Bailey says 'still under pressure' despite 'good performances' in first three Ashes Tests

Sydney, Dec 23 : Australian batsman George Bailey won't need the plane ticket he bought himself a month ago so he could be a spectator at the Boxing Day Test as he still remains a part of the national squad, eager to notch up another good performance.


According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Bailey is still trying to comprehend his rapid rise from one-day wonder to Ashes hero in a matter of weeks.

He said that a month ago he bought two flights over for dad and him to go and watch the Boxing Day Test and now he is going to be out there playing it.

Bailey headed straight to Melbourne following the washout of the Hurricanes' opening match against the Adelaide Strikers to prepare for his first Boxing Day in the baggy green, the report said.

However, after Ashes contributions that included a half-century and a furious 28-run assault on a single James Anderson over, he said the pressure remained despite Australia's unassailable 3-0 lead in the series, the report added.

Bailey, meanwhile, expressed surprise about the sudden retirement of England spinner Graeme Swann, the report further said.
