Bangalore: Canada's John Davison will bow out of international cricket on Wednesday against the country he dearly wanted to play for.

Davison, who lit up the 2003 World Cup with a 67-ball century, was born in Canada but has spent most of his life in Australia. He gets his first chance to play his home country in his final international match.

The 40-year-old allrounder said it was "pretty fitting" that his last game should be against the country he was "never quite good enough to get a game for."

Davison has spent time working with spinners Jason Krejza and Steve Smith.

As a coach at the Australian academy, Davison has spent time working with spinners Jason Krejza and Steve Smith and so will get a unique chance to see if his words have had any effect when he faces them on Wednesday.
