You are just trying to make hundreds and help your team win, Weatherald told the NT News. It is in the back of your mind if you do well you could go up for selection but if you get ahead of yourself everything goes backwards. You have to stay calm and when you get your opportunity be ready for it. Opener Matt Renshaw, allrounder Hilton Cartwright and keeper-batsman Alex Carey all used winters with the National Performance Squad in Brisbane to achieve international selection within 12 months. NPS coach Chris Rogers was chosen to iron out the only fixable flaw in Weatherald fine-tuning forward defence and overt aggression to make Frequent flyer Weatheralds ton of history the 23-year old a consistent first-class force. I have been working on it all pre-season. To get the opportunity to prove it, walk the walk, not talk the talk and make some runs I am pretty happy with it, said Weatherald, benefiting from a compact approach with minimal head movement. Selectors love big game players with natural confidence and Weatherald fits the bill. A brilliant 115 in Adelaide Strikers grand final win against Hobart Hurricanes, 116 in last years JLT Cup elimination final against Victoria and dual half-centuries in the 2015-16 Sheffield Shield decider against the Bushrangers marked Weatheralds ticker. When you grow up you want to be the one to win games for your team, said Weatherald, who made 765 Sheffield runs at 38.2 last season including two centuries. You need to have one match-winner a game and Thursday night was my job. A couple of early wickets meant it fell to me to do it. Weatherald paid tribute to Jake and Darren Lehmann for support roles in a decisive knock at the WACA. Jake Lehmann, stand-in skipper with Travis Head on Test duty, posted a career-high 87 in the third highest, one-day third-wicket partnership of 171 for South Australia with Weatherald. Former Australian coach Darren Lehmanns advice on mental relaxation and saving your best for the crease proved pivotal. Lehmo took a lot of pressure off me with his highest score in one-day cricket. He was calm like his old man, played every shot, he has found his niche at No.4, said Weatherald, who dispatched his 10th boundary off Sean Abbott to reach a glorious ton in Perth.
