The Australian Skipper Tim Paine blames India for their Gabba loss in the Fourth and final test match. READ MORE
Paine’s comments came in context with the final Test of the 2020/21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Gabba in Brisbane, which Australia lost by three wickets, and led India to seal the Test series 2-1, hence fortifying their spot in the ICC WTC final. Pant and Pujara starred in the decider as Pujara stood firmly playing 211 delivering keeping one side and allowed others to reduce the chase. Pujara made hard fought and unforgettable 56 off 211 while Pant’s valorous unbeaten 89 ushered India to a historic test and subsequently series win.
Paine openly stated that India team is exasperating and that the Australian team fell into that which distracted them in the final decider game.
“Part of the challenge of playing against India is they’re very good at niggling you and trying to distract you with stuff that doesn’t really matter and there were times in that series where we fell for that,” Paine told to news.com.au.
“The classic example was when they said they weren’t going to the Gabba so we didn’t know where we were going. They’re very good at creating these sideshows and we took our eye off the ball.” he added.
Twetting about Gabba ground is enough …Tim paine will have more pain…
