Australia they are currently in the West Indies and will travel to Bangladesh later to play ten T20Is while building for the T20 World Cup later this year.

The 28-year-old scored 200 runs in ten games, with a pass rate of 188.67 and two fifties. Sams’ seam bowling yielded 11 wickets in ten games at 23.72.

Daniel Sams, who contracted COVID-19 during the first half of IPL 2021 in India, has revealed that he has no regrets, although part of him wishes he had been there with Australia. But Sams said his relationship with his wife is important to him and that he wanted to contact her again after being apart for a few months. Thus, mental health forced him to withdraw from the West Indies and Bangladesh tours.
“I’m not sorry. Obviously, I thought, ‘I wish I was there,’ but in the end, I made the long-term decision that’s best for me. My relationship with Danii is the most important thing, and one of the biggest reasons I moved out was that I was able to reconnect with Danii because we had never been apart for so long. So it was definitely a priority, and so was my mental health, “he said. Sams said as quoted by Cricket.com.au.
I want to bat as high as possible: Daniel Sams
Daniel Sams said the Australian team is constantly looking for discussions on the finishing role. The cricketer, who was born in New South Wales, also raised his hand. Sams expressed his desire to bat as high as number seven.
‘There has been a lot of talk about the finishing roll and this is something I feel I could possibly do. There are a few players who are popular for the role, whether they have the all-rounders or more the batting style, but probably the number seven or six, who fulfill the role and of course can bowl as well. “I, I am I, want to bat as high as possible, but to be realistic for the Aussie team will probably bat seven times.” he added.
