Chris Lynn is adamant the risk of becoming a Twenty20 specialist is outweighed by the reward and expects it will "be the norm in 10 years".
Lynn will press his claims for an Australian recall when the Prime Minister's XI meet Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 at Manuka Oval on Thursday night.
He joins a host high-profile Twenty20 specialists in the side with captain Dan Christian, Fawad Ahmed, Chris Green and Ben Cutting all focusing on the short format.
They are in the minority today but Lynn believes this crop is among a group of trailblazers who will lay the platform for a huge change in the cricket landscape.
"I actually think it will be the norm in 10 years. A lot of guys do it once they wind down from international cricket," Lynn said.
"It's the pathway I have taken, I haven't played a hell of a lot of international cricket but I'm just really enjoying the Twenty20 circuit. I think it will be the norm in 10 years.
"It's something that has been open to the West Indians over the past few years, and I think in Australia you're actually going to see kids [go that way], especially if they want to keep the numbers up.
"Everything is all Big Bash-related these days for young kids with the Twenty20 Blast.
"It's exciting. The numbers women are getting now are unbelievable, they started their campaign last weekend, and the crowds and talent coming through have been exceptional. Twenty20 is the way forward now.
"I've really enjoyed it. I made that decision 18 months to two years ago and I'm going to own that decision, I'm absolutely loving it.
"It is easier on my body, and in saying that, my body is feeling really good at the moment.
"I've taken a little bit of a risk with tournaments being cancelled, as my last two tournaments have been cancelled in the Euro [Twenty20 Slam] and Afghanistan Premier League over in Dubai.
"I've taken a bit of a risk there, but it might be a bit of a blessing bringing me home and getting me fit and strong again to set myself up for the next 12 to 18 months."
Lynn is refusing to give up hope of fighting his way back into the Australian side for next year's Twenty20 World Cup on home soil having been overlooked for the national side's looming series.
The batsman reignited the debate about selectors not communicating with players after finding out he had been left out of the squad online.
Cricket Australia's policy states players who were in the most recent squad for a format are contacted by selectors if they are dropped.
Now he joins a host of players who have become staples on the Twenty20 circuit determined to put their name up in lights against an international team.
"Dan Christian, Fawad Ahmed, Chris Green, guys that have dominated franchise cricket around the world. It's pretty exciting that we've all come together," Lynn said.
"I guess that's why you don't see much sledging these days as well, because one week you're on the same team and the next week you're on the other. It's all good fun.
"These guys definitely deserve their opportunity to push their case and really stamp their authority and show Cricket Australia they're still good enough to play at higher levels."
