Team India’s players fixed for ODI World Cup… Rahul Dravid spoke openly on Surya
On this, Rahul said, ‘Obviously Shreyas’ injury is unfortunate. I am not worried about the performance of Surya, who replaced him in the team. He got out on two very good balls. He does not have the experience of ODI cricket like T20. Dravid said, ‘We will not get many matches in home conditions now. By the time the IPL is over, to a large extent, we will be clear about the team and the players. We have narrowed it down to 17-18 players.
Having fun with Stark: Ellis
Young Australian cricketer Nathan Ellis is enjoying bowling with and learning from Mitchell Starc on this tour. He says that Stark’s influence on him is increasing. Ellis said before the third ODI against India, ‘Starcy (Starc) has a lot of influence on me. I have always been inspired by him.
He also gave me the ‘cap’ of Australia. He has been a big part of my journey with the Australian team. I spoke to him before the match and also after the match. He has immense experience. He has seen all the ups and downs. It is fun bowling with him and learning from his experience. Ellis said he believes in planning according to the pitch. He said, ‘I don’t believe in bounce itself. I make my strategy according to the wicket. Tomorrow also I will not go thinking about anything in advance. Here the ball will take spin and the slower ball will prove to be more useful.
