“We’re playing against India and it’s a chance to get two points” – Ferguson
New Zealand paceman Lockie Ferguson thinks that putting pressure and taking wickets early on is the key to beating ahead of their clash against them on Thursday, June 13 in Nottingham.
“They showed to us that they’re likely significantly more patient as it were,” Ferguson said. “Also, in spite of the fact that we’re hoping to take wickets, once in a while we got somewhat costly. I think taking wickets up front is the way to [beating] India at the same time, if not, creating pressure and building dots.
“They’re world-class players, you’re not going to destroy them, yet if you can develop enough pressure against them and, at that point make a half-chance, that could be the wicket and you would then be able to work from that point.”
He also said that they were looking forward to play against India and will try their very best to gain two points from them. “Clearly, they’re playing some extraordinary cricket and they’re one of the top team in the tournament yet we’re unquestionably anticipating the chance of playing them in England and we haven’t played them for some time in England,” the right arm pacer said.
“It’s the World Cup. We’re playing against India in the World Cup and it’s a chance to get two points and we would prefer not to get rained out games. I don’t figure any players do however if that occurs, at that point so be it. We can’t control that however we’re anticipating playing India and getting some confidence against them,” he added.
