Bristol: Wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow, who scored a brilliant century in the third ODI which England won against Pakistan, said he benefited a lot from his experiences in the just concluded edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Bairstow was in brutal mode on Tuesday, smacking 128 runs of just 93 balls as England chased down a challenging 359-run target with more than five overs to spare at the County Cricket Ground. His innings was studded with eight fours and four sixes. He had a tremendous debut IPL season as he scored 445 runs in the 10 matches he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
“I loved it there (IPL) and learned different things from different coaches and players (including teammate David Warner),” cricket.com.au quoted him as saying after the match. “It’s just little things like game plans. He (Warner) hits in completely different areas… I guess it is method more than anything else,” he added. (IANS)
