IND vs AUS: Former coach Ravi Shastri made serious allegations on the team and counted the flaws
IND vs AUS: Former India coach Ravi Shastri has said that a lack of discipline has let Australia down in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India and advised the Aussie batsmen to go back to basics and take the lead in the series. Play with more patience in an attempt to make a comeback.
In the Border-Gavaskar Test series, which is considered very important for the final of the World Test Championship, Team India has kept a 2-0 lead in the series, performing tremendously so far. Now the eyes of the Indian team are set on the third Test match starting from March 1 in Indore. Meanwhile, former India coach Ravi Shastri has said that lack of discipline has let Australia down in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India and advised the Australian batsmen to go back to basics and try to bounce back in the series. Try to play with more patience.
In the new episode of The ICC Review, Ravi Shastri was asked where Australia has gone wrong so far. Shastri said that I think his planning is weak. Lack of confidence in your defence. The lack of planning and lack of discipline was unreal and Australia has paid a heavy price for it.
Ravi Shastri believes that Australia's batsmen should now stay at the crease during the remaining Test matches instead of taking an aggressive approach. He said- It is very important to go back to the basics. If you don't rely on your defences then you have no chance, because at that point you entertain thoughts of being free, more than you normally should.
He said Australia needed to avoid a 4-0 series whitewash to seal their place in the final of the ICC World Test Championship in London. The 60-year-old Shastri is aware that conditions in England will be vastly different from those faced by teams in India but believes winning the next two Tests on home soil will give his team a significant mental edge.
