Like Chris Woakes, he is one of Australia’s greatest batsmen.


Australia’s leading Test opener and Queensland captain Usman Khawaja has compared his domestic teammate Michael Neser to England’s aggressive all-rounder Chris Woakes, who had a stellar performance in the recent Ashes. Along with this, Neser is also making his mark with ball and bat in domestic cricket and is trying to make a comeback in the Australian Test team.

Right-handed all-rounder Neser recently scored a brilliant century in the second innings for his team Queensland in the second match of the Sheffield Shield, in which he scored 140 runs and played an important role in drawing the match. At one point, Queensland looked to be on the losing end as they were reduced to 91/5 in their second innings, 179 runs behind New South Wales’s first innings score. Neser first made a 200-run partnership with wicketkeeper Jimmy Pearson (106) and then added 72 runs with Jack Wildermuth (52 not out). In this way the team won.

Queensland captain Usman Khawaja praised Michael Neser.

Michael Neser’s bowling and batting reminded team captain Usman Khawaja of England all-rounder Chris Woakes. Woakes is also capable of contributing with both bat and ball. Khawaja believes that Neser, who has played two Tests for Australia, has similar potential. ESPNcricinfo quoted him as saying this.

Michael Neser has been incredible over the years, a lot of people see him as an amazing bowler, but he is also an all-rounder and bats at number one. 7 For us he has always been in the group of Australian cricket team for his bowling but I think the way he is performing with his batting, he can win you a lot of cricket matches. He has the ability like Woakes to do both, that’s really important. He is definitely contesting the elections.
Let us tell you that Michael Neser has very good statistics in first-class cricket. He has taken 351 wickets in 98 matches at an average of 23.67 and scored 3414 runs at an average of 29.17. He has five centuries and 15 half-centuries to his name.
