Scared Australian batsman before WTC Final, said – less expected, also told the reason for fear


India-Australia will be the final of the World Test Championship
The great match will be played at the Oval ground in England from June 7

New Delhi. The Australian team will leave for England at the end of this month. The Kangaroos have to face the challenge of Team India in the grand finale. The final of the World Test Championship 2023 between India and Australia will be played at The Oval in London from 7 June. After this the Australian team will face England. The much-awaited five-Test Ashes series between the two countries will begin on June 16.

Australian opener Usman Khawaja has expressed his fear about the pitches there before leaving for England. The left-handed batsman recalled the last Ashes series and said that England is a very difficult place for top order batsmen. Talking to ESPNcricinfo, Usman Khawaja said, I think England is the most difficult place in the world for the top three batsmen to bat. I visited England in the year 2013 and I was very young then. If I can be honest, it was a very rubbish tour. I learned a lot from that tour.

Khawaja said, I played the last series in England in 2019 which was very difficult for the batsmen. Apart from Steve Smith, everyone else was a flop on that entire tour. The Australian opener said, if I have learned anything, it is to work hard. Training hard and going into the England tour with low expectations. You are going to fail as a batsman, but when you score, you try to get as many runs as you can.

KKR’s batsman was surprised on his own innings, the all-rounder did a funny dance, said ‘Pathan’, now…

‘Bowlers make you work hard’
Talking about England’s fast bowlers, Usman Khawaja said, James Anderson and Stuart Broad are very good bowlers. They make you work hard in the beginning. However, when you get to score runs and contribute to a winning team, it’s great. I will try to do the same on England tour. Let us inform that Usman Khawaja had performed well on the last tour of India. He scored a total of 333 runs in seven innings of 4 Test matches. This included a century and two half-centuries. Usman Khawaja scored 180 runs in the first innings of the Ahmedabad Test.
