Usman Khawaja calls New Zealand series a new challenge

The left-handed batsman of the Australian Cricket Team Usman Khawaja has said that he has been going through a great form but his last 3 months will have nothing to do with the One-Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand as conditions are different.

Khawaja's amazing form had started with the Test Series against New Zealand in October as he scored back to back centuries. He hurt his hamstring in the second test but came back from injury and scored a century and a fifty in the Big Bash League (BBL).

That was followed by another century and a fifty against West Indies in test match and then he scored a century and a fifty in the BBL again. He finally earned an opportunity to represent Australia in T20 International against India in which he got out for 14 after a good start.

Now he has been included in the ODI series against New Zealand but sat on the bench in the first game. Captain Steven Smith had said that Khawaja may play a game to adjust in the New Zealand conditions as he will play the test series after the ODI series.

Khawaja does not have a very good ODI record but he said that he will try to apply the same approach that he has been applying in whole season. He said that his focus will be on doing the basics and will try to adjust in the conditions and score more and more runs.
