Australia vs India: I'd like death bowling to be my role, says Scott Boland
Boland started well with the ball as he conceding mere 12 runs in his opening spell of four overs.
New Delhi: Young Australian pacer Scott Boland, who has made his debut in the first ODI against India on Tuesday at WACA, has shown interest in bowling at the most difficult phase of the match – death overs.
Boland started off well with the ball in the series opener by conceding mere 12 runs in his opening spell of four overs. However, he leaked too many runs in the next six and ended up with figures of 10-0-74-0.
Yet, the confident 26-year-old said he will get better with every passing match and even urged the Australian camp to give him another crack in the death-bowling role.
"... when you're bowling to someone who's on 150 (Rohit Sharma), they're going to hit them for six. I hit a few (yorkers) where he only got a one or a dot. But the margin for error is tiny," said the Victorian to PTI.
"I'd like that (death bowling) to be my role. I know it's quite tough, and some days things are going to go against you. But when you do have the good days, they're really rewarding."
Second match of the series is to be played at Brisbane on January 15.
