While reservations surrounded Alex Carey’s inclusion in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 squad, the wicket-keeper batsman emerged as one of the top performers for Australia. Scoring 375 runs across 9 innings at 62.50, Carey portrayed great composure under pressure to rescue Australia from tough situations.
Having former Australian captain Steve Waugh mentoring the team for upcoming Ashes series, the 27-year-old cricketer is focused to bring improvements in his red-ball cricket. Carey believes that the unit is extremely lucky to have someone of Waugh’s caliber working with them for an important series.
The South Australia born opined that patience is key to success in the longest format of the game, and he is looking forward to learning the trade from a special Australian player.
Moreover, reflecting on his comparisons with Mike Hussey, Carey added that he’d be happy even if becomes half as good as Hussey as he has been an incredible player. While the aggressive player portrayed great ability to counter pressure, he hopes to add further skills into his batting arsenal.
