- Murphy is grateful for the opportunity to learn from Lyon.
As he prepares to take against Pakistan in the forthcoming cricketing summer, Australian cricketer Todd Murphy revealed his eagerness to bowl Babar Azam and highlighted the difficult tasks that lie ahead.
“Bowling to Pakistan’s top order batters would be a challenge,” acknowledged Murphy, emphasizing the skill and prowess of Pakistan’s batsmen.
Speaking specifically about the 29-year-old Murphy praised Babar Azam, stating, “Babar Azam is a very good player, and Pakistan’s top order boasts players with great class. I am not sure if Babar Azam is playing against PM XI, but it would be exciting to bowl against him. It’s always great to get a chance to test yourself against a test-playing nation.”
Answering a question regarding Ricky Ponting’s recent statement about Pakistan’s bowling attack, Todd Murphy stated “Playing against Pakistan would be a huge challenge. Pakistan has a good bowling attack, and I don’t agree with the statement that they have a weak bowling attack.”
Highlighting the significance of the upcoming series, Murphy expressed that it is a great opportunity for him to start the cricketing summer. “It’s always a great opportunity to play in front of family, friends, and fans. The atmosphere and support make it a special experience,” he added.
Murphy acknowledged the formidable resistance posed by the Australian side and said, “Nathan Lyon is a top-class player. He always provides a lot of wisdom, and playing alongside him is a great learning experience.”
The first Test match between the Pakistani cricket team and Australia will take place in Perth from December 14 to 18, and then there will be a second Test match in Melbourne on December 26. The last match of the tour will take place in Sydney on January 3, 2024.
The team is scheduled to leave Lahore on November 30.
