We adapted well to the pace of wicket: Agar
Picking up a match-winning fifer in Australia A’s third straight win in the tri-series, left-arm spinner Ashton Agar on Monday said the visiting bowlers kept their plans simple against the India A batsmen and adapted well to the pace of the wicket. Australia A outplayed India A by 3 wickets to book their final berth. After restricting India A to 258 for nine, the Usman Khawaja-led side achieved their target with nine balls to spare. Man of the Match Agar (5-39) was happy that the bowlers executed their plans well.
“<g data-gr-id="28">May be</g> our plans are <g data-gr-id="24">little</g> bit more simple. Maybe the nets helped us. I think we adapted well to the pace of the wicket and put the ball on the spot where it was most likely to get a positive outcome. I think that really helped us in saying that our spinners bowled well,” Agar told reporters after the game. “I think we got some really good death bowlers and we have got good depth in our squad. But cricket is a funny game. So I cannot say that they are good death bowlers because they could really turn around one day and bowl extremely well in the death,” he added.
