The 4-match Test series between India and Australia (India vs Australia 2020) is currently 1–1. Australia defeated India by 8 wickets in the first Test match in Adelaide. Team India defeated Australia by 8 wickets while answering in Melbourne. In both matches of the series, the bowlers of India and Australia have been the most affected so far, but there is a concern on both sides of the batting. Although Team India performed better in Melbourne, the condition of Australia is getting worse. Former veterans of the team are extremely upset and disappointed by the poor batting of Australian batsmen. Now a new figure has been revealed, which will embarrass the Australian team.
Australia has played 3 innings out of 4 innings of this series. In Adelaide’s second innings, he had to score only 90 runs. In such a situation, if you look at the remaining 3 innings, then the host team has touched the 200 mark just once. In the first innings of Adelaide, she was piled on 191, while in the first innings of Melbourne, 195 and only 200 runs could be scored in the second. With such poor batting, Australia has made the worst record of 133 years.
The worst performance in the house after 1887-88
Australian Channel Fox cricket According to the host team’s figure of runs per wicket in this series is very embarrassing and shocking. According to the report,
In this series, the Australian team has scored 21.50 runs per wicket. That is, for every 21.50 runs, the Australian team has lost one wicket. This is the worst performance of Australia in the last 133 years in any cricket season on home soil.
The last time in 1887–88, Australia scored 9.35 runs per wicket in the domestic cricket season. Since then, Australia has never had to fall so low.
Ponting put the class of Australian batsmen
Australian batsman and former captain Ricky Ponting were the most criticized for their poor batting. After the Melbourne Test, Ponting had said that the way the Australian team is batting slowly and making small scores, it is because of them that they are losing. Ponting also took a dig at his team and said that Ajinkya Rahane and Shubman Gill had put more pull shots in this series than the entire Australian team put together.
Another example of such a plight of Australian batting is found in this series. In both matches, it took only 2 fifties from the team. Both of them also engaged in the Adelaide Test. In Melbourne, not a single batsman of the team could touch the figure of 50, which was the first time for Australia in any Test in almost 3 decades.
