Black Caps’ batting coach Craig
McMillan has a message to his charges
as they prepare to face the heat of
Australia’s quick bowlers on the lively
Waca pitch in the second test starting
For all the chest thumping talk of
the likes of Australia’s coach Darren
Lehmann about wanting to see New
Zealand’s batsmen squirm against
Mitchell Starc and Mitchell Johnson,
McMillan says the pace of the pitch can
work to the batsmens’ advantage.
“ You get full value for your shots,”
former international batsman McMillan
said last night.
“Pace is not something to be feared. It’s
to be excited by and encouraged. It ’s just
about adjusting, and the fact Starc and
Johnson are pretty much above 140kph
all the time, that is a slight adjustment.”
For all the Waca’s feared reputation for
turning batsmen twitchy against true
quicks, McMillan, who played two tests
and an ODI in Perth, reckons it is more
akin to the Gabba pitch in Brisbane, the
scene of Australia’s 208-run first test
He did not exactly give it the “it’s a load
of old cobblers” line but did hint that the
Waca legend was much different from
the modern day reality.
“Perhaps it has a longer history in
terms of that (pace and bounce), which
is part of the fairytale story that gets
related every time there’s a test in Perth.
“The practice wickets are a lot quicker
than in the middle, so that will be good
for the guys. I remember them being the
quickest I batted on anywhere in the
“Get through them, if they’re
comfortable on them, then being out in
the middle won’t offer any challenges.”
McMillan acknowledged being one-
down in a series is nothing new for this
squad — in the United Arab Emirates
and England within the past year for
starters — but believes their ability to
rebound quickly points to character and
desire to show they are better than the
previous result would indicate.
“Generally they adjust very quickly to
conditions and opposition. Sometimes
in first tests we’ve been a bit slow to do
that. But there’s no doubt the guys will
be better off for the time spent out in
the middle. I think they will be more
confident from a mental side.
“ We’ve got a lot of smart cricketers in
this side. They tend to work things out
Seamer Tim Southee, assessing his
sore back, had a light workout in the nets
at the Waca yesterday and came through
comfortably. On a day where practice
was optional, only Southee, who needed
to, and Kane Williamson, who does not
but rarely misses a chance to net, took up
It means today will be the only practice
session between the tests for most of
the squad. Neil Wagner and Mitchell
McClenaghan had a bowling session at
local club Melville on Tuesday.
Williamson is sure to be a focus for
Australia after his 140/59 double in
“I didn’t realise what a good player he
is,” Johnson said last night.
“He can play all of the shots. He
looked good in defence and it is a really
good challenge and I am really looking
for ward to playing him out here on a
ground that I really enjoy bowling on
and really test myself against him.”
Prime ministers and cricket legends paid
tribute to iconic player and commentator
Richie Benaud last night as a book about
his illustrious life was launched at the
The book, Richie — the Man Behind
the Legend, contains almost 90 individual
pieces including former prime minister
Bob Hawke and cricketing greats Shane
Warne, Steve Waugh and Sir Garfield
Benaud, who died in April aged 84, was
named as an honoree of the Bradman
Foundation at the Bradman Gala Dinner,
which followed the launch.
It was announced his place as patron
of the Bradman Foundation, which he
had held since 2002, would be taken
by another former prime minister,
John Howard. “He was a person of
extraordinary generosity, he patiently
played golf with me at Avondale golf club
one day and that takes an extraordinary
degree of patience and generosity,”
In a recorded message played at
the dinner, Prime Minister Malcolm
Turnbull said Benaud captured the hearts
and minds of generations of Australians.
“He was a legend on the field and he
was a giant in the commentary box,” he
said. “ To many, that iconic voice came to
be the sound of the Australian summer
and it plays in our minds even now.”
Among the many cricketing luminaries
present at the dinner were Benaud ’s
former team-mates, Neil Har vey and
Alan Davidson, other Australian legends,
Bob Simpson and Adam Gilchrist, and
New Zealand champion Sir Richard
Davidson’s association with Benaud
stretched over seven decades. “I first
played against Richie when he was 14
and I was 15,” Davidson said. “It ’s funny
how we both recalled the game so vividly.
He remembers me bowling to him; I
remember him batting against me.”
Asked if he succeeded in dismissing
Benaud, Davidson said: “No way — he
frustrated me. On the game, we were very
similar. We both loved to win and hated
losing and, if ever there was a chance of
winning the game, the risk was worth it.”
Benaud ’s widow Daphne and his
younger brother John, another Australian
test representative, both spoke warmly
about him. “He was a lovely gentle person
to be with, a fun person to be with,”
“I’ve never heard a bad word about him
an absolutely fantastic bloke,” John
said. — AAP
