Boland, who made his Test debut in Melbourne, took 18 wickets in three Ashes matches at an average of 9.55.
Asked about the change in playing Test and domestic matches, Boland commented, “Debuting after 10 years of first-class cricket, all my teammates texted me and congratulated me. The difference with first-class cricket is that it It’s a different game mentally. So, I need to freshen up in the next few days.”
