Alex Hales said ( about Usman Khawaja ) : "Usman and I are different players - and I think that's important for an opening pair. It means bowlers need to bowl at different lengths and different areas, and [we] score at a different tempo. On top of all that, I think the right hand/left-hand combination worked really well. Usman is also very calm guy too, a very calm influence, and that's very important in T20," External link

We saw glimpses of it, and dribs and drabs, but not the consistently good player I thought he could have been for Australia,” External link

Usman Khawaja told : "I don’t know. I just think that in Sydney also we had a game we probably should have won, could have won. Our bowlers couldn’t finish it off unfortunately and the same thing happened in Gabba. I thought we had enough runs to defend but if a team chases that many runs on the final day, it doesn’t matter where it is, they deserve to win.

Usman Khawaja said : "When we arrived here this morning it reminded me of playing in India. It was just hard to breathe, there was a lot of smoke. I was only out there for about five overs but it just got stuck in your throat. I was actually surprised the bowlers were bowling for that long, I thought they would have taken out of it. It was bad but it wasn't unplayable," External link

But for me, it’s not about concentrating about that. “If I’m not scoring runs for Queensland, if I’m not helping them win cricket games – the rest won’t happen” External link

Alex Hales said ( about Usman Khawaja ) : "Usman and I are different players - and I think that's important for an opening pair. It means bowlers need to bowl at different lengths and different areas, and [we] score at a different tempo. On top of all that, I think the right hand/left-hand combination worked really well. Usman is also very calm guy too, a very calm influence, and that's very important in T20," External link

We saw glimpses of it, and dribs and drabs, but not the consistently good player I thought he could have been for Australia,” External link

Mike Whitney said ( about Usman Khawaja ) : "We just still haven't seen the best of Usman.

[but] the clock is ticking. That's the problem. He has had a couple of little injuries with his knees but again I would like to see him come out and do the business. He is just such a wonderful player" External link
