Murphy, who has played six Tests for Australia, is gearing up to face Pakistan in a four-day tour match scheduled from December 6-9 in Canberra
Australian spinner Todd Murphy is eagerly anticipating the challenge of bowling to Pakistan's top-order batsmen in the upcoming three-match Test series.
As a member of the PM’s XI, Murphy is gearing up to face Pakistan in a four-day tour match scheduled from December 6-9 in Canberra.
"Bowling to Pakistan's top order batters would be a challenge," acknowledged Murphy.
"Babar Azam is a very good player, and Pakistan's top order boasts players with great class. I am not sure if Babar Azam is playing against PM XI, but it would be exciting to bowl against him. It's always great to get a chance to test yourself against a test-playing nation," he added.
Looking ahead to the upcoming three-match Test series against Pakistan, Murphy emphasized the significance of the opportunity, describing it as a great way to kick off the cricketing summer.
"It's always a great opportunity to play in front of family, friends, and fans. The atmosphere and support make it a special experience," he added.
Murphy also highlighted Nathan Lyon's valuable insights and expressed gratitude for the learning experience gained from playing alongside him.
"Nathan Lyon is a top-class player. He always provides a lot of wisdom, and playing alongside him is a great learning experience," he concluded.
