Australia’s best opening batsman Usman Khawaja has recently revealed that he is very disappointed with the long-running war between Israel and Hamas. Currently, Australia team is playing a three-match test series against Pakistan. According to Usman Khwaja, he is currently struggling a lot for inspiration.

Speaking on Fox Cricket, Usman Khawaja said, ‘I don’t do all this at all but this is something that has been troubling me for a long time. Before the Test series against Pakistan, I was playing Sheffield Shield cricket and I was not getting inspiration. I spoke to my wife Rachel and sports psychologist Brent Membrey and Cricket Australia and told them I was really struggling for motivation right now.

Let us tell you, Usman Khawaja had written on his shoes before the first Test match against Pakistan, ‘All people are equal.’ However, ICC had refused that Usman Khawaja cannot play in the first test wearing these shoes. Although Usman Khawaja participated in the first Test wearing the same shoes, he hid the message with transparent tape. Usman Khwaja gave a big statement regarding this.

Usman Khawaja further said, ‘When I see innocent children and people dying, videos like this impact me a lot. It is great to go out and play cricket but at the moment I am facing a lot of trouble. It’s affecting me a lot. I thought about it a lot and talked to many people but I am not able to forget it at all.

Usman Khawaja is fully ready for the third test

So far, two Test matches have been played between Australia and Pakistan and both the matches have been won by the hosts. Usman Khawaja has batted well for his team so far but now he desperately needs to make a big score in the third and final Test match.

Usman Khawaja will look to bat well in the third Test. This third Test will be David Warner’s last international Test match. He had announced long ago that he would retire from Test cricket after the Test series against Pakistan.
