Agar confident ahead of Bangladesh tour

Ashton Agar, a left-arm spinning all-rounder, has confidence in himself as he will be touring Bangladesh for Australia for two Tests in August-September.

Agar has only played two Tests, two ODIs and two T20Is for Australia in his career. He was in Australia’s squad for a Test match against Pakistan in Sydney earlier this year. He didn’t play any of the four matches in India. The Ashes series 2013 in England was his last outing in Tests.

The 23-year-old has taken just two wickets with the ball in two Tests. He had scored 98 runs against England in Nottingham, 2013 on his debut. He was involved in a record tenth wicket partnership with Phillip Hughes.

Agar was picked in Australia’s 13-man squad for Bangladesh tour. He has told that he is far more improved bowler than the past. He sees improvement in his bowling action.

“I’ve simplified things a lot, my action is far more solid than it was then,” Agar told ABC Radio Perth last weekend.

“I could really feel it slipping then, that was very frustrating for me.

“I knew I wasn’t absolutely bowling at my best, but I just had to try and find a way to get through that.

“My action is far more solid (now).

“I’m definitely getting to be a far more consistent bowler I believe and I’m a more experienced bowler.

“I know what to do in situations a lot better than what I would have back then.”
