In the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy match, Australia is down 0-2 and former Indian cricket team opener Krishnamachari Srikkanth poked fun of the visitors. The first two games of the series were comfortably won by India, and with Australia without the services of seasoned opponents like Pat Cummins, David Warner, and Josh Hazlewood due to a number of reasons, it is expected that things would get harder for Steve Smith and company. Srikkanth urged the visitors to “do something” in a light-hearted manner and warned them against becoming a laughingstock if they weren’t able to effectively turn around their campaign.
“This is for Australia’s manager. Get moving, boss. I’m speaking in English for your safety. Take action, guys, or else
The third Test match between Australia and India will start on March 1 in Indore, despite Pat Cummins’ absence from Australia the next week due to family responsibilities.
Cummins had to take a flight back to Sydney after losing the second Test match, citing in a statement that his mother “is ailing and in hospice care.”
I’ve decided not to return to India at this time. I extend my sincere gratitude to Cricket Australia.
The 29-year-old pacer’s absence has further hurt the Australian team’s chances of winning the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. David Warner and Josh Hazlewood, two players who had been hurt before, left for home. Mitchell Starc, who will take over for his captain, will probably be in charge of the speed attack.
