In spite of losing the first two tests, Indian team has set an aggressive tone to the on-going four match test series against Australia. And Australia is not expecting any kind of let-up from the Indian side. This is what the Australian wicket-keeper, Brad Haddin thinks ahead of the third test.
He also said that the Indians have shown their hand that they are going to be quite much aggressive.
He also said that the Australian middle and also the lower order can expect something more and that is cricket. Also he believes that India would again wind Mitchell Johnson up again to see how it goes.
The above words is perhaps a teasing meant for the Indian team who sledged Mitchell Johnson in the second test, after which Johnson produced a match-winning performance to take the game out of India’s hands in no time.
After being involved in a verbal spat with the Indian fielders, Johnson smacked a fiery knock of 88 runs off 93 balls in the first innings which was immediately followed by his fiery bowling when he bagged 4 of the Indian wickets to set them into a situation of despair. And such a performance eventually helped Australia to snatch a 2-0 lead in the test series.
Haddin did not stop here. He went on to criticize about the Indians complaining about the practice wicket too. He said that there was nothing much wrong about the practice pitches and it was kind of lame excuses made by the Indian batsmen.
Haddin also said that the Indians used it even after the day of the test and thus there can not be anything wrong with it. Haddin also said that even some of the Australian bowlers trained in those pitches after the game was over and there were nothing wrong in those pitches.
India complained about the practice pitches on the fourth day of the test. It was claimed that Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli were hurt while playing on those practice pitches and this caused unrest in the Indian bench to a considerable extent.
