"I definitely believe I could (fill Faulkner's void). Bowl through the middle overs and bat down the order," Henriques was quoted as saying by Thursday.

The 28-year-old, however, wished speedy recovery to injured Faulkner saying, "It's never nice to go in on someone else's unfortunate events, I hope James gets up and he's ready to go," he said.

Henriques added that comparing him with Faulkner would be unfair as both are different players.

"But I do think I'm a different player to James as well. Jame's performed extremely well for Australia and I'm yet to do that at ODI level," he added.
