England's Test captain, Joe Root, said Wednesday that the team has to "look in the mirror" in order to make cricket a welcoming sport. Ollie Robinson, who was suspended this week after making offensive remarks in the past, was on Joe Root's mind.


Smith Steve stated that Test cricket is “my main goal” ahead of the Ashes as they are around the corner.

Smith declared that he wants to match the standard of his previous Ashes efforts.

He had to pull out of West Indies’ limited-overs tour due to an elbow injury.

During a recent interview, former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith called Test cricket “my main goal” and looked forward to staying healthy so he could represent his country in the upcoming Ashes series starting in Brisbane on December 8.

The Twenty20 World Cup would hold little significance for Steve Smith if he doesn’t prepare well for the Ashes series with England, as Australia’s premier batsmen have made clear that Test cricket is more important. John HARVEY, who is currently captain of the Australian national team, has withdrawn from the team’s limited-overs tour of the West Indies, where he is the only member of the squad with extensive ODI experience. Recovery is going slower than expected, he said. “The time from now until the World Cup is a little over a month, and I’m tracking all right at the moment,” he said, as reported by cricket.com.au on Friday.

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the World Cup will now be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from October 17 to November 14.

He also stated that “I’d love to be a part of the World Cup,” to which he added.

In my opinion, test cricket is what I’m aiming for, which is to be right for the Ashes and attempt to emulate my recent Ashes performances.

Smith had a stellar series in the previous Ashes series upon his return from a ban for tampering with the ball.

Despite the numerous hostile English fans, he went on to smash seven74 runs in four Tests, putting up an incredible average of 110.57 in the process.

With the series about to begin on December 8 in Brisbane, his role for Australia will be underscored even further.

He wanted to be in a position to have an impact like that.

We may be forced to forgo participating in the World Cup if that is what it means. But hopefully, we don’t have to take that route.

Following a change in his batting grip, Smith said his injury began with pain in his left wrist at the start of last summer.

While playing in the recent Indian Premier League, he needed painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication. After that, he began working on his rehab.

“The past few weeks, I’ve made progress with it,” he stated. “After 10 minutes of batting, I started building up my bat swing, which is now the only thing that enables me to play again.

“I start with 10 minutes, and if I wake up the next day and am healthy, I increase to 12 minutes, and if I wake up well again, I go up to 15 minutes.

“Currently, I’m in the 15-minute range and I need to get to 45 in order to convince the doctors that I’m comfortable.”
