the series, are 1.80 to win the match while Australia can be backed at 2.00.
However, he may be thwarted by the weather, which prevented him from making an appearance against the West Indies last month, with heavy rain falling across the country on Friday.
"I was involved at Headingley as well, which was washed out - with a long drive," said Tredwell .
"So I'm just hoping that doesn't happen again, and we get a full game again.
"I'm delighted to be called into the squad. It's nice to know you're still part of the selectors' thoughts."
