Scott Boland has given his all in the recent ashes match between England and Australia. The outcome thereof has had many speechless as no one could have expected an outcome like this.
Before the game commenced Scott has admittedly been feeling a little foggy during lunch on boxing day. Luckily, his former coach was in the midst and encouraged him to run up his speed.
“He picked up that I was a bit tentative in my first two spells, He just wanted me to up my run-up speed, which is key for me when I’m playing well.”Scott Boland
It is amazing to know that Scott Boland was only told he would be playing in the third test on Christmas Eve and has taken the game to new heights.
Scott Boland Becomes Australia’s First Indigenous Cricket Role Model
Surely no one expected the game to take such a turn but it has and everyone cannot be happier with the outcome.
At this time, Australia has finally earned itself a role model with the fourth indigenous Australian player to play in the ashes.
It is significant to know that Scott Boland didn’t know about his indigenous roots until five years ago.
According to Scott, it has been his wish to be a role model for indigenous youngsters in Australia. On the same day, Cricket Australia’s Indigenous advisory chair Justin Mohamed said that young Indigenous Australians did not have enough cricketing heroes to look up to. That is, up until now.
Scott Receives The Johnny Mullagh Medal
When Scott received his Johnny Mullagh medal as the player of the match, he received a standing ovation as the medal surely carried immense weight in the cricket community.
Well, if you didn’t know, Johnny Mullagh was one of the standout stars in 1868 in Australia’s first cricket touring team to England.
This is surely one of the best times in Scott Boland’s career through performing in pure excellence on his debut.
