Alex Carey hopes his stint at Delhi Capitals under coach Ricky Ponting will help him make regular appearances in the Australian T20 setting.
The 29-year-old was the first choice for gloves on the ODI team, but lost his place in the shortest form due to minimal returns in South Africa and England..
After working on some technical aspects of his game with Ponting during IPL, Curry hopes he can cement his case in the shortest format as well.. « . . . Curry said my first chance to be part of the IPL and to have Ricky head coach for Delhi and some other familiar faces in the team made it really fun for two months’.
“I was lucky enough to work with him during the World Cup last year and it formed a good relationship. He was a great player and a great coach, and he picks up the little things very quickly.
« We had a lot to talk about, and even though I didn’t play a lot of games, it gave me plenty of opportunities to train and only work on some small technical parts of my game that I hope will help me develop and have a successful summer. ».
Carrie, originally a first-class bat, played in the middle order to fit the team, with David Warner and Aaron Finch taking the first two places. This helped him become a floater that could bat anywhere according to the position. He opened once and played mid-position in the T20 series against England in September, but only made three games in two matches and lost to the third.. He scored only scores from 27, 14, 7 in the previous series against South Africa.
“I think my numbers in the last few T20s have likely allowed the door to open for Wadey to go. I never like to leave any team, but it allowed me to go and develop.
“If it’s a low-ranking role or I keep a backup from the top of the rankings, I’m doing everything I can to get back into this team and that’s something I want to do,” he said..
He had signed off from the UK Tour with a score of 100 in the ODI Final despite keen to regain his spot soon with next year’s T20 World Cup in mind.
“Ever since then I felt like I finished that tour in the UK hard and got a lot out of IPL’s work with (Ponting).
“I think it’s a great opportunity to constantly work on the best squad. Even though it’s been 12 months, you want to focus on some specific roles and get some shape in that World Cup.
« Against England recently and India soon, we’re playing the best in the world so it’s a great indication of where our T20 cricket is, ».
