Shaun Tait isn't too bothered about The Ashes

100MPH PACEMAN Shaun Tait has revealed that Australia captain Ricky Ponting has not been in tou

ch about next winter’s Ashes series. Following Tait’s terrorising performances in the r

ecent one-da2020管家婆全年八肖版 y series, Ponting claimed he had not

given up on persuading the 27-year-old to return after a three-year Test a

bsence. But Tait claims he has not re

ceived a telephone call and i

nsists he is not bothered about facing England. Despite clocking 100.1mph against Craig Kieswetter in the one-dayers, he said: “Ricky has never asked me to come back and play at Test level. It’s be

en all blown up by the media. “I’m not really bothered either way about the Ashes – I’m not concerned. It’s weird how it came up because I haven’t even thought about playing Test cric

ket again. “I got through three one-day games and then the next minute I’m being talked about as a Test cricketer once again. It’s a long way off for me.” But Tait’s Glamorgan coach Matthew Maynar

d believes his probable omission will be a big boost for England when they make the trip Down Under. “Australia have a strong bowling unit but someone of Shaun’s pace is an asset to any side,” said Maynard. “He kno

ws his body better than anyone and I’m sure if he knew he co

uld play in the longer form of the game, he would love to play for Australia in Test match cr

icket. “But it is a bonus for England that he probably won’t be playing against them.”
