Weatherald's exploits saw Weatherald earn a BBL contract with the Adelaide Strikers. Although he has shown glimpses of his potential so far, he hasn't been able to convert his starts into consistent knocks. The flair that he brings to the table makes Jake a tempting option at the top of the order but the Strikers will want more from him than just the cameos. It's early days in Weatherald's career and if he continues in the same vein, he could find a spot soon in Australia's limited-overs squads.
The 2017-18 Sheffield Shield season has seen him improve a lot in red-ball cricket as well - a fact that was showcased by his twin centuries against Western Australia. Even though it came on a good batting strip at the WACA, the hunger shown by Weatherald to improve his game in the longer format augurs well for his future. He is still mainly considered as a limited-overs specialist but considering that he is still very young, it won't be a surprise if he starts churning out runs across all formats.
