CricketAustralia In The Middle Of A Muddle, Hazlewood & Warner Flies Back Home

There’s only one way to win a test match and it is by actually trying to win it. In white ball format a 15 overs dominance can certainly put you a lot ahead in the game. But in test cricket, the mindset is a bigger challenge not the scenario. Australia were defeated because of their mindset and attitude, India has very little to do with what happened to Australia, it was a sort of self destructive technique that they used to defend their game.

What is a bigger challenge now? All these facts and numbers are only deviations to a wandering mind. It’s absolutely well though out to regard Indian spinners as world class and show them all the respect the deserve but while you’re on field, a team can’t just forget to compete being in reverence.

Ravindra Jadeja is so accurate and we’ll versed in his ability, he would have been wondering himself what Matt Renshaw is doing there! Someone should ask him didn’t it felt like bowling to an U-14, you just pick your line and trust in the batter than he will miss once here or there.

Same was the case with Alex Carey, Australia expects from him 45 to 50 odd runs on a decent strike rate because you’re not going to last over 150 balls on that wicket. Axar Patel did it for India in the first innings from a similar sort of a position so Carey has surely disappointed the team. A duck and 7 runs for Australian wicketkeeper.

Australian batters has most let down to their bowlers. If they have a look around and find a motivation, they can find it in Nathon Lyon. The right arm spinner was unlucky in the first match, got only one wicket and bowled  tiring spells.

What a comeback he made! A fifer straightaway and dismissing likes of KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara in no big time. The team has been haunted by their own fear of failure, it has impacted their understanding of the game.

Clearly, sweep with a new ball can be effective but still not free of risk but on a dusty wicket with an old ball, never a good option. A loss in a worthy way to learn but still if we don’t see much needed improvement in the next match, Australia will certainly be a bad position and it will have affect on their next tours.

A bad unforgettable memory in India will push them on backfoot when they will be visiting Indian subcontinent for World Cup 2023.

Josh Hazlewood & David Warner Set To Fly Back

Josh Hazlewood is a big miss for the Australian team. He is a wicket taker who has expedite the fast bowling cartel. He certainly enjoys bowling against India.

David Warner will be no great loss given his current form which is going downhill. He has trying to play a different role which he is not accustomed to. Clearly, he is not 100 balls 35 runs guy but somehow he wants to play that role which has only brought problems to him as well as Australian team.

Josh Hazlewood was suffering from injury when he came to India. David Warner received a few blows by Shami and Siraj which fractured his forearm.
