Mitchell Johnson on Indian Squad: Former Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson, playing for India Capitals in Legends League Cricket, had a special conversation with ABP News in Lucknow. During this, Johnson has said a lot about India’s World Cup team, Australia’s new ODI captain and playing in the Legends League.
Not taking Shami in the team is a big mistake: Johnson
In a special conversation with ABP News, Mitchell Johnson has given a big statement about India’s T20 World Cup team. Mitchell Johnson said, “There should have been an extra fast bowler in the Indian team. Johnson further said that fast bowler Mohammed Shami should have been taken in the main team. He has been kept as a standby player. This can be a big mistake. “
‘It is not the right decision to choose three spinners considering the conditions of Australia’
Johnson further said, “India’s selectors must have chosen a balance team according to their own. But giving place to three spinners in the team is not a very good option in my opinion. Spinners are not going to get much turn in Australia. But there will be extra bounce. In such a situation, there should have been an extra fast bowler in the team.
Told his choice about Australia’s ODI captain
At the same time, Mitchell Johnson also talked to ABP News about the new ODI captain of Australia. He said, “Australia don’t have a lot of options. Mitchell Marsh has been in the news for quite some time now. Apart from him, Glenn Maxwell can also be a good option. He would love to captain Australia.”
At the same time, on the speculations that David Warner and Steve Smith would be given the captaincy, Mitchell Johnson said that neither of these two should be the captain. He is the senior player of the team. He should guide the team like before. Both of them are in the last stages of their careers, so they should not be given the captaincy. Johnson also told Travis Head an option, but he said that his lack of consistent performance is a big problem.
Johnson said this about India Capitals and Legends League
Regarding his role in the India Capitals team and preparing for the Legends League, Mitchell Johnson said, “It was a lot of fun. Although there were some tough times. Like coming to the nets with my teammates after 6-7 weeks of training. Nice. It is very difficult to keep yourself ready as a bowler, that too when you have been away from cricket for a long time. I played my last professional match in the year 2018. After that I played a charity match was.”
Will Legends continue to bowl with their old advances in the league as well? In response to this question, Johnson said, “Those days are gone. I am playing with India Capitals, I try to swing the ball more and bowl one or two shots in the middle sometimes. I am here I want to enjoy every match to the fullest. I want to play here with retired players and enjoy the match to the fullest.”
