‘Beleaguered’ Hilfenhaus rebuilding action in desperate effort to save Oz Test spotSydney, Nov 16 : Under pressure fast bowler Ben Hilfenhaus is working hard on his bowling action in a desperate bid to uphold his spot in the Australia Test team that would face South Africa in the second Test at Adelaide following a below par performance in the Gabba Test.

Hilfenhaus has been one of the big victims of the worldwide Twenty20 preparation rolled out to some of the players as a lead-up to the showdown for the Test crown against South Africa, News. com. au reports.

While James Pattinson and Peter Siddle were able to play four Sheffield Shield games each for Victoria, Hilfenhaus had just one for Tasmania after returning from the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka then Champions League in South Africa, the paper added.

Hilfenhaus will work with bowling coach Ali de Winter to try and raise the point of delivery. They worked closely together in the past when de Winter, a former Tasmanian all-rounder, remodelled the action of his fellow Tasmanian after a lingering knee injury, it said.

Hilfenhaus was the least threatening of Australia's bowlers in Brisbane, claiming the last two wickets to fall in the first innings and then going wicket less in the second. (ANI)
