Aussie Meyer keen to adapt to English conditions after March Town Cricket Club debut
AUSTRALIAN star Ryan Meyer has pledged to adapt to the English conditions after making a chilly March Town Cricket Club debut.
The former Australia Under-19s star helped his new team-mates beat Long Sutton by 60 runs on a damp track at The Avenue on Saturday.
He took two wickets with his left-arm spin but was out stumped for nine to a delivery that kept low.
Meyer said: “I was wearing two sweaters and three tops - so it was a bit cold!
“The wicket was pretty slow but there’s still a bit of turn, I’ll just have to bowl a touch quicker than I normally would.
“You definitely wouldn’t see a wicket like that back home and the conditions are a lot different.
“I will just have to adapt and I’m very keen to do that.”
