Gough Isn’t Finished Yet

Darren Gough’s prospects of competing in next year’s World Cup looked to be rising when he was selected for the series against Pakistan, until injury reared its ugly head again when he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left shin. However, with time running out in which to impress the selectors, Gough is still confident of a place in the Carribean.

Speaking to “Sky Sports News”, Gough said, “I never give in and I won’t give in now. I still believe I’m good enough.”

As a result of Gough’s injury, James Anderson and Jon Lewis now have a chance to prove their worth in the upcoming Champions Trophy. A good performance there could well spell the end of Gough’s career, a fact that is not lost on Gough, who knows that the VB Series after the Ashes will be his only chance to impress:

“It all depends on how the boys do in the ICC Champions Trophy in India. They are now in the box seat, so I just have to wait and see.The wickets have been good for me (in Australia) in the past, hopefully I will get the chance and hopefully then I can shine.”
