Dominica, Apr 26(ANI): Australian opener Ed Cowan has slammed critics for judging players merely on the basis of a scorecard.
"If you're in the Australian cricket team and you're not consistently getting big scores, of course you are going to be under pressure. You don't need to be a genius to work that out," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Cowan, as saying.
"The only disappointing aspect is I think you guys here on the ground would appreciate how hard batting has been through the series. Well, it's bloody hard work and you need to see the ball spitting and turning the way it is to appreciate that. If you're just judging people's form by looking at the scorecard, then you're not doing the game full justice," he added.
He, however, was disappointed about not being able to convert his half-century into a maiden Test ton for the third time in his seven-game career for Australia,
Cowan averages 29.83 from seven Tests, but said statistics don't reflect how tough it has been during the three matches in the Caribbean.
Australia will resume the fourth day on 6-200, attaining an overall lead of 310. (ANI)
