Ian Healy urges Wade to work hard on his wicket keeping
Sydney: Former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy has urged Mathew Wade to work hard on his wicket keeping, adding that he must harness the same powers of concentration in his batting to his work behind the stumps.
Wade scored his second Test century yesterday at the SCG in his first stint at No.6 in the batting order, but Healy remains concerned about his keeping given a number of blown chances in his young nine-Test career, News.com.au reports.
Healy said Wade certainly needs to improve his glove work, and advised the left-handed batsman to work hard certain aspects with repetitions so that it becomes a technique. Healy said Wade is getting surprised too often that the ball is coming to him and that`s not good, and the former Australian glove man added that it is nothing but a concentration thing and a relaxation thing.
Healy said with time Wade can improve if he keeps working hard. Wade (102 not out) has now made two Test centuries in innings where none of his teammates have managed to do the same.
