“They’re going to have to play with plans to face all those sorts of bowlers, and really live or die by the sword.”
Former cricketer, Darren Lehmann, has words of advice for the current Australian team on how to tackle the Sri Lankan tweakers on slow home pitches.
“Whatever plan it is, have it, believe it and implement it.”
What he really meant:
“If cricketers are gladiators, then willows are sabres. Wield them like rapiers and scythe through Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath and Suraj Randiv.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Hoist yourselves on your own petards and collapse upon your wickets.”
