The Australian Wicket Keeper Batsman, Alex Carey said, he is hoping to get his T20I position back in Australia vs India T20I series. Alex Carey told, he has worked on his technical part under Ricky Pointing back in IPL 2020.
The Wicket Keeper Batsman had the fortune to work under the former World Cup-winning skipper of Australia, Ricky Pointing in Delhi Capitals camp.
“It was my first IPL season and to have Ricky as head coach for Delhi Capitals and few more familiar faces in the camp made it a very enjoyable season of IPL,” Alex Carey to reporters during Video Conferencing.
The Australian batsman was dropped from the playing eleven in the last T20I against England in September, due to inconsistent form. In IPL he just played three games scoring 32 runs.
Alex Carey scored his maiden ODI century against England, clinching an ODI win over England. But in the preceding T20I series, he was dropped from the playing eleven making the way for Mathew Wade. In the two T20I against England, the wicketkeeper-batsman scored just 3 runs.
Carey did not have a memorable T20I season against South Africa too, scoring 7, 14, and 27 in three T20Is.
Now, India and Australia will play three T20Is after the ODIs starting on 27th November. Alex Carey hoping to make his comeback after working on his techniques and skills.
Alex Carey on his Comeback:
“I was lucky enough to work with him in the World Cup last year and formed a good relationship. He was an amazing player and is an amazing coach, and he picks up on little things really quickly,” Carey to the reporters.
“We have a lot to talk about, however, I didn’t play many games but that gave me more time to train myself and correct my technical part with Ricky. I had worked a lot on my skills in IPL which will help me grow and develop and have a successful summer.”
If it’s a lower-order role or back up the top of the order, I’m doing everything I can to get back into that team and it’s something I want to do.
“Since then I felt like I finished off that UK tour really strongly and took a lot out of the IPL working with (Ponting).”
“Coming up against England recently and India soon, we’re playing the best in the world so it’s a great indicator of where our T20 cricket is at.”
