Bowling To My Own Coach In A World Cup: Jason Krejza




Jason Krejza

Jason Krejza

Here’s an interesting duel in the offing. Jason Krejza is all set to bowl to his own coach, John Davidson, in the upcoming game against Canada.

Meanwhile Davidson, 40, is all set to retire after the game against Australia. He had spent his entire life in Australia but this was the first time he has had an opportunity to face his country. Davidson is a part-time Canada cricketer and full-time coach at Australia’s Centre of Excellence. In his final game he is set to play against the men he has played with and also those he has mentored.

John Davison initially played the role of an offspinner for Victoria and South Australia, but never quite lived up to his potential and finished his career with 83 wickets for the states at an average of 55.56. When he discovered that he was eligible to play for Canada, having been born in British Columbia, it certainly revived his career hopes. Davison has played 31 one-day internationals for Canada, including 19 as captain, and he has scored 785 runs at 27.06 and collected 35 wickets at 29.65.

Davidson broke the record of the fastest century in the World cup 2003 against the West Indies by scoring it in 67 balls. His record has been surpassed by Hayden and Kevin O’ Brien in consecutive World Cups. He also recollected fond memories about the World cup on how everything he tried came off. He added that the ball didn’t do much in the air and hence he was able to hit through the line. He also hoped he could pull off a similar innings against Australia in his last game.

Krejza said he is looking forward to this interesting contest. He also said that Davidson is one of the better spin coaches he has had just because he thinks of things a little differently. He also added that he hoped Davidson to bring out something that doesn’t make him think very well. He says one session with a man like Davison is worth half a dozen with a team-mate or non-specialist coach, so the chance to bowl to him in a match should be invaluable – even if he is trying to belt Krejza out of the park.

Hi Folks! This is Gautham from Madurai, Tamil Nadu. I'm 20 and doing my final year in Mechanical Engineering at Thiagarajar College of Engineering. I'm a self confessed Cricket lover and I have a great fervor towards writing about the game. In the generations I've come across, I've loved watching Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid bat. Besides writing, I have great interest in singing and I'm a great fan of Hariharan and A.R.Rahman sir. I would like to be remembered as one of the greatest sports journalists who changed the way their profession is perceived. I set myself performance goals and believe in giving a hundred percent in whatever I do. I thank God for giving me an opportunity to work with sports mirror so early in my career. I also thank my friends who made me believe in what I do and gave honest comments about my writing. God is great :)
