Skill level too is of utmost importance – Herschelle Gibbs
The right-handed batsman quoted the ten-over game doesn’t purely rely on the power hitting. Instead, he feels the game has certain plans, which need to apply perfectly to get the things right.
Further, he also spoke on the taste of subcontinent fans in the shorter version of the game. Gibbs went on to add saying the experience of Brendon McCullum will help the team to perform better under pressure.
“It’s not just about teeing off from ball one. There is a lot of, as I say, a method in the madness. It is about the preparation, having the right mindset and obviously, the skill level to is of utmost importance. We understand fans from the subcontinent love fours and sixes being hit. This format is right up their alley,” Gibbs said in an exclusive interview with Gulf News.
”We have a very good experienced captain in Brendon McCullum which, obviously helps in a pressure situation. It should be controlled aggression. It is about executing well. You know it is all technical and not just trying to hit the ball as high as you can. Frankly, you don’t have to hit the ball very hard,” he added to his lines.
Well, as Gibbs said, the game of cricket is not about the power hitting. It is all about the planning and executing the things precisely under pressure. Hopefully, the stint with the Rajput team goes well for the stalwart personality.
