Mitchell Swepson aims to adapt quickly and do well in Sri Lanka
Aussie leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson aims to adapt quickly in Sri Lanka!
Mitchell Swepson, the leggie who can be the next big thing in Australian cricket failed to cash on the opportunity when received. He was given the baggy green in the 2nd test against Pakistan but the 28-year-old could bag only two wickets in the entire match. After being on the fringes for five long years, Swepson was expected to blow hot in a spin friendly track but it was cold, if not very cold. Against Sri Lanka in the upcoming test series, Swepson aims to learn from the mistakes he made in Pakistan and do well in the spin friendly track at Galle.
“One thing I learned from Pakistan is you can have your assumptions about what conditions are going to be like, but ultimately when you hit the ground you have to be able to adapt”, Swepson told on Friday. He continued by saying, “I knew it was going to be tough, hard, grinding cricket, but I think I was still surprised at how tough it really was … “I think if I’d have adapted a bit quicker, it might have been a different story”.
Talking about the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, the leggie said, “So my prep going into Sri Lanka is, yes, we’ve got our assumptions that it’s probably going to spin, but it’s going to be important to be able to adapt on the run and work out what pace and shape to bowl with so I hit the ground running”.
Australia is scheduled to challenge Sri Lanka in a full-fledged series in the months of June and July. However, the players have reported to have raised concerns regarding the dire situation at Lanka. The board has expressed their desire to go forward as they have already committed but don’t be surprised if the series gets called off.
