England speedster Stuart Broad today said that he does not agree with the theory of one on one clash of a batsmen and bowler. He made this statement related to the combat expected between visiting captain Virat Kohli and veteran quick James Anderson.
“I really don’t agree with the theory that one particular bowler can target a world-class batsman,” Broad was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council (ICC) website.
“You have to have that pressure and theatre at both ends against that sort of quality — that’s when you get mistakes. “If he’s able to really watch Jimmy (Anderson) and play carefully but score off me, you’re taking away any advantage as a team.
“As a bowling unit, we will just have to make it as hard for all of their batsmen to score early runs, but particularly a key player like Virat. We have to try and create pressure that way,” he added.
