Indian bowling Mohamed Siraj said on Tuesday he would try to thwart New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson with points balls, if given the opportunity to play the final of the World Test Championship (WTC), which begins on June 18 in Southampton.
“I will try to bow in a certain place tirelessly. I will focus on bowling points against Kane Williamson, the best batsman in New Zealand, to put pressure on him. This will provoke him to go for shots and there will be a great chance to get him out, “Siraj said the day before the Indian squad left for England.
The right-hand bowling alley, which influenced India’s tour of Australia and played a key role in helping the injured team win the 2-1 Test Series, said it would try to attract batsmen to the forefront in England. as the terrain there is different from that in Australia.
“Australian pitches offer more rebound and pace. I used to have a good length back. But there will be more swings in England. So I will try to get the batsmen to play with their front legs,” Siraj told ABP News.
The 27-year-old bowler from Hyderabad said that New Zealand will adapt to conditions more than India, as they play two test matches against England before the WTC final. The first of the two tests begins in the Lord on Wednesday.
“We are going through quarantine these days before we go to England. After that we didn’t have cricket IPL postponed. But New Zealand will play a test series against England and they got there long before us. Thus, they will not only be among the matches, but will also get more time to adjust to the English conditions. “
The pacer for his right hand added that cricket with the highest flight helped him overcome his nervousness.
“I will not say that these are technical changes. Entirely psychological changes have entered me. I used to be nervous on the field. But I overcame it,” he added.
“I work hard on my gym. I spend time in the gym, I train hard. Being flexible is the key to success every step of the way and I achieved it through training.”
In addition to the WTC final, India will play five test matches against England in August-September during the tour.
