The Aussies will play against the Indian team to win the World Test Championship Final. The recently concluded test match series between India and Australia was won by India by 2-1. Usman Khawaja was the best batter from the Australian side. He played and counter-attacked the spin attack very well. After the World Test Championship Final, the Australian side will stay in England to play the Ashes. The left-hander says that England is the toughest place to bat for the top-order batsman in test cricket. He also mentioned the importance of the new ball and weather conditions which play a role in the batting.

Usman Khawaja in the pre-Ashes camp said that

England is, in my opinion, the toughest place in the world to bat for a top three batsman, plain and simple,” said Usman Khawaja

The new ball is tough work, but then you get some [weather] conditions, and it’s a bit of luck involved in it, too. Sometimes you get the other team out, then suddenly the clouds roll over,. And other times you’re out there and it’s nice and sunny.”

Usman Khawaja further added that

“If I’ve learned anything, it’s work hard, train hard. If you’re going to England, go with low expectations. And then just work on every game one at a time because you are going to fail as a batsman. But when you do score, you try to cash in as much as you can.”

Usman Khawaja has been in the form of his life. The Aussie fans expect a lot from him in this England tour.
