TASMANIAN Tigers allrounder James Faulkner would be over the moon if he was selected for the Ashes Tour in July.

Named Man of the Match yesterday in Tasmania's Sheffield Shield victory over Queensland -- the side that trounced Tasmania at the Gabba in last year's final -- 22-year-old Faulkner was happy to be celebrating with his teammates today and not thinking about Test selection.

"That's ages away but if I got a spot I'd be rapt," Faulkner said.

"Any opportunity to represent your country is an honour.

"I was lucky enough to do that this summer in one-day cricket and T20, and it was a big thrill.

"I've got a lot of cricket to play before that and we'll see what happens."

Faulkner and Tigers teammate Ricky Ponting, together with Tasmania's Australian Test wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, will be on their way to India this weekend to play in the IPL.

That could not have been further from Faulkner's mind today as the Tigers adopted gangster's theme -- apart from skipper George Bailey, who looked like David Attenborough.

The team partied at their Blundstone Arena headquarters until the early hours of this morning.

After a few hours' sleep, they met for breakfast at Hobart's Customs House Hotel and had lunch at the Telegraph.
