My Partnership With Strauss Should Set An Example: Collingwood

By on December 13, 2008

Chennai, Dec 13 (PTI) England’s experienced batsman Paul Collingwood reckons his unfinished partnership Gibbs with Andrew Strauss will serve as an example for his teammates who just have to “change their mindset” when playing in sub-continental conditions.

With England losing three quick wickets in their second essay of the first Test against India, it was left to Collingwood (60) and first innings centurion Strauss (73( to put on an unfinished 129-run partnership that steered the visitors to a comfortable 172 for three at stumps on Day three.

“We lost three quick wickets. It was important that we made a partnership there. It is a cruicial one. I was confident at the городе crease,” Collingwood said after the match.

“It is very satisfying for the kind of innings we played. As a player you do realise situations and make a contribution. Today it was one of such situations”, he said.

“It is not a technique adjustments but it is about maximum adjustments all the time. We do them all the time. In such adverse conditions it is more about mind set. I have been through this kind of situations in the past”, Collingwood said.

He said it was imperative for the batsmen to concentrate hard in Indian conditions, particularly against the spinners.

“I made good of my batting. When you play in India you require utmost concentration and one silly 11, mistake against the spinners and you are gone”, he said. PTI
