Annabel Sutherland, star Aussie women all-rounder, who recently got her first full year contract for Australia says she will work to push her limit with the ball. With 115 km/h she is already among the pool of Australia’s fast bowler but she thinks adding some extra speed would work in her favour.

Sutherland will use her first full pre-season as a professional to push along her quest to break through the 120 km/h barrier, which would put her in the top echelon of quicks in the women’s game, reported cricket.com.au.

Those extra kilometres make difference

The T20 World Cup winner believes that the extra kilometres in bowling speed always make a difference and batters find it difficult to play.

“There’s not a lot of players out there who can bowl with that sort of pace and it certainly challenges the batters a bit more. A couple of extra Ks would be nice,” cricket.com.au quoted Annabel Sutherland as saying.

“You see with players like Tayla Vlaeminck – she’s probably one of the quickest at the moment going around – how much those extra kilometres make a difference.

Fitness is always important for pacers

Speaking further she added that fitness plays a key role for sportsperson especially for pacers. The two-months long lockdown when everything has been halted the world cup winner Sutherland sweating in the gym to take her game forward,

“It comes with building my strength as a base in the gym, so it’s been nice over the last couple of months (of isolation) to have a solid period to work on my fitness,” concluded the star Aussie women Annabel Sutherland.
