India vs Australia 2019, ODI Series – Ashish Nehra Has A Suggestion For The Indian Bowlers Against Glenn Maxwell
In the recently concluded T20I series between India and Australia in India, Glenn Maxwell dominated over the Indian bowlers that helped Australia to win the series. The former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra has come up with a suggestion to handle Glenn Maxwell.
In the two-match T20I series, Glenn Maxwell came to bat both times after the quick top-order dismissals. But both times, he played game-changing innings to secure the victory for his team.
Chasing down the 127-run target in the first T20I at Visakhapatnam, Glenn Maxwell came to bat when Australia was on 5/2. The right-handed batsman scored 56 runs off 43 balls (six boundaries and two over-boundaries) on the challenging track, where the shots playing were the very tough job. Australia won that match by three wickets on the final ball of the game.
In the next T20I at Bengaluru, Australia had to chase 191 runs to win that game. Once again, the no.4 batsman Glenn Maxwell came to bat at early when the visiting side was struggling on 22/2. Glenn Maxwell played a marvelous knock in that situation and guided his team to a comfortable victory. This time he remained not out on 113 off 55 balls (seven boundaries and nine over-boundaries). That innings helped Australia to chase the target in 19.4 overs after losing just three wickets. With that victory, Australia won that series by the 2-0 margin.
Apart from winning the Player of the Match award in the Bengaluru T20I, Glenn Maxwell also won the Player of the Series award after finishing the series as the leading run-scorer. The right-handed batsman scored 169 runs in that series with an average of 169.00.
Siddarth Kaul or Jasprit Bumrah should try to bowl back of a length delivery
While the Indian bowlers will have to face same Glenn Maxwell in the upcoming five-match home ODI series, the former Indian left-arm pacer Ashish Nehra has come up with some valuable tips. He feels that the Indian bowlers should try to bowl back of a length to Glenn Maxwell rather than yorker.
Ashish Nehra told CricketNext, “Glenn Maxwell was in full flow. He was unstoppable. Definitely, a guy like Glenn Maxwell will not be as consistent as the team management would like to have him or he himself. Any batsman, who likes to bat at 180 or 200 strike rate can’t be consistent. But, as a bowler, you need to see best chances.
“I already said he is unstoppable. But, still, the ball is wet and bowling yorker is very difficult for him. Someone like S Kaul or Jasprit Bumrah should try to bowl back of a length delivery which would be useful rather than going for yorkers. However, the kind of innings he played, bowlers have very less chance to come back.”
The host side India will play the five-match ODI series against Australia from 2 March to 13 March. After this series, India’s next international assignment will be the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales. India will begin their upcoming World Cup journey on 5 June against South Africa at Southampton.
