Tector, 22, has been an in-form batsman for Ireland in his white-ball matches against India and New Zealand, scoring two centuries and seven half-centuries and two half-centuries in his last 11 ODIs. With the last six T20Is coming up from South Africa and Afghanistan, Tector would be hoping for more performances with the bat.
“It’s been a mixed bag in terms of results, but the way we’ve been playing is definitely improving – I think that’s the main advantage of the summer so far. The brand of cricket we’ve been playing so far. That means sometimes we get out for a low score, but that’s what you see with most international teams.”
“I think you must admit that if you’re willing to get those big scores, and thankfully we’re seeing more and more of that, we’re looking to build on that, especially a As a batting unit going into the T20 World Cup. In October,” Tector said ahead of the two T20Is against South Africa.
Tector further elaborated on the confidence and fearless approach instilled in the Ireland T20I team by the coaching staff. “I think it’s a fair assessment – I think we’ve shown that when we stand up for these teams, we’re able to jolt with them, and that’s what it feels like within the group.” “
“We have a good team behind us to help us move in this direction – Henrik (Malan, head coach), EG (Ryan Eaglesson) and Wills (Gary Wilson) as specialist coaches to help us through our T20 game. Inspired to think more about it.”
“Believe that we can beat these big teams, and not to panic with every team we play with. We go out there and want to win, we expect to win, and I think it It’s been a bit disappointing as of summer we’ve come so close at times.”
“The flip side of that is we know we’re not very far away, and we know we have better cricket too, which is so exciting. I think the ‘no fear’ mentality is important – not just the bat. With but also with the ball, and we’ve done that to a certain extent this summer, which is enough to give the team the confidence that we can beat these big teams. It’s definitely something that we’re looking forward to this summer. Want to bring in the week. Bristol.”
Asked whether Ireland has been a changed outfit since they played against the Proteas last year, Tector commented, “It’s probably not different personnel wise, but it’s definitely different. How we’re trying to play the game and trying to create. More clarity on what we’re trying to achieve. It’s not just about this week, however, it’s about the World Cup in October It’s about moving on.”
In addition to international duties, Tector will participate in the opening of The 6ixty – a T10 franchise tournament in the Caribbean from 24–28 August for the Barbados Royals, and from 31 August to 30 September in the Caribbean Premier League. “I’m mostly looking forward to playing with some great players in a different environment and in different conditions – and it will be a valuable experience to gain before the World Cup.”
“While this is a wonderful opportunity for me to improve my game, I think the more Irish players that can join these leagues, the better, because it is only to our advantage to learn in those different environments. To learn from other players and other coaches will be very beneficial as it will allow us to bring the knowledge back to the Irish squad going forward,” Tector concluded.
