With the 2019 World Cup less than eight months away, Corey Anderson has decided to focus on white-ball cricket by choosing not to participate in the first-class format for next season. Anderson has been out of Test cricket since February 2016 and played a first class match in April earlier this year.
Stopping representing Somerset in the T20 Vitality Blast, Anderson will leave with the New Zealand A team for the United Arab Emirates. play against Pakistan A. That will give you the opportunity to directly enter the ODI and T20I squads of New Zealand because the selectors had decided to keep two open positions in each of the limited liability squads to choose players based on their performance in the A series.
"I tried [the World Cup] here four years ago and it was amazing," Anderson told stuff.co.nz . "To try to give me the opportunity to get involved in that again, that's the driving force."
"I really want to be on that side. I want to be there right now. There is still that dream and still that goal. I think it's probably just making sure that I'm doing it the right way too. Try to win [my place] back and win the right to be on the side. The biggest performance you should try and achieve at that level is. "
Anderson played up to 16 T20 games in the Vitality Blast and racked up 514 races, but racked up just one window because he only managed four plays. He was an ODI in the Champions Trophy last year before undergoing back surgery in September 2017. His career has been plagued by multiple back injuries and working several weeks in England gave him a "massive boost".  "It's the first time I've reached the top of my mark and I did not have to worry about whether I was going to be sore or hurt in any other area," he said. "He gave me back a little love. in the game, you tend to lose sometimes when you hurt yourself with injuries. It's nice to feel that I regained my body and I can get stuck in it.
"Although the surgery was 12 months ago, I'm probably cautious about those things, and last week I had my 12-month exam to make sure everything was great and I got the nod to say everything was spotless.
"Having everything back and going in the right direction gives your psyche a huge boost".
