Teams must focus on running to build the T20 World Cup: Dean Jones
NEW DELHI: With the T20 World Cup Almost a year away, each series looks like an accumulation of the tournament. Even a couple of days before the T20I series against Bangladesh, the management of the Indian team has expressed its opinion on trying as many players as possible to find the right combination.
While everyone looks at the skill sets of the players, it is also time to get the strategies taking into account the conditions in Australia. The large open field is one of the big factors that impacts a game. David Warner I recently pointed out the difference between playing IPL and T20 cricket in Australia.
Australia played a lot of short things during the 2015 World Cup. It is very difficult to hook it for six because they are very large grounds. The physical condition is essential. I think Bairstow and Warner - for Hyderabad on IPL - are the best association to run in the T20 cricket. They have the strength to hit four and six but they still run one and two. Bowlers hate him, former Australian hitter Dean Jones told TOI.
"Fortunately, India will be playing Australia in October just before the T20 World Cup . But you need to do a lot of planning. The lengths have to change and the roles need to be given out soon," Jones added.
Jones, who has been part of the Bangladesh Premier League in the past, it also feels Shakib Al Hasan 's absence from cricket will help Bangladesh focus on their combination. "I know the organizational problems with the BPL. At the same time, Shakib will be ready to play the T20 World Cup . He will be available. But now it's the time to see if Mahmudullah You can do the job. You will need good planning by the selectors, he said.
In the 1987 World Cup, Australia qualified as the worst team in the competition. We lost eight games before the World Cup. Days before the tournament, we made the players know what their roles are. That starts now, he said.
