This young England bowler troubled the New Zealand batsmen in his very first Test match and impressed everyone with his superb bowling.

The England team is currently playing a Test match with New Zealand (ENG vs NZ). In this Test match being played at Lord’s, a young fast bowler Matthew Potts has made his debut for England. He impressed a lot in his very first match. He managed to get the wicket of Kane Williamson in both the innings. Potts took four wickets in the first innings, this figure could have been five had he not been hurt. In the second innings, he took three wickets in his name. That is, seven wickets in his very first test match. Potts is counted among those players who learn the nuances of the game from their senior players as soon as they enter the dressing room. He also played in the Pakistan Super League, where he learned a lot from stalwarts like Aaqib Javed. The urge to learn this changed his story. He keeps asking questions constantly. He asked one such question to Durham’s bowling coach Neil Killeen, who is from Under-14 with Potts.

The question was, “How to trouble a batsman when the pitch is not getting much help? The English newspaper has written in its reports that Neil started laughing after hearing these questions. But from here his way to go to the England team was decided. Neil said, “It is only because of the answer to this question that he has been able to make a place in the Test team of England today.”

Anderson and Broad’s ears must be eating

Neil said that Potts must have been eating the ears of two of England’s most successful bowlers, James Anderson and Stuard Broad. Neil told the Indian Express on the morning of the second day of the match, “There is no doubt that he will be following and learning from James Anderson and Stuard Broad. His first class level has gone up since last year and it has given me happiness. He has reached this far through his tireless hard work and ambition. He is not even on the strength of his natural skills. He has worked hard on every aspect of his game.

Unlike England bowlers

The way Potts got Williamson out or bowled in this match is different from ordinary English bowlers. England bowlers swing the ball forward and take wickets from there. But pots are different. He is a hit-the-deck hard bowler, ie tossing the ball hard on the pitch and bringing the ball in, keeping it straight. Neil further said about his specialty, now you can see. He is very different from the England bowlers. He slams the ball hard on the pitch. Like Australian bowlers. The ball that comes out to the right-handed batsmen is their stock ball. But his main weapon is the heavy seam ball.

Limited overs bowlers were considered

Neil said that till last season he was considered a limited overs bowler but now things have changed. He said, till last season, he was considered to be the best bowler of the white ball. He had a wobble seam, could bowl slow deliveries, could bowl yorkers. Could use bouncers well and had cutters. Now they are doing everything together.

Potts was also a part of Pakistan Super League team Lahore Qalandars. He came as a backup bowler for the team but when he was asked to leave, he requested the team management to stay in the team for a few days. Lahore coach Aaqib Javed while talking about this said, there was no need for him, but he asked and he stopped, it tells a lot about this player. He used to constantly ask questions to Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, me constantly. How to do reverse swing, how to do scrambled seam.
