Australia selector George Bailey while talking about the non-selection of Steve Smith stated that the batter along with some other players was part of a long conversation but they couldn’t make it. He stated: 

“Steve Smith, Matt Short, Jason Behrendorff, Aaron Hardie, Spencer Johnson and Xavier Bartlett were all part of long conversations, along with several others, including Jake Fraser-McGurk who is yet to play T20 International cricket but continues to impress and is developing rapidly. Being constrained to a squad of 15 for World Cups is always a challenge given the different scenarios and options we’d like to cover.”
