Maxwell intense on being a containing bowler

Maxwell has begun to take on a more protuberant role with the ball recently, as showed during Aussies’ ODI series in India and in the UAE against Pakistan, where he bowled 64 overs across nine innings. He is now set to be a key supporting option at the CWC19.

Spinner Adam Zampa will be Aussies’s first excellent expert rotator, and with Maxwell in the form of his life with the bat, he is likely to be Aussies’s go to the subordinate spinner, with his off-spin, which could leave no room for Nathan Lyon.

“Try not to get hit for six most of the time,” Maxwell said teasingly on his role with the ball. “For me, I suppose, a lot of the time that I bowl, I just try to limit the border balls. As long as I’m doing that, if they hit some good shots off my bowling, I’m not too deterred. If I’m limiting the boundary balls and giving myself the best accidental to squeeze a few dot balls, bowl a couple of tight overs, it might create a bit of pressure at the other end.”

I have prospects on myself to finish off matches and be the guy who stands up there at the end of the match and making sure that we win the match. Glenn Maxwell

Next, to the India and UAE tours, Maxwell went over to England in its place of IPL and used the time to ready himself for the CWC and the Ashes series that follows it. His county spell included six Lists A match with Lancashire at the One-Day Cup, in which he took eight wickets while maintaining an economy rate of 5.62: pretty handy numbers for a part-time spinner.

“I think it’s vital for me to just bowl in a partnership with someone,” he said. “That’s perhaps the clearness I have in my role, and it’s something I did a bit in Dubai [against Pakistan] and India, and started to get a few more overs, a bit more consistency… To have that continue into my time at Lancashire, where I got plenty of time at the bowling crease, you get that rhythm, you get that feel of the ball coming out consistently. You need that as a part-time bowler, to have that consistency of time at the crease and get a few of the cobwebs out, I suppose.”

Maxwell has also added layers to his batting, presentation an element of calculation that was before missing. In 13 ODIs this year, Maxwell has made 458 runs, averaging 41.63 – markedly higher than his career average of 33.33 – and striking at 126.51. He indicated that his role at the CWC would require him to show more such flexibility.

“I supposing my role in the side is to adapt to whatever start we have, whether it be we get off to a flyer or we’ve lost a few early wickets. It’s just to adapt to whatever I get thrown into,” he said.

I just want to have an impact on games in a really positive way and be able to control the back end.

“I have expectations on myself to finish off games and be the guy who’s standing there at the end of the game and making sure that we win the game.”

And Eoin Morgan, Virat Kohli, and the ten tournament skippers can’t wait to get started, with a series of warm-up matches scheduled around the country in the next week.

England skipper Morgan said: “I don’t think anyone is head and shoulders above anyone else.

“These are the ten best teams in the world, it will be extraordinarily competitive and some quality cricket will be played so we are really looking forward to it. Every captain sitting here would lose their left leg to play in a World Cup final at the home of cricket.”

It’s something every one of us would have dreamed of as a kid.

“We are as best prepared as we can be. We just want to play that first game now.”

India skipper Virat Kohli added: “England in their conditions is the most strong side in this tournament.

“But all the teams so strong and well balanced and the fact we have to play everyone once, I think this will be the most competitive World Cup that anyone will have seen.”

Once it gets underway particularly against England and further on for the Ashes. The crowd will play a part but that is expected everywhere in the world.

The way we use our resources will be vital, but every team has X-factor bowlers that will have a big say in the successes of the side.

“I think the bowlers will win it, the teams still in it towards the end of the tournament will be the teams that have done really well with the ball.”

Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed – who led Pakistan when they won the ICC Champions Trophy in England in 2017 – is feeling confident.

“All the teams are really balanced. I think people are going to watch some great cricket,” he said.

Since winning the World Cup in 1992, making the final in 1999 here in England and the Champions Trophy in 2017, we go well in England so we are confident we will do well and challenge.

New Zealand was runners up four years ago and skipper Kane Williamson hopes his Black Caps side can go one better.

He said: “There are a few guys in the squad from the last World Cup which is great.”

But four years in between means there are a lot of new players.

“There has been of talk about rankings, favorites, underdogs but what stands out is how balanced it is. Which means anything can happen on the day which is so exciting.”

West Indies skipper Jason Holder added: It’s a very exciting format. In the past, you could play five or six games, and that could be it.

To play every side is great for us. We worked hard with the qualifiers to get here, which means it is the top ten in the world, we want to play them all and give ourselves a shot.

“The team that wins will definitely deserve it.”

Sri Lanka’s new captain Dimuth Karunaratne said: We have great experience in England, we came here early to get used to the conditions and we are in good shape, hoping to do our best.

“It is not going to be easy though. We are confident and taking it each game one by one.”

Afghanistan skipper Gulbadin Naib added: “We are excited to be here, in front of the cricket world and to play the best teams.

To present Afghanistan to the world is great and we are looking forward to it.

“There will be a huge audience at home in all the different provinces. Cricket is not just a sport now, in Afghanistan it has become something else.”

And finally Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza is confident his side can spring a surprise.

We have got a great bunch of boys, a good mix of seniors and juniors coming on.

Cricket is a game that anyone on their day can beat anybody. If we start well we can hang in there.

“We are confident that we can go well, but a lot depends on the start.”

Hashim Amla speaks to the media ahead of CWC19

Hashim Amla boasts more than 18,000 international runs but He is hungry to show he still has what it takes at his third ICC Cricket World Cup. Cricket followers are waiting for thrilling performances of their favorite players in this year’s tournament. You can book Cricket World Cup Final tickets Online.

Hashim Amla speaks to the media ahead of CWC19

The South African batsman has been a backbone of the Proteas’ set-up for more than a decade, with 55 international centuries to his name, but a loss of form put his place in Ottis Gibson’s squad in danger on the eve of the tournament.

The right-hander missed the one-day series against Sri Lanka earlier this year, with Aiden Markram promoted to open the batting alongside vice-captain Quinton de Kock in a series the Proteas won 3-2.

Amla also missed out on the IPL and that break has refocused his mind and motivated him to sharpen his game in a bid to prove a point.

“Things happen that you don’t anticipate and I did not anticipate how things have gone recently,” he said.

“But I am a firm believer that when something happens, there is some good in it. I have had time away and now I am really looking back to wearing the green and gold again.”

I am hungrier than ever before, there is no doubt about that. I have been blessed to have this shirt for a while but the time off has made me want to come back stronger.

“This is my third [ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup] so I know what it is all about. I have a strong record in England and I have always enjoyed coming here.”

At 36, this is likely to be Amla’s last chance of lifting the ICC Cricket World Cup. His previous two appearances have ended in heartbreak at the hand of New Zealand – who beat them in the quarter-finals in 2011 and semi-finals four years later.

However, the attention on South Africa is less intense this year – with England the current top-ranked side.

The two teams will do battle in the opening game at The Oval and Amla believes their underdog status will suit South Africa.

“It is the best first game we could have asked for. We have played England recently and had some success against them, I have done well against them too,” he said.

This year, you don’t see the same big names and that is why the focus is not on us but that has some good in it.

There has not been much chat about us winning in comparison to the past but I don’t think that played a part in how we performed.

“At the end of the day, we always gave our best and played to win. The fact there has not been a lot of chat at this World Cup means there is less expectation but in the team, we think we can do well.”

Resurgent Wahab determined to redeem himself at the CWC19

After earning an astonishing call-up to Pakistan’s team for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, fast bowler Wahab Riaz wants to make his chance count. Cricket followers are waiting for thrilling performances of their favorite players in this year’s tournament. You can book Cricket World Cup Final tickets Online.

Resurgent Wahab determined to redeem himself at the CWC19
Resurgent Wahab determined to redeem himself at the CWC19

Wahab hasn’t played one-day cricket for Pakistan since the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. The left-arm even had his work ethic questioned by the head coach Mickey Arthur, who had criticized Wahab for having lost his match-winning skills.

But after reviving his form in the Pakistan Cup, the country’s domestic 50-over competition, where he was named Bowler of the Series for his season-topping 10 wickets in five matches, Wahab supposed that he was always fully prepared for the CWC, though his chances of making the team had appeared to be slim.

“I had been having dreams that I am meeting Mickey Arthur and Sarfraz Ahmad. Sometimes they would reject me and sometimes they would pick me.” Wahab Riaz

“I even had dreams I was meeting Mickey Arthur and Sarfaraz Ahmad, and sometimes they would pick me, and reject me at other times,” he said. “Around ten days ago, I had a dream that Inzi Bhai [Inzamam-ul-Haq, the chief selector] gave me a call and told me that I have been selected and this is my last chance. It was exactly how it happened when I was called and told about the decision. It is nothing less than make or break for a player who gets an opportunity to play in the CWC.”

Wahab’s selection was also partially a result of Pakistan’s bowlers performing poorly in the series against England. In three of the four completed games, Pakistan allowed England to make in excess of 350, and on one other occasion, failed to defend a score of 340. It prompted the Inzamam-ul-Haq-led selection committee to turn to the left arm’s experience – he also had a stint with Derbyshire in the T20 Blast.

“I have worked hard and matured as a bowler in the last two years,” Wahab said. “I have learned a lot and the results are visible to everyone. You can’t judge anyone on the basis of one match. I am a bowler and there are chances that I may concede 60, 70 or 80 runs, and it has happened in the past as well. But that doesn’t mean that I lost my skills and ability.”

Wahab was Pakistan’s most successful bowler at the previous edition of the CWC, in 2015, with 16 wickets from seven matches. He produced a match-winning performance – 54*, followed by a spell of 4/45 – in a must-win game against Zimbabwe. In the quarterfinals against Australia, he delivered one of the great World Cup spells, dismissing David Warner and Michael Clarke, and then stunning Shane Watson with a series of short balls.

Reminiscing that spell, Wahab said: “Since the pitches are placid and conditions are batting-conducive, it becomes necessary to have an aggressive approach, or else the batsmen will dominate you. If a batsman demeans me, I will do what I did that day.”

An expert at the reverse swing, Wahab reckoned the skill would be key in English conditions.

 “Variations and reverse swing are key in the death overs. With the conditions dry and wickets hard in England, there will be a reverse swing and the team that does it better will have the advantage. I have expertise in reverse swing, so I will try to restrict the flow of runs in the final few overs.”

Faster, Stronger, and fitter, Shami hopes for another good CWC

The India fast bowler, Mohammed Shami, is confident of once again excelling at the ICC Cricket World Cup, when the 2019 edition of the tournament gets underway on 30 May.

Faster, Stronger, and fitter, Shami hopes for another good CWC

Shami was one of the driving forces behind India’s excellent run to the semi-final of the previous edition, in 2015, in Australia and New Zealand. Following that tournament, he played only five matches, until December 2018. He has since made a strong comeback, with 19 wickets in 11 matches, at an average of 26.42, and is raring to exploit the overcast and windy conditions in England, which he thinks are largely suited to his bowling.

Flat pitches in England have become a batsman’s paradise in limited-overs cricket. But a bowler has to be smart enough to change his line and length rendering to the conditions. I have the pace and swing to outsmart them. I am not overly worried about it. In fact, I believe the conditions are suited for my bowling. The late movement outside the off-stump will definitely come in handy. Mohammed Shami

“I worked on my game during the time I was away from the field and didn’t lose focus of my aim – to get back into the national reckoning,” he told IANS. “I have returned stronger, faster and fitter.”

Shami, who is a master of swing – both conservative and reverse – sounded self-assured about executing his skills at the CWC.

“My yorkers are still as potent as they used to be, and I will be using a lot of them during the World Cup,” he said. “I back myself to bowl fast, incoming deliveries, and it wouldn’t be easy for batsmen to hit me.”

Speaking about the current Indian pace battery. Which also boasts of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami regarded the ability to bowl skillfully at a high pace as a major component of its success.

“The best chunk is that along with diversity, we have an attack that can bowl fast. Having skills and pace together is the USP of this side, as that somewhere increases the confidence of the attack. To be honest, it is like a dream that has come true, and I feel very proud that today people talk about our bowling unit as one of the best – a thing that wasn’t heard much, but is now called our strength.”

Shami acknowledged the healthy competition within the bowling department, adding that the current lot doesn’t shy away from taking each other’s advice to enhance their skills further.

 “We are a happy bowling bunch. We deliberate a lot among ourselves,” he said. “We are not wary of taking each other’s information, that’s the kind of freedom we enjoy. I tell Bumrah about a sure bowling aspect and he does the same with me. Our knowledge makes us a very strong bowling unit. We know our roles going into the CWC and will feat the conditions accordingly.”

Alex Carey Said Australia’s high pressure experience will come in handy

Several of the Australian Cricket players and support staff have important CWC knowledge. Ricky Ponting, their associate coach, won the tournament thrice (in 1999, 2003 and 2007), fielding coach Brad Haddin was part of the 2015 title-winning side, and the likes of Aaron Finch, the skipper, David Warner, Steve Smith,  Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell have all played in the previous editions.

“We have got a lot of knowledge,” Carey told reporters in London. “Brad Haddin played in the last CWC, we have got Ricky Ponting coming in, and we have got a number of players who played in that last CWC.”

“We have got lots of knowledge around the group of guys to access. When we get into it, that’s when the high-pressure skill comes into it.”

The 27-year-old also said Aussies would be focused on their own match plans rather than form them rendering to the opposition. Aussies have won eight straight away ODI, and Carey credited that form to this method.

“We have got a certain game style which has been successful in the last eight games, against quality opposition,” he said.

For us, it is playing to our strengths. Every team in the CWC has got its strengths. We are not too much about hostility’s game style. That’s where we get unfocused from what we are really good at.

“Thus for us, it’s building on our success in the last few months. David Warner and Steve Smith come back in. Aaron Finch is in really good form. Our quick’s are in good form as well. We got a lot of exciting players.”

Aussies will play warm-up games against Sri Lanka and England before their initial match against Afghanistan on 1 June, and Carey is self-assured they will begin the tournament on a positive note.

“We will start planning. We have warm-up games as well, which will be part of our build-up,” said Carey. “A lot of us have played against a number of their Afghanistan’s players. The first game is where we want to hit our straps. They will be keen to start the tournament well, and so are we.”

Both Amir and Wahab had been omitted from the preliminary squad that had been named last month. The duo has come in place of fellow left-arm pacer Junaid Khan and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf.

In the other major change, middle-order batsman Asif Ali was named in place of Abid Ali. And leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who suffered a viral infection and was pulled from the series against England, has recovered and retained his place in the final 15.

The real challenge will be to choose between Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan; the latter’s concern is his fitness, Amir — on the other hand — has not fired ever since the Champions Trophy two years ago. Junaid’s advantage lies in his Lancashire county cricket experience in England.

Earlier, Pakistan cricket chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq informed that Amir will be part of England T20I and ODIs to be played in the lead up to the World Cup from May 5 to May 19. Amir will also serve as a cover for the World Cup squad and, if required, can be drafted into the side until 23 May without International Cricket Council’s permission.

“For the T20I and ODI against England, we have added Asif Ali and Mohammad Amir as additional players. Asif is probably the best power-hitter in Pakistan, while Amir has the experience and a good record in England. These two will provide cover to the World Cup squad and can be drafted into the side by 23 May, if required,” he said.

Squad: Sarfaraz Ahmed (capt, wk), Asif Ali, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnanin, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz

Du Plessis wants South Africa to let go of fear of failure in CWC19

Skipper du Plessis supposed that South Africa hasn’t played their best cricket in earlier editions of the ICC Cricket World Cup because they put themselves under unnecessary pressure.

Du Plessis wants South Africa to let go of fear of failure in CWC19

South Africa; has a reputation of floundering in big tournaments, which the skipper put down to the players stressing over doing something special.

“In earlier CWC, we wanted to do Superman things. We thought we had to be more special, we had to do somewhat more than we usually do, and we did not do what was good enough before,” he said journalists on the eve of the team’s departure for England. “We haven’t always got that right in the past, to play our best cricket at the CWC, because we put so much pressure on ourselves. We want to just focus on enjoying our cricket.”

Du Plessis said the key would be for the players to overcome the fear of failure and hoped that he could draw on his own experiences to help them cope with pressure.

“We started a year or two ago with a real focus on mental preparation and, as a captain, I probably speak more about that than previous captains,” he said. “But I really believe it’s an area we can get better in. I’ve been there and I know the pressures, I understand how to deal with them”.

Our success in England over the next couple of months depends on how well we release that aspect of our play – we need that for the team to be at our best. Each player needs to find out his own strengths.

“There’s a reason why we want the guys to play freely – because we don’t want them to have a fear of failure, which is what the CWC is for some of them.”

The 34-year-old also wouldn’t commit to Hashim Amla making South Africa’s starting XI and said that selection would come down to the form of the players. Amla’s form has been a matter of concern lately. He also hasn’t played much cricket for South Africa recently, owing to his father’s critical illness.

“In terms of team selection, that’s a call we will make when we get to that first game,” du Plessis said. “We have two warm-up games. Generally, we want to pick on form. If we believe Hash Amla is the guy with the best form for the first game, then he will be picked. But if we feel there are other guys that are more in a form we will pick them.”
