Highlight Story

Australian fast bowler Doug Bollinger is surprised to learn that England’s batsmen are preparing for the upcoming Ashes series by listening to the tunes of famous rock band ACDC.

The innovative preparation is to make the batsmen focus harder on bowling during nets at their indoor cricket centre.

The temperature of the indoor center has also been increased by a few degrees to simulate Australia’s conditions to prepare for the Ashes starting in November, a report in the Sydney Morning Herald said on Sunday. The England team have also imported a high-tech batting machine from the US which replicates bowlers actions.

“I don’t understand it. I don’t like ACDC, so I won’t be singing any of their songs (to the English),” Bollinger remarked on England’s preparation for the five Test matches.
