‘I Am Working On The Carrom Ball For WTC Final Like R Ashwin,’ Australian Spinner Reveals His Plan Before The Mega Clash

India and Australia both the teams are all set to face each other in the final of the World Test Championship. The match will start on June 7 at the Oval and this is the second time team India has made its place into the summit clash. Meanwhile, the 22-year-old off-spinner Todd Murphy has expressed his intention to enhance his bowling skills by learning the technique to deliver a carrom ball. Murphy drew inspiration from observing India’s veteran spinner R Ashwin during his participation in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy held in India earlier this year.

In the debut series, Todd Murphy received acclaim from cricket experts for his impressive performance. Despite Australia’s 2-1 defeat in the Test series against India, Murphy made a remarkable impact by taking 14 wickets in four matches. The main achievement of Murphy in this series was his 5-wicket haul on his Test Debut.

The entrance of Murphy into the Australian squad has lent support to Nathan Lyon who is the most established spinner for Aussies in recent times. Despite Lyon’s prominent position, Murphy’s impressive performances have caught the attention of everyone and this skillful bowler has strengthened the spin bowling department of India.

Todd Murphy makes his place in the Australian squad for the WTC final and the upcoming Ashes against England. For both important events, Murphy is developing his variations and training hard in the nets.

“I am still working on that but I am still a long way off being able to do it the way Ravi Ashwin can,” Murphy said, as quoted by AAP.
