Gold Coast, Sep 27: Australian women team's pace bowling all-rounder Nicola Carey played a crucial role in her team's nail-biting win in the second Women's ODI against India. The all-rounder has, however, revealed that she looks up to Indian pace spearhead Jhulan Goswami and would like to bowl yorkers like the legendary seamer.
"She is extremely impressive, she was really good up-front with the new ball throughout the whole three WODIs, taking some really key wickets for India there," Carey told select Indian journalists during an interaction.
"And then she comes back at the death with those yorkers. I want to bowl yorkers like Goswami because she was very impressive there at the back-end. She had an amazing career and still (is) doing what she is doing, it is pretty impressive and ya I still want to bowl yorkers like Goswami, that is my goal," quipped the 28-year-old Carey.
Goswami in her over 15-year-long career has played 11 women's Tests, a staggering 192 ODIs and 68 T20s, having scalped 41, 240 and 56 wickets respectively. In the third and final ODI against Australia - which the Women In Blue won by two wickets - Goswami picked was adjudged the player of the match for returning with match-winning figures of 10-2-37-3.
Carey, who has played 20 WODIs and 18 WT20s and is yet to wear the whites, also described the Indian batting lineup as a 'dangerous' one. "They (Indian players) are incredible players. Mithali Raj is an experienced campaigner, scored truckloads of runs, a really committable batting line-up, so they are sort of dangerous in different ways, so we have got our plans to (for) them.
"And as you mentioned the pink ball coming up is a little bit different. Test match cricket they will probably come out playing a little bit differently," she said.
The Mithali Raj-led Indian women's team will play their maiden pink ball D/N test during the ongoing tour of Australia.
The match will be aired live on Sony Six (English), Sony Ten 3 (Hindi) and Sony Ten 4 (Tamil and Telugu) channels starting September 30th to October 3, 10 AM IST onwards.
