Newly recruited batsman Joe Burns feels that it is crucial to concentrate on the current things rather than think about future as he readies himself for the 4th and last Test against India, which is starting from Tuesday rather than thinking about Australia‘s future overseas tours including Ashes.
Joe Burns quoted in a popular website about the tour and he said that it is very thrilling that the tours are coming up for Australia. But as he said, he cannot get diverted by external events in cricket. He just want to give his best for his country in this game and helping the Aussie team to a 3-0 win.
He added that they should focus on their next training session, their next match and make that their most crucial thing. That is one thing he has learned over these years. He also added that we cannot get too far ahead of ourselves. Burns also said that he was not intimidated by his experience of playing a Test match. He felt very cozy in both innings right up until the point he got out.
He just concluded saying that it is a good session just to give himself more time and get himself in before going for a more extensive match. That is likely the huge difference coming from Shield cricket in Test match cricket, he does not really get away with that. It is a little bit surreal, but it does feel like any other match. It is a much known set-up with Darren Lehmann as coach.
He also felt it very familiar. That is how he has got to reach it. He has to put everything else to one side, concentrate on the ball that is coming down and react accordingly. With Australia leading the series 2-0, the fourth and last Test begins on 6th January, 2015.
