Test cricket

'Test cricket is harder than it looks'

Carlyle Laurie

Australia’s Test opener Ed Cowan tells Subash Jayaraman, in a podcast for The Cricket Couch, that Test cricket has become even more difficult for a batsman as pitches today are more bowler friendly.

Test cricket is harder than it looks. I’ve got a lot more respect for the guys who have done really well in test cricket for a long period of time to deal with that. Test cricket is really interesting at the moment because the wickets have started to become a little bowler friendly, a bit more conducive to 40 wickets falling in a match. And that makes for really good cricket. So, it is just interesting seeing it from close quarters. I feel like I belong and I can do really well. It has been a bit more emotionally exhausting than I thought it would be.
