Tim Southee admits ‘no hiding’ from lack of wickets ahead of the 100th test

Tim Southee admits ‘no hiding’ from lack of wickets ahead of the 100th test. “I haven’t got as many wickets as I would like. “I have probably not been where I should be as the most experienced bowler seamer on the team. ” Southee admitted.

New Zealand captain Tim Southee will play his 100th Test against Australia in Christchurch, which begins on March 8. Ahead of that, the 35-year-old is concerned about his recent struggles in international cricket and admits that he is not performing at the level he should be given his experience. Notably, in the first Test against their Trans-Tasman rivals, Southee took only two wickets as New Zealand lost by 172 runs.

Reflecting on this, Southee stated that there is no escaping his current form and that he is working extremely hard to change the situation in the upcoming Test.

“You always want to be performing at your best, and I don’t think there’s any denying that wickets are the currency we deal in as bowlers, and I haven’t gotten the wickets I’ve wanted in the last three Test matches. ESPNcricinfo quoted Southee as saying, “I’ve probably not been where I should be as the most experienced bowler seamer in the side.”

“But, like everyone else, you strive to improve every week. Every week, you strive to present your best self. Prepare as much as possible to give yourself the best chance, and this has been the case for the past few days. I have done that. But there’s no getting around the fact that the last few Test matches have been disappointing. I am aware of this. I always want more wickets. “And hopefully there will be more,” he added.

Meanwhile, like Southee, Kane Williamson will play his 100th Test against Australia in Christchurch. The former New Zealand captain is regarded as one of the greatest cricket players of all time, having scored 8675 runs at an average of 55.25 in the game’s longest format.
