An underwhelming run within the World Cup however, Netherlands batsman Teja Nidamanuru hoped to profit from his expertise of taking part in towards Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja and develop into a extra constant batsman on the top-flight cricket.
Nidamanuru, who had a superb outing within the ICC Qualifiers in June, confirmed glimpses of his expertise with a brisk 39-ball 54 right here towards India on Sunday.
“It was a lesson. In terms of where I’ve been batting personally, playing spin when it’s turning and being able to do that when under pressure has been a challenge.
“I think it’s one thing being able to do it against teams at a lower intensity,” mentioned Nidamanuru after Netherland’s 160-run defeat towards India.
The right-hander with roots in Vijayawada mentioned he wanted to study to launch stress within the middle-overs when spinners are working.
“Ravindra Jadeja was hitting the top of the stumps every time. So, it’s about being able to turn that good ball into a single at least to relieve pressure,” he mentioned.
Nidamanuru confirmed his abilities when he hoisted Kuldeep over cowl for six by way of an inside-out shot, and he wished to work on these areas.
“Kuldeep is world-class and has taken a lot of wickets. I was trying to study him, even on the bus on our way into the ground. I was trying to pick his wrong ‘un, watch videos of his wrist. It is all about being able to do it consistently and it is good when it comes off,” mentioned Nidamanuru.
The 29-year-old termed the match towards India as a terrific studying expertise regardless of the drubbing.
“The level of cricket India are playing at in terms of the execution, that’s where we have come up short. Our skill, manoeuvring of the ball, strike rotation, boundary striking in the middle stage – all of it probably doesn’t match up,” he mentioned.
Nidamanuru used the innings of Shreyas Iyer (128 off 94 balls) as a pointer.
“If you look at how Shreyas played as compared to how we approached the middle stages, you could see the difference. We’re looking forward to de-briefing, and to continue our evolution overall.
“The middle overs of the game, where the best teams are going at six an over without taking risks, we’re losing five-six wickets and that’s the difference,” he famous.
