- West Indies vs Australia 3rd ODI match, Australian stalwart returns after 7 years
- Australia fielded Dan Christian in the third ODI
- Australian all-rounder’s passion and passion for cricket is not ending
The morale of the Australian team was high in the third and final match of the ODI series played between West Indies and Australia. The series was tied at 1-1 and West Indies could have dominated but still the Aussies were under no pressure at all. The proof of this was his team selection where he suddenly fielded a player who had not played a single ODI match in the last 7 years in the deciding match. We are talking about 38 year old Dan Christian (Dan Christian) Of.
When Australia announced their playing 11 for the third ODI against hosts West Indies in Bridgetown, everyone was stunned. The reason was all-rounder Dan Christian. Australia included this 38-year-old all-rounder in their team. This was surprising because Dan Christian played his last ODI match against England in Perth on 24 January 2014 and from that day till today he was missing from ODI cricket.
How was the performance, the shocking decision shown here too
Obviously, if any player gets a chance to play again in the national team after so many years, then he would like to show his every skill on the field so that the decision to make his comeback proves right. But something strange happened here. In the match, West Indies team won the toss and decided to bat first. The Australian team came out to bowl and they bundled the West Indies team for 152 runs in 45.1 overs. The surprising thing was that not a single over was made from all-rounder Dan Christian. That too on a pitch where the bowlers were dominated. At the same time, when it came to chasing the target, Dane Christian, who was waiting for his batting at number eight, did not turn as Australia won at the loss of 4 wickets.
From IPL auction to T20 national team selection
Dan Christian is undoubtedly 38 years old, but perhaps at this age, he is getting more demand than he might have been during the days of his youthful career. He did well in the Big Bash League, so the eyes of all the IPL franchises were also on him. When the IPL players were auctioned last time, Dan Christian, who had a base price of Rs 75 lakh, was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 4 crore 80 lakh after competing with the rest of the teams.
He had earlier also been associated with Virat-led RCB in the Indian Premier League in the sixth season. Not only the IPL auction, soon after, when Australia’s T20 team was announced for the series against West Indies, Dan Christian’s name was also included there. He was featured in four T20 matches against West Indies where he could not take a single wicket and scored 42 runs.
Who is Daniel Trevor Christian?
After all, who is Daniel Trevor Christian, some fans might have forgotten this name because his international career has only started after such a long gap. Dan Christian made his international debut in 2010 playing T20 against West Indies in Sydney, while in ODIs he made his debut against India in 2012. He has so far scored 273 runs in 20 ODIs and has taken 20 wickets. While in 20 T20 Internationals he has scored 69 runs and taken 11 wickets.
