Shane Warne calls for George Bailey inclusion

Shane Warne wants George Bailey to be included in the Australian Test team for The Ashes.

Former Australian spin-bowler Shane Warne has called upon the selectors to include George Bailey for the upcoming Ashes.

Bailey, 31, is the current captain of the one-day international and Twenty20 side, but he is yet to be called-up for Test duty.

However, Warne believes that Bailey's recent form in the limited overs format of the game should see him feature against England during the coming months.

"I put my hand up to say I was wrong about George Bailey and it's fantastic to see the form he's in. He has to be in the top six," Warne told reporters.

Michael Vaughan, who skippered England to Ashes success in 2005, has also recently backed Bailey to be included.
