The legendary Australian cricketer Allan Border has chosen his ideal squad to face India in the second Test in Delhi and has criticised the selection committee’s “very foolish” choice to
India completely destroyed Australia over the course of three days by dismissing them for 91 in the second innings, which took 32.3 overs. The total they achieved against India was their second-lowest ever.
He must have damaged himself or been dishonest, I reasoned. In reference to SEN 1170 Breakfast, Allan Border said: “I just couldn’t believe that Travis Head could be dropped at the last minute because he didn’t do well the previous time they were in Sri Lanka or India, or for any other reason.
“That could be the case, but you have the right to improve, and Travis Head is one of the people who has done just that during the summer.
The Fox Cricket pundit noted that the team’s plan and approach were problematic and that the players looked to be focused on India’s selective pitch alteration in the days leading up to the first Test in Nagpur.
“I think we overanalyzed some of the situations, worrying about all the little gremlins on the field and whether or not they had been changed. When you arrive, it is just as you expected. They overanalyzed the situation, chose the wrong team for the first game, and made the improper preparations.
David Warner needs to perform well in order to prevent the chance of losing it later in the series, according to Allan Border, who thinks he should be maintained in his place for the upcoming Test.
“We could (see Warner dropped this series). Given all that he has done for us, I hesitate to say that. Simply put, we need to see him leading the order more often.
In this Test game, you will still start him. However, you’re beginning to hint that David might now need to move on. That may happen very soon.
I err on the side of playing to our strengths, making use of our fast bowlers, concentrating on their batsmen, little tactical alterations, and playing with the three quicks.
In such lineup, which spinner should be dropped? posed the query, and Allan Border said, “The million-dollar question is that. Because Nathan Lyon has amassed sufficient goodwill over the years to be picked first, he must be chosen.
“Congratulations to Todd Murphy, a young man. It will be tough to exclude him, but I think our success will be mostly dependent on our three fast bowlers and one spinner.
Really put forth the effort in your field placements. Instead of trying to beat them with spin, which we have done for a very long time, we should bowl stump to stump and be relentless.
