Clarke hails Faulkner as Oz's new 'Michael Bevan' following third ODI 'heroics'
Australian captain Michael Clarke has reportedly hailed all-rounder James Faulkner as the team's 'new Michael Bevan' following his match-winning inning at the Gabba on Saturday in the second ODI against England on Friday.
Left with No. 11 Clint McKay for company and 57 runs still needed, Faulkner (69 not out) hit 12 from the final over and calmly closed out the match with three consecutive boundaries in the final over to leave England shattered and leading Australia to 301 at the loss of nine wickets and ruling the series 2-0.
However, News.com.au reports that although the 'Bevan' baton has passed from the legendary Michael Hussey to Faulkner, the young all-rounder has a very different game than Bevan.
The report mentioned that while Faulkner is a bowling all-rounder, Bevan was a part-time bowler at best even if he could send down handy left-arm unorthodox, adding that both of their batting styles are equally dissimilar.
