“Plan was to come out hard, wicket was doing a bit” – Stuart Binny following his game-changing performance
Looking back on his performance after that match, Stuart Binny shared that the strategy was to be aggressive and deliver the ball accurately.
“Plan was to come out hard, wicket was doing a bit, we just wanted to put pressure on them by not bowling boundary balls. We started believing as soon as we got a couple of wickets. At the break, we just spoke of bowling in good areas and coming hard at them,” Binny stated.
“I’d love to bowl on this wicket every day. I think you wait for an opportunity when you’re on top and you try to take it as far as you can. I got that opportunity today and made the most of it,” he added.
