Alex Carey on WTC Final

“We learned a lot to be able to bounce back (from two-nil down) to win in Indore (in the third Test). Which showed a lot of character. And then the last Test was a draw, so we walked away with a bit of confidence, knowing we were good enough in those conditions. There were just a few areas we would’ve liked to have cleaned up and now the grand final is here; this is what the last two years have led to,” Alex Carey told the ICC.

“We’ll wait and see what The Oval looks like too – there might be some grass on it, it might be dry . But it’s a pretty special opportunity to play in a ‘grand final’, so to speak. And obviously the Ashes is just around the corner, too,” he added. 

Alex Carey got praised for his keeping from the former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting

“Alex Carey’s Test career has grown a lot in the last 12 months; his wicketkeeping is almost second to none in world cricket at the moment. He had an unbelievable series in Australia last summer, and then his keeping in those trying conditions in India in the last Border-Gavaskar Trophy as well was absolutely outstanding,” Ricky Ponting said.
