IND VS AUS: India will lose all three series in Australia, predicts Michael Vaughan
Sydney: After the Sydney ODI, former England captain Michael Vaughan has predicted that Team India will lose all three series in Australia. The start of India’s tour of Australia was very bad. In the Sydney ODI, the Indian team was defeated by the hosts by 66 runs. The Indian team was a complete flop on the issue of fielding, bowling. Also, he saw the lack of an all-rounder, which is set to happen in the next two ODIs as well.
After this performance of India, former England captain and staunch critic of the Indian cricket team Michael Vaughan has made a big prediction about the whole tour. He said – Team India will lose badly and India’s strategy is old. He tweeted on Friday, ‘I think Australia will beat India badly in all formats on this tour. ‘
Vaughan does not like the old mindset of the strategy of feeding five specialist bowlers which have been very bad for the Indian team. He said, ‘Indian ODI team seems to me to be an old strategy. Only five bowling options and batting are not so deep. ‘
It took India more than four hours to put its quota over and Vaughan was not happy with it. He wrote, ‘India’s over rate is very bad. Gesture defensive. Fielding too shocking (bad). Bowling general. ‘He wrote,’ On the other hand the Australian players were fantastic. ‘The second ODI of the series will be on Sunday.
Team India does not have an all-rounder
Indian selectors have picked just one all-rounder for the ODI series. Hardik Pandya is not fit for bowling and only Ravindra Jadeja is playing as an all-rounder. This is the reason that Virat Kohli had to hit the ground with just five bowlers. The team suffered because of this in the Sydney ODI. Virat Kohli’s five bowlers proved to be expensive.
Australia put up a huge score of 374 runs. After the defeat, captain Virat Kohli himself also talked about being the same all-rounder and he even said that he does not have an all-rounder like Australia.
