Bairstow’s stunning ODI debut prompts Kieswetter to work on his game
London: England wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter has admitted that fellow gloveman Jonny Bairstow’s performance in the fifth and final ODI against India last month has prompted him to work on his game.
Bairstow’s unbeaten 41, which came in just 21 deliveries and included three giant sixes, in his debut innings helped England set up a six-wicket victory and a 3-0 series win.
The 21-year-old’s performance had sent waves of excitement throughout the England camp and drew praise from across the cricket world.
“There will always be work and the type of role I have to play will come off sometimes – and sometimes it won’t,” a leading daily quoted Kieswetter, as saying.
“It shows we have a lot of bottle running through the spine of the team,” he added.
Kieswetter will however go into England’s tour of India for the five-match ODI series and two Twenty20s this month as the country’s first choice wicketkeeper-batsman.
