Australian leg-spinner Mitchell Swapson admitted that he was disappointed at the hosts’ 11-run defeat in the first T20 cricket match at the hands of India. Swapson was included in the squad in place of injured spinner Ashton Agar. He took the wicket of Virat Kohli for 21 runs in two overs.
‘Pressure was on good performance’
“I am a bit disappointed with my bowling,” he told Sony Network. He, however, said that getting Kohli’s wicket in the first over was a relief. He said, ‘My first three balls were not good. Kohli’s wicket on the fourth ball removed the pressure. He said, ‘I was so thrilled and there was pressure to perform well with this extreme thrill.
‘I was nervous’
He said that I was a little nervous. Overall I am disappointed with my performance but it is always good to take such a wicket. Asked whether the Australian team can play two leg spinners simultaneously, he said, “In the T20 format, leg spinners are important. Big Bash League, Indian Premier League or international cricket, all have been influenced by spinners.
