Whenever India National Cricket Team travels overseas for a Test series, their biggest villain has always been the tail-enders of the opposition. They have got quite a few bad stories in their kitty while dealing with the tail-enders of the opposition. Meanwhile, the same scenario is being repeated again in the current series, where Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Cummins scoring runs on a consistent basis.
Recently, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli showered words of praise on Australian lower-order batting. He termed them as one of the top 3 sides when it comes to low-order scoring handy runs for the team. Meanwhile, Starc reveals his opinion on their batting.
We really work hard for it – Mitchell Starc
Speaking of the same, the premium fast bowler of Australia Mitchell Starc quoted that they will take a lot of pride in scoring runs for their country. Further, he said that would make the opposition down and tired as well.
He quoted that all of their batsmen wants to put a price on there wicket in order to come good for Australia. Despite scoring runs at the low-order, he doesn’t want any opposition to doing that against them, as it completely changes the positivity in the dugout for the team.
”It’s something that we all work really hard at and we have done for a long time. Those partnerships make India bowl a lot more overs and then the other three of us we just try and hang around a bit and score a few runs and face a few balls,” Mitchell Starc said
“It’s something our tail takes a lot of pride in. And then with the ball, we’re trying to do the exact opposite for them and try to get them out really quickly. We’ve learnt along the way and it’s fantastic the last two weeks how we’ve gelled together again as a group of four,” Starc was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com.
Well, as Mitchell Starc said, Australian lower-order batting section has always delivered the goods for the team over the years. It would be interesting to see how they would approach an upcoming couple of Tests left in the 4-match series.
