Canberra [Australia] : Australia skipper Steven Smith applauded the bowlers and young opener Jake Fraser-McGurk following a whitewash in the three-match series, after winning the third and final ODI at Australia at Manuka Oval on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old spoke of the brilliant performance shown by the Australian bowlers in the last match of the series.
‘It was a good performance, bowlers put it in the right areas and everything seemed to work out. One of those days where everything came off. It’s been good, good opportunity to expose a few players to international cricket and they’ve shown that they can play at this level. Nice to see a couple of guys play really well,’ Smith said after winning the match
Smith further hailed the young opener Fraser-McGurk’s quickfire knock where he scored 41 runs off just 18 balls which was laced by five fours and three sixes.
‘He (Fraser-McGurk) was exciting, hits them clean when he gets hold of them. Plenty of guys who can get up there and give it a whack. It’s been fun, they put the ball in the right areas and picked up wickets,’ the right-hand batter added.
