“I’m going to do everything to be as prepared as possible.”

With Australia’s fastest bowler, Mitchell Starc, unable to attend the opening Test of the series, Morris is likely to carry baggy greens.

Morris was Starc’s understudy and was in the Australian Test squad during their recent series win over South Africa. “Honestly, it might be my best chance to play there. Let’s see how it goes,” Morris said.

“It’s my first overseas trip in terms of cricket, so I’m learning a lot. I’m really excited to leave.”

“They see me as a strike bowler, and I’d probably take the place of someone who bowls fast and intimidating like Mitchell Stark.

“Honestly, I can’t believe we’re in the same sentence, so it sounds weird to say it like that. “But I think that’s the role I’d take (if Stark missed the test).

“I knew it could happen at some point, so it gave me the odd couple of weeks of training and preparation.

Morris currently represents the Big Bash his league Perth his Scorchers and balances the red and white ball his cricket.

So far he has taken six wickets in three matches, said Morris, who said he was “trying to cram as much as he can”.
