If Australian selectors are genuine with their age-old plea for batsmen to 'talk to us in runs', then Matthew Wade is presenting a deafening case for an Ashes call-up.
And the 31-year-old said he is happy to put his hand up as either a specialist batsman or potential stand-in for fellow Tasmanian wicket-keeper Tim Paine.
Wade's innings of 114 against the England Lions at Canterbury on Sunday was his third century in five matches (following 42, 41, 155 and 117) for an Australia XI and took his tour average to 93.80.

It followed scores of 34, 65, 38, 134, 86, 1 and 77 in his last seven Sheffield Shield innings after a Big Bash League campaign when he was the tournament's second highest run-scorer behind fellow Hurricanes opener D'Arcy Short.
The eye-catching figures earned Wade an invite to join the Australian squad at the World Cup and he remains part of a 25-man party from which a team will be picked for the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston on August 1.
The straight-talking gloveman, who played 22 Tests between 2012 and '17, believes he is making a strong case for a recall.
"It was exciting to go up and be around the team for the semi-final," he said.
"I've come away from my young family to come here and try and push for selection for World Cup and Ashes and I suppose it was a little reward for the sacrifices I've made and runs I've put on the board over the last 12 months.
"It's always nice to score runs. But as I said at the start of the tour, we're just trying to go out there and play as a collective, play as a team and try and win as many games as we can. Individual success will come along and people have got their success by doing that."
Asked whether he saw himself as a specialist batsman of reserve keeper, Wade said: "I think I can do both roles.
"I've played 22 Test matches and they've all been as wicket-keeper so I think if I managed to get a spot on the team in that dual role and anything happens to Tim I feel like I can stand in and catch them if they need me to and vice versa I'm playing more as a batter at the moment as well.
"Coming here I thought my opportunity would be in that dual role if they wanted to take some extra bowlers or all-rounders.
"If they are looking to take 16 they're probably looking at someone to bat and keep and I feel I can do that and fingers crossed that I get a tap on the shoulder.
"If not, I'm comfortable with where my game is at and what I have done on this tour."
After the Lions match, the Australia XI squad will travel to Southampton to meet up with seven players from the World Cup squad plus three from county cricket before selectors finalise the first Test line-up.
