Matthew Hayden On IND vs AUS: The Indian team defeated Australia by 6 wickets in the Delhi Test. With this, Team India has gone ahead 2-0 in the 4 Test series. At the same time, in this match, the Australian batsmen were easily dismissed against the Indian spinners. Especially, the Australian batting looked helpless in front of the bowling of Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. In the first session of the third day of the Delhi Test, 9 Australian batsmen could add just 52 runs. In this way, the Indian team got a target of 115 runs to win. Team India won the match by scoring 118 runs for 4 wickets.
‘Playing the sweep shot is not a bad option, but…’
In fact, in the second Test match against India, most of Australia’s batsmen lost their wickets in an attempt to play sweep shots against the spinners. Now former Australian veteran Matthew Hayden looked very unhappy with this performance of the batsmen. After Allan Border and Mark Waugh, Matthew Hayden has vented his anger. Former Australian great Matthew Hayden said that playing the sweep shot against spin bowling on such pitches is not a bad option, but you should know how to play … the way Australian batsmen tried to sweep against spin bowlers. Lost my wicket, it was not right.
‘To play sweep you have to come in line with the ball’
Matthew Hayden said that to play sweep against spin bowlers on this type of wicket, you have to come in the line of the ball, not go away from the ball. He said that the way Australian batsmen lost their wickets against the Indian spin bowlers was disappointing. In fact, after the end of the second day’s play, the Australian team was in a strong position by scoring 61 runs on 1 wicket, but on the third day, the entire team returned to the pavilion after adding 52 runs in just 92 minutes.
