India vs Australia: O'Keefe was nervous at Pune, reveals coach Sridharan Sriram

Australia's spin bowling coach Sridharan Sriram reveales O'Keefe was nervous at Pune. He revealed how left-arm orthodox spinner Steve O'Keefe changed his approach during lunch break on the second day of the first cricket Test against India at Pune. Sriram saidf, "During the break I knew O'Keefe was a little disturbed. He said I think I need to have a bowl with you in the centre. "He said that O'keefe was a little nervous to start because he was in his comfort zone and trying to bowl as he would do in Australia. But, I said what do you think you need on this wicket?' and he said 'I need to go a little bit rounder and quicker and I just said to him to go for it," he added. O'Keefe's figures are the second best by a visiting bowler in India, behind Ian Botham's 13/108 in Bombay 37 years ago. It was the fifth-cheapest 12-wicket haul in Test cricket. Sriram also explained the importance of adapting oneself according to the given situation. "In India there is no one-stop solution, so you have just got to adapt on the go. You have got to see what works for you on that day. And I think O'Keefe was well prepared.
