Doug Bracewell must keep aiming higher after bowling New Zealand to victory against Australia, according to his coach John Wright.
Wright believes the young seamer has what it takes to become a truly world-class bowler and called on him to make sure he consistently puts in performances like the match figures of 9 for 60 which included the key wickets of Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke and Michael Hussey.
“He’s done some special things,” Wright said of the bowler.
“We’ve been here before. We were in a similar situation against Zimbabwe going in to the last session of the game and Doug stood up in that match and he’s done it again.”
Wright added that although Bracewell could do become a special player, was quick to point out that there are a number of other members of the side who look set for greatness. Those following the best online cricket betting should remember this.
However, he also warned that it will take time for these players to gain the experience they need to truly shine on the world stage.
Wright had special reason to be pleased about New Zealand’s unexpected win over Australia as it made him the only person to be involved in the side’s three victories at the home of their great rivals.
He was present as an opening batsman in their two 1985 victories at the Gabba and the Waca and, obviously coached the side to their latest triumph which took place in Hobart.
