Tomorrow cricbuzz prediction: Renshaw is not thinking about India, hoping to impress SA

Matt Renshaw returned to the reckoning in November after a strong Queensland performance in the Sheffield Shield and a century of Prime Minister’s XI against the West Indies.

Test He cricketer Matt Renshaw is almost happy he is back in the Australian regime after five years and will be selected for his third Test against South Africa in Sydney on Wednesday. He says he tries to make a “good impression”.

The left-handed, 26-year-old hasn’t worn baggy greens since the 2018 episode of Sandpaper. He has made his 11 tests so far, with a maximum score of 184.

However, he was drafted to the roster for the final test against the Proteas due to injuries to key players in all-rounder Cameron Green and pace bowler Mitchell Stark. Renshaw returned to the reckoning in November after a strong performance for Queensland in the Sheffield Shield and a century in Prime Minister’s XI against the West Indies.

“I think the test in Sydney in particular will be great for me as it’s the last test of the summer before a few trips,” Renshaw told SEN on Monday.

Renshaw has indicated he is not looking forward to the four test series against India starting in early February, saying he just wants to focus on the task at hand.

“I learned a lot that you can’t count chickens as I know in cricket. So keep doing what you can once you’re in the group… I try to make a good impression and help out as much as I can when I’m not playing,” Renshaw said.

The batsman indicated he was likely to click for Sydney, and he said some technical changes he had made recently had given him confidence.

“Yes, anyway. After that break (five years), we had some technical changes and we were trying to work on some things that we felt we struggled with during the season, but we changed the tech during the season. I found it difficult to do.

“So we waited until the off-season and made some changes and tried to incorporate them. Renshaw added his biggest win while away from Australia as calculation strengthened his determination.

“I think the most important thing for me is the way I think. The way I bat, the way I play cricket is probably the biggest change for me in the last few years. I have come a long way as a person and as a cricketer. I think I did,” he said.

In his 2016 Test debut, the batsman averaged 33.47, setting his personal highest score of 184 against Pakistan in 2017 in Sydney.

“Like most of his 20-year-olds with normal jobs and normal lives, [being in a national team environment] is old. However, being put in front of the world and the media by playing for the Australian national team was something I didn’t really appreciate at the time (2016-17).
