'Best gloveman in the country': Harris backs 'popular' Paine to play in Ashes

  'Best gloveman in the country': Harris backs 'popular' Paine to play in Ashes Marcus Harris insists Tim Paine remains a popular member of the Test team and believes he deserves to play in the Ashes on merit. Speaking on Wednesday from quarantine on the Gold Coast, the opener said Paine – who resigned as skipper last Friday – can “absolutely” be a key player without the captaincy. “He’s done a really good job in the last few years under tough circumstances,” Harris said of the 36-year-old wicketkeeper.

The diehards and the students that came into the ground after school, however, were fortunate enough to witness something they wouldn't quickly forget. Cameron Green had already made a big impression on the first-class cricket scene before then, taking 5-24 on debut as a 17-year-old against Tasmania nearly three years earlier. He'd also shown what he could do with the bat, notably putting James Pattinson on the hill at the WACA more than once one day, but to that point he was seen by his state primarily as a

"Good hard day of Test cricket today, I thought Rishabh and the whole Indian side played fantastically, took the game on and deserved the win. I would have liked the cracks to play a few more tricks, but it was a pretty good wicket. Once you were in, it was pretty free-flowing, the runs. Cricket is played Country Vs. Country at the highest level. This was an instance of the Indian cricket team touring Australia and beating them on their strongest ground ( cricket is generally very dependent on location - because of the way the pitch is prepared and maintained ) called the Gabba - or the Gabbatoir.

Nearly one year after making his Test debut for Australia, Cameron Green is more confident in himself than ever before.

Ahead of the Ashes next week, the all-rounder spoke about how he has tweaked his game and prepared for arguably his most important Test series yet.

Green acknowledged that he has grown since making his national team debut against India last year, and believes remaining active with the Western Australian team has been crucial.

"I think where you learn your cricket is at the state level," Green said.

"Australia has the best domestic competition in the world.

"I feel like I've been in really good stead playing most weeks for WA, and that's how I've prepared myself for Test cricket.

The reason early risers do better in life could be down to the fact that getting the chores out of the way and the children out of bed in good time helps people fit in better with hectic modern life, he told a British Psychological Society conference. "Maybe morning types are just better suited to this industrial world we are in than late risers", he said. The differences between the two groups are small and there can be certain advantages to being an evening person, for example in jobs that require you to work late, he added. The survey also found that people who watch a lot of television are more likely to skip

there's no better feeling than skiing down a steep slope.

"Heading into the Test summer last year I think I was a bit down on confidence, and obviously the last few years I haven't bowled that much and had a few restrictions.

"This year I've bowled in most games that I have played, and that will hold me in better stead".

Green has also been working extensively at training with former Australian paceman Matt Mason.

On top of improving the technical aspects of Green's bowling, emphasis has also been put into his bowling action, with the aim to reduce the potential for injury following a string of back problems in past years.

"Matt Mason has been unreal - he came into the setup a couple of years ago and brought everything he's learned from the past decade in England," Green explained.

A West-Australian, Green potentially faces the scenario of not playing in his home state for the second year running as an Australian Test player, if border restrictions prevent the Perth Test from going ahead.

He has, however, noted the similarities between the Gabba and his home ground the WACA.

"I love playing at the Gabba -  it's similar to the WACA in the way it plays," Green said.

"It has a similar bounce, similar pace, and is a similar kind of game that you have to play.

"It's always nice when you have a bit of success at the ground, and that gives me some confidence heading into the first Test".

The first ball of the 2021/22 Ashes series will be bowled in the First Test at Brisbane's Gabba venue on Saturday, December 8.
