“The way Mitchell Johnson bowled in the one-dayers against India should make it very exciting”

Legendary India batsman Sachin Tendulkar has announced that he believes left-arm pace bowler Mitchell Johnson has the potential to become Australia’s hero in the upcoming Ashes series, which gets underway on November 21 in Brisbane.

Tendulkar’s comments come after he watched Johnson take seven wickets at a respectable average of 33.42 in the recently concluded seven-match ODI series against India.

“England will want to prove a point that they can go down under and do as well as the last time,” Tendulkar said. “Australia will want to bounce back and prove England are wrong. It’s going to be interesting, and the way Mitchell Johnson bowled in the one-dayers against India should make it very exciting.”
