Aussies training on exact skills to counter England’s flat pitches

The recent ODI series between ENG and PAK designated yet again that pitches in England and Wales, the venue for the World Cup, could offer plenty of runs. There were five scores of over 350 in eight completed innings, with 297 being the lowest.

With that in mind, defending champions Australia, under the supervision of bowling coach Adam Griffith, have been practicing hard at their training camp in Southampton to master their death-bowling skills.

Bowlers are largely focused on being spot-on with their Yorkers and on countering the batsmen’s trigger movement. Mitchell Starc, the left-arm pacer, revealed there was a bit of competition, with bowlers awarded points for hitting different areas.

“It was a bit of target bowling for the group. We’ve got certain cones put up for wide Yorkers either side of the stumps or trying to hit that zone,” Starc told cricket.com.au. “It’s something we’re working hard on because death bowling is something where you can win or lose a game or defend a total.”

Starc, who lit up the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 with his fast, swinging yorkers, has not been a regular in Australia’s limited-overs sides in recent times as the selectors have looked to manage his workload. Having played only four limited-overs internationals since February 2018, he rediscovered his pace and accuracy during Australia’s warm-up matches against New Zealand in Brisbane earlier this month.

The 29-year-old came in for criticism for his Test bowling in the Australian home summer, but he is confident that a changed mental approach will help him regain his swing and best form during the mega-event.

 “Having three months to chat about things and have a little bit of a different approach to how I think about it, and perhaps the change of wording and what my cues are, have really helped me in coming to back to this stage,” he said.

The defending champions will play warm-up matches against England and Sri Lanka before their campaign gets underway against Afghanistan in Bristol on 1 June.

Jimmy Neesham’s new approach has him on track for Cricket World Cup 2019

Jimmy Neesham is taking a diverse approach in his quest for selection as the 2019 edition appears. In 2015, Neesham was a surprise slip from the squad but his treasures look rosier this time, mainly thanks to a transformed mentality. Evoked for last month’s series against Sri Lanka after 18 months away from international cricket, the all-rounder is pushing less burden on himself to perform.

Additionally, he believes his practices from four years ago have him in a much restored place.

“I’ve done it before — it’s a bit like Groundhog Day from four years ago with that World Cup race, and I think having that experience of desperately wanting to make a team for a big tournament and missing out, it puts me in good stead this time around,” said Neesham.

“I’ve probably been putting less pressure on myself to succeed. I remember four years ago, we had a one-day series in the UAE and it felt that every game was make or break as far as the World Cup spot went, and I put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed every innings.

“I know coming into this tournament, it’s about accepting what comes. If the runs and wickets come, they do, if they don’t, so be it.

“I know what not to do and what not to focus on. For me, my attitude for the whole season has been ‘I won’t make it’, so what’s the point of stressing about it? I’m not going to change that mindset, it’s obviously been working so far.”

How we play each game and how we perform against the rest of the world will define how far we go. Yes, we have the ability to win the World Cup hands-down, but abilities don’t win you anything, performances do. Our capabilities include having top ODI bowlers and batsmen in our line-up and personally I’m looking forward to a memorable World Cup 2019,” Malik said.
