Ashes have always been exciting and they are worth to watch. Not only England and Australia but the whole cricket world wait for these matches. Ashes 2019 is also full of passion. We saw some astonishing cricket from both sides. Australia struggles to see to retain in the Ashes was thrilling. Also England player has to struggle a lot in front of the Australian bowlers. Currently in Ashes 2019, the last and final innings of Australia is left which will decide the winner.
England opener Joe Denly shares his experience of the field. He tells that the Australian bowlers are showing excellent bowling attack and he was struggling to score runs. The bowlers don’t easily let you score runs. Jon Denly in Ashes has not built big runs for his countryside. In his last innings in Ashes 2019, he scored 94 runs and build a partnership of 50 runs with Rory Burns.
“Whenever you open the batting, there is an expectation to score runs and do well. It’s been frustrating to get starts and not be able to capitalise. I felt very good today. It’s a very good bowling attack we’re coming up against. This Australian attack is certainly up there and makes you work hard for every run,” International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Denly as saying.
England player says that till now they have good hold in Ashes.
“It would have been nice to get to that milestone today, having worked so hard, but England is in a good position. Hopefully, I have impressed the selectors,” he added.
Joe Denly take it as a privilege to play in Ashes
Jon Denly feels the privilege to be playing for England in Ashes and wants to continue playing for his country.
“Wherever Joe Root asks me to bat, I don’t think I am in a position to demand where I want to bat. To be playing for England is a privilege, certainly at my age. I did not think I will be here a couple of years ago, so to get the opportunity is very special. And if that opportunity to open presents itself again in the future, then I’d be happy to do it,” Denly said.
England scored 329 runs in their last innings and set the target of 399 runs. Wait to find the winner will be over today after Australia’s last Innings. Australia will be ready to fight and name themselves as the winner of Ashes 2019.
