Australian left-arm pacer Dirk Nannes pledged to keep things simple as he looks forward to build his career.

 

The 32-year-old said that if he stayed fit, he was good enough to keep his place.

 

"That's all I'm going to aim to do - keep fit," he said after claiming one for 20 in seven overs.

 

"When I'm fit, I'm bowling well, and when I'm bowling well then I'm confident I can do really well."

 

The words and the way he used them were not expected from a debutant, although Nannes is not any average rookie.

 

Though he made his first-class debut in his 30s but only three months ago he was playing for Holland at the World Twenty20.

 

"It's been a pretty exciting journey from not much of a cricket background to get here," he reflected after yesterday's game. "It was a pretty massive day for me making my debut for my country of birth.

 

"Hopefully I'll be able to play a lot more games for Australia and hopefully in other forms (of the game) as well."

 

The left-armer might get the chance to do that on Sunday when Australia play England in the first of two Twenty20s at Old Trafford.
