Australian all-rounder Ashleigh Gardner is getting used to the noise generated by the fanatical followers of Indian cricket within the ongoing T20 sequence towards the hosts and feels the loud roars can put further strain on the away group even whether it is doing properly within the center.
Gardner has contributed with each bat and ball to assist Australia take an unassailable 3-1 lead within the 5 match sequence. The closing T20 will probably be performed on Tuesday evening.
“It does take quite a while to get used to,” she informed the ‘100% cricket’ podcast.
“Sometimes you feel like you are under the pump because obviously the crowd isn’t on your side, so they are hitting dots and there’s ones and twos that you actually think are boundaries being hit or they are right on top of the game.
“So we try to take the emotion out of that, knowing that they are going to be supporting the other side and being okay with that. So it’s probably not listening to the crowd too much even though obviously it is very loud.” The Australian can also be excited in regards to the inaugural U-19 World Cup for ladies.
“We were actually talking about that the other day,” she stated of a chat in her group camp in India.
“It was myself and (teammate) Heather Graham, who are at similar ages and we would have loved to have played in an U19 World Cup as we thought we would have been very good.
“But yeah, obviously it’s fantastic for those young players to have something to strive for (now).” The age group occasion will probably be performed in South Africa subsequent month.
