David Willey is targeting to deliver the best performance of his cricketing career & said that his “best cricket is probably still to come” after his outstanding five wicket haul on Thursday.
The 30 year’s old rhapsodic performance helped his side to grab a six wicket win over Ireland in the first ODI series. However before entering into this series fast bowler had missed England’s almost 22 white ball games. Willey gave credit to his bowling coach Pyrah for investing time in his bowling & directing him towards an outstanding performance.
“He’s had me badgering him at all times of the day in the winter and fortunately he has invested some time in me. I feel like I’m moving in the right direction and I feel like my best cricket is probably still to come,” quoted Willey as saying.
During the first ODI match Ireland managed to score just 172 runs after batting fast whereas Sam Billings & Eoin Morgan’s smashing knock of 67 & 36 has helped England to hail victory.
Willey further stated that, “It was just special to be out there playing for England again. The main priority was to enjoy it. I’ve gone away and worked quite hard to get back near my best. It’s been a roller-coaster, but I was just out there enjoying my cricket today.” The second ODI between England & Ireland will be played on Saturday.
