Australia Great Ridicules India’s Ahmedabad Test Strategy

CricketAustralia Great Ridicules India's Ahmedabad Test Strategy

Srinagar: Australia great Ian Chappel has slammed Team India strategy during ongoing fourth Test match against Australia in Ahmedabad.

“One thing I can’t understand is India’s desire to come around the wicket the whole time to a left-hander. It just doesn’t make any sense to me. You speak to all the good left-handers that I’ve spoken to, and they say that right-arm over the wicket is the toughest guy to face. It’s okay every now and again for a bit of a change around the wicket,” Ian Chappell told ESPNcricinfo.

Chappell feels the ‘around the wicket strategy’ works well in England, but on pitches that are offered in India, it’s ridiculous.

“Maybe around the wicket works more in England. But in India, ridiculous, particularly to a player like Usman Khawaja, whose great strength is his onside, and we saw that today. Why would you angle the ball into his pads when that’s exactly what he wants? Khawaja looked at ease the whole time. India haven’t come up with a solution to Khawaja’s batting, and it’s really starting to hurt them,” Chappell added.
