  • James Faulkner says he will return to international cricket a fitter and stronger allrounder

Yet it wasn't enough for him to hold his spot in the side for the next ODI campaign in the United Kingdom, despite the memory of that Auckland masterpiece still being fresh and the fact, as noted by captain Steve Smith at the time, he had bowled as fast as Australia's "Big Four" quicks in the Edgbaston nets.

The Australians' dominance began with a second-wicket stand between David Warner and captain Steven Smith, after Hilton Cartwright had been sent back for a second-ball duck by medium-pacer Avesh Khan.

It was all-rounder Marcus Stoinis and wicket-keeper Matthew Wade who provided the fireworks for Australia in the death-overs.

Brief Scores: Australia 347/7 (Marcus Stoinis 76, Travis Head 65, David Warner 64, Steve Smith 55, Washington Sundar 2/23) beat Board President's XI 244 (Shreevats Goswami 43, Mayank Agarwal 42, Kushang Patel 41 not out, Ashton Agar 4/44) by 103 runs. I've been to three IPLs and for an "A" tour, we've got an Indian coach - S Sriram (spin consultant) - and we're working closely with him.

"I think when you are exposed to conditions, it obviously helps", Stoinis said. I have bowled aplenty to him at the nets. "I worked with Sriram during my first season in the Indian Premier League with Delhi Daredevils in 2015. It was mostly about tightening my defence on subcontinent tracks and trying to trust that before going on to attack", said Stoinis. However, James Faulkner and myself are different types of all-rounders.

It has maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and is moving west-northwest at 7 miles per hour , according to the advisory. USA Today said on Thursday the storm was likely to shift northward, edging the Mid-Atlantic as it tracked up the coast.

The Board President's XI, led by Gurkeerat Mann and coached by former India global Hemang Badani, had a specific approach in mind with chief national selector MSK Prasad watching from the stands. With 340 on the board, it is hard from ball one.

Ambidextrous Akshay Karnewar came into the limelight in the recent practice game against Australia.

Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Nitish Rana and Washington Sundar failed to contribute in the middle-overs as Board President's XI were eventually bundled out for 244 with 10 balls to spare. "We need heavy runs - 350, yes". It is also about understanding these conditions and what lengths you want to bowl.

While providing some puzzles of his own, Stoinis was also at the receiving end of it on his way to 76 in the match.
