Renshaw told AAP, “Ashwin is difficult to face. He is a smart bowler with a lot of variation and he uses them very well, but once you face him you get used to it.” ” “I think the biggest challenge with Ashwin and any left-arm offspinner in the spin position is the LBW threat.
“Obviously everyone thinks about the one who turns and gets you caught in the slips, but the big LBW is when it doesn’t spin. You just have to be ready for that.
“I think batting at No.5 for two years has helped me in facing spin. I know my game a lot better now and I am a lot more comfortable in different conditions. But it will be difficult to create pressure.” On the way, but I know I’ll be ready if I get the chance.”
Renshaw is still part of the Brisbane Heat’s BBL campaign and has been preparing for India by throwing spinners like Mitch Swepson, Matt Kuhnmann and even Marnus Labuschagne the SG ball used in Test cricket in India. ,
“The SG ball is a bit different, so we are trying to prepare well during this BBL schedule, if we get a chance to hit the red balls,” Renshaw said. “It’s very different conditions in India, so we are trying to replicate them as much as possible.
“If the plan was [the Heat] knocked out we’ll do some prep with [Australian] team in Sydney, but we just kept winning and are in the final now. We’ve got a good week and a bit in India before the first Test, so there will be plenty of time to prepare.”
He did so on the back of strong form in first-class cricket. The new father to daughter Charlotte has seen his close friend and teammate Khawaja’s approach to cricket and has learned to enjoy the moment rather than worry about selection.
Renshaw said, “I’m feeling good with my cricket. I’m just rolling with any punches and enjoying myself.”
