Durham wicketkeeper Phil Mustard has expressed hope that he will earn a contract for the forthcoming Twenty20 Big Bash League in Australia.
The competition is made up of eight teams, who are allowed two overseas players in their 18-man squads, while a further two may be used if they are unavailable.
Mustard has spent the last two winters playing for the Barisal Burners in the Bangladesh Premier League.
"Quite a few English lads have played in it these last few years so hopefully someone looks at my CV and decides it's good enough," he told BBC Newcastle.
The competition begins on December 20.
