Aussie quick Morris eyeing Test debut vs India in Feb

NEW DELHI, Jan 21: Uncapped Australia pacer Lance Morris, fresh from being the season's leading wicket-taker in the Sheffield Shield, believes he has the "best chance" to make his debut in the opening Test against India in Nagpur on February 9.
The 24-year-old tearaway pacer, who has the ability to rack up deliveries at 150-plus kmph, has been included in Australia's 18-member squad for the first two Tests of the four-match marquee Border-Gavaskar series.
"I'm going to do everything I can to be as ready as possible," the West Australian was quoted saying by Fox Sports.
With Australia's quickest bowler Mitchell Starc unavailable for the opening Test of the series, Morris has a strong chance to wear the Baggy Green.
Morris has been Starc's understudy and was in Australia's Test squad during their recent series win over South Africa.
"If we're talking honestly, that's probably my best chance of playing over there. We'll see what happens," Morris said.
"It's my first overseas tour in a cricketing sense, so it will be a huge learning experience for me. I'm really excited to go away."
A raw teenager from Dunsborough, in Australia's west coast in the picturesque Margaret River region, nearly three hours from Perth, Morris was picked by Western Australia from where he made his first-class debut in 2020. He bagged 12 wickets from five games in his first season. Thereafter, he played every match of WA's drought-breaking Shield title-winning campaign last summer and had 20 scalps.
Morris has added 27 more wickets to his tally from five matches so far this season.
