Australian team adopts a new attitude of listening to rookies

Posted By: Staff

Perth, Dec 11(ANI): Australian fast bowler Doug Bollinger has revealed that experience now counts for little as the team has adopted a new attitude of listening to rookies.

The Australian team, which has for long been a hub of experienced players like Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Mathew Hayden, among others has been taken over by youngsters. And, with their departure the side can no longer rely solely on the older generation.

The 28-year-old is the oldest member of Australia's pace attack and has no problems voicing concerns to skipper Ricky Ponting and the rest of the side.

"It doesn't matter if you've played two games, 100 games, 50 Tests, as long as everyone's putting their input in and doing something for the team, that's more the motto we're trying to go with rather than experienced players blah, blah, blah," The Age quoted Bollinger, as saying

Bollinger also said that he gets along with fellow quickies Mitchell Johnson, Peter Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus.We all get along, all four of us, and Troy Cooley the bowling coach have spoken a lot. If anything happens we make sure we speak up," Bollinger said.

"Sometimes you try and do that on the field, whether it's a good time or a bad time, you like to put your comments in just because you're think you're a bit older and all that," he added. (ANI)
