Walsh told to reporters that he is focusing on consistency in this camp which Tiger bowlers lacked in recent home series.

“We are working on the mental side of bowling in the camp. They have to back themselves and keep it simple. In my assessment, that’s what has happened in the last series. The guys went a little bit over the top in terms of trying a bit too hard. They have to know what best to do in a situation and how to execute it. If they get the consistency, eight out of ten times it will work in your favour. We are trying to get them to be consistent and remain relaxed with the execution,” said Walsh.

“We haven’t bowled as consistently as we would have liked so this camp is to focus on that. They have to understand their roles in the upcoming tour.

“The camp is also to make them know what fast bowling is all about, and the hard work that is required. It is a combination of both. We are trying to keep it simple. We are focused on the consistency, working on the skill-set and get a better understanding of it,” he added.
