It has been quite a tough day for the Australian fast bowlers at Sydney. They have been completely outplayed by the Indian batsmen, who went on to put a massive total on the board. A lot of analysts and critic masters went down hard at the Australian bowling unit and the skipper. Meanwhile, the bowling coach David Saker backs his boys.
During the first couple of days in the Sydney Test match, Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant made a mockery of Australian bowling. They batted their ways to bring Daddy centuries to their name and put India on the driver seat.
The bowling coach furtherly quoted that it was one of those days, where they failed to execute their plans. He went to say adding that there are no differences in the team, as few analysts termed.
Plans aren’t executed well – David Saker
David Saker also admitted that they have been completely outplayed by the Indian batsmen in the Sydney Test. And also, he added that they will be working hard to make things happen in the upcoming games for Australia under Tim Paine captaincy.
“We always have discussions post game but in terms of (people) being on a different page, no. We know all the time, I think we’re pretty clear on what we’re trying to do. Yesterday afternoon – and to be fair probably the first hour in the morning then the first hour after lunch – we got it slightly wrong. It can sometimes look like (people are on different pages) but we know what we’re trying to do,” David Saker quoted.
”The pitch here and the pitch in Melbourne didn’t make us bowl as badly as we probably we have in this Test. We’ve just been outplayed. Both teams have had similar conditions. But from me, who also loves watching Test cricket, I’m sure guys would like to see a bit more pace and bounce in Australia, something we’ve probably become accustomed to in Australia. But it is what it is.
It seems like the Australian unit is pretty disappointed with the show by the bowlers on Sydney Test. They have managed to pick only 7 wickets of India after conceding 622 runs in the first Innings of the game.
In reply to India’s 622, Australian batsmen were successful in walking back to the pavilion without losing a wicket. All in all, an intriguing day is ahead with Indian bowlers having their task cut out.
