Overlooked for the Sri Lanka Test series, allrounder James Faulkner is back home in Tasmania preparing for a red-ball season that he hopes will act as a stepping stone to again playing the long-form game for Australia.

The 26-year-old, who has just one Test appearance to his name and is best known as a one-day performer, wants to spark interest from selectors which he admits has been tough in recent years as he meets national commitments and struggles to get a run of Sheffield Shield appearances.

"I'm still learning how to get that right balance going between the red ball, the T20, back to one-dayers and travelling and making sure I'm in decent physical nick as well," Faulkner told reporters on Tuesday.
