Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 : This Australian bowler feels ‘bowling on Indian Track is challenging’

Lance Morris

Young Australian fast bowler Lance Morris believes that bowling on Indian surfaces during the Border-Gavaskar series will be “challenging,” but will also be a “great learning opportunity.” Australia under Pat Cummins will kick off their Test and ODI tour of India with the first game on February 9 in Nagpur. Morris, 24, is one of the 18-person Test squad and may play in the four-match series after only losing out on a spot in Australia’s third and final Test against South Africa in Sydney.

To be honest, the response (to bowling pace in India) hasn’t been terrific,” Morris said on SEN Radio on Tuesday.

There isn’t much to look forward to; I won’t see the keeper grab the ball with his fingers up in the air as it zipped between his hands to him. The recipient of this year’s “Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year Award” commented, “It sounds like it’s going to be a little challenging, but it’ll be thrilling nonetheless.

According to Morris, his own expectations for the trip were limited to learning to bowl on subcontinental surfaces while travelling with an experienced group.

”We now have a tremendously skilled group with some really great guys in the squad. Having some training sessions to learn from them has been beneficial. “I don’t want to have high standards for myself. Since I have never toured with cricket before, this will be my first international experience, I just want to use it as a learning opportunity. It will be a great opportunity for me to learn.”
