India vs Australia 2014-15 4th Test at Sydney: Ashton Agar surprised to earn Test spot

Shashi / 01 January 2015

Never doubtful of his skill to be in the Test squad but Australian left-arm spinner Ashton Agar was nonetheless amused at being called into the squad for the 4th and final Test match against India starting here on 6th January, 2015.

The 21 years old was added to the Australian team keeping in consideration the turn that the Sydney wicket traditionally offers for tweakers. Agar has cherished a cool start in the Big Bash League (BBL), and have taken three wickets at an average of 17.33 for the Perth Scorchers.

Ashton Agar, who made a memorable Test debut last year scoring 98 runs while batting at number 11 has turned almost as he has turned cricket balls. When he was 19 he earned a place in the team of Western Australia, the Perth Scorchers, and also the national team, having shockingly been modified from an internship on the 2013 tour of India to a more crucial part in Michael Clarke’s team. Ashton Agar’s rapid growth continued when he was added in Australia’s XI in 2013 for the 1st Ashes Test at Trent Bridge.

Ashton told that it was totally out of the blue but it is certainly very exciting and he is very happy as he got the call. He also added that he was just over the moon. He thinks he was a little bit shocked at first but after that it was just felt like a dream come true again for him. He has never doubted himself about getting back in the Test side.

Agar however said he is not certain if he would be picked in the final playing Eleven against India. mOreover, he also calimd that he felt at this stage in the season he is going pretty well so he is really comfortable with being selected at the moment. He wants to practice more and more to get the chance in the team.
