After bans on Steve Smith and David Warner, Khawaja has made a strong case for World Cup selection. Fans have bought their Cricket World Cup Tickets and looking forward to Australia to perform well in the tournament.
Khawaja is in his best physical shape. He is controlled against pace and spin alike. He has been scoring runs for fun in India: 38, 50, 104, 91, 100. His total of 383 runs in five innings at an average of 76.60 is his best-ever in an ODI series.
No ODI hundreds antecedent to this tour to shrugging off nearly three in three innings, Khawaja has struck such rich from that Shaun Marsh, Australia’s best ODI batsman in the past year, can’t find a place in the eleven.
It has been some repudiation for Khawaja, and you knew it meant so much to him when he emotionally celebrated his hundred that set the scene for Australia sewing up their ODI series win in India in ten years. Khawaja raised his helmet, pumped his flat animatedly, concede the cheering from the dressing room and hugged Peter Handscomb, who has also raised his ODI game to a new plan on this tour.
When the wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav fired his stock ball on off – or just a shade outside – Khawaja learned back, allowed the ball to turn, and deftly guided it through extra cover with soft hands.
“Look, one day at a time. I am not looking too far ahead. Nobody knows what the next day might bring”
In UAE, after bedding in, Khawaja got on top of the spinners with a variety of sweeps and regular advances down the pitch. He has followed a similar format in India and it was on bright display when the series was on the line in Delhi.
“Jadeja’s bowling to Finch was beauty, it clasped and turned, “Khawaja said at the post-match press conference. “It was the games when the spinners come into the game, you have to have enough areas to score. We’ve to respect the good balls too.
