It seems that Australian opener Ed Cowan had been waiting for an opportune moment to hit back at his critics as after his 86-run knock against India in Mohali, he said he did not care about the likes of former captain Ian Chappell questioning his Test credentials.

"I'm going to have to score a hell of a lot of runs before that (being in Chappell's XI) happens. But I doubt that I'll ever see myself in his team," Cowan said.

"One of things with Test cricket is you work out pretty quickly that everyone has got an opinion, everyone is entitled to an opinion. Often it's not the same opinion as what you have," said Cowan, who scored 86 in 238 balls in Australia's first innings score of 408 all out in the ongoing third Test against India in Mohali.
