I admire Aussie aggression, says Sobers

Melbourne : Australian cricket team's on-field aggression may not impress Indian great Sunil Gavaskar but West Indies legend Garry Sobers says he is a huge fan of the World champions' attitude as it reflects their intense passion for the game.

``Australia has always played cricket like the West Indians. I always enjoyed playing in Australia because they are a team that tried to play the game attractive, tried to win — not at all costs — but tried to win,'' Sobers said.

Sobers said the Aussies should not be bothered about the criticism of their tough style of play as their on-field attitude was worth emulating.

``That is a great attitude to have. You learn when you play Australia, there is a toughness about the Australians,'' Sobers was quoted as saying in The Australian.

The former all-rounder said the game had become much bigger than what it used to be during his playing days and the players need to have hardened attitudes to cope with on-field pressures. — PTI
