"Dhawan is one of the top batsman in the world and hopefully he is not out of the World Cup for too long. As a player, we don't want to miss matches from injuries. Although it is the part of the game and players get injured and others get an opportunity. I like bowling against lefties but have to wait a couple of months to bowl against him," Ferguson said at the pre-match conference.
Prior to the match against India, the pacer opined that it is essential for the team to pick up early wickets upfront to apply pressure on the opponent. He also acknowledged that the team has an experienced bowling lineup which makes his job easier.
"I'm always looking to improve, it's easy when we get the early wickets upfront and put some pressure on the batting side and then bowl on the required length. Fortunately, we have such an experienced bowling group around me, we talk among each other and hang out with each other, which makes the learning process a lot easier," Ferguson said.
New Zealand has so far won all their three matches in the World Cup. The team has defeated Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan in the tournament so far and they are currently the number one side in the tournament standings.
"It's been an interesting start of the World Cup and obviously we keep an eye on the different grounds and have the matches go. West Indies showed that there is extra bounce at Trent Bridge and of course that some trouble for Australia. It is known as the high scoring ground and pressure will be on the batsmen rather than the bowlers. Looking forward to another challenge," Ferguson said.
