Axar Patel created pressure on Australian batsmen: Jadeja
After this match, former India cricketer Ajay Jadeja said, ‘It is very difficult to tell when India bowling during the match, he said that India had put pressure on the Australian batsmen when Axar Patel was bowling. After the bowling of Axar Patel, Australia did not give India a chance to make a comeback in the entire innings.’
Indian bowlers looked helpless in front of Australian batsmen: Jadeja
Ajay Jadeja said Cameron Green’s scintillating 30-ball 61 gave a big relief to Australia’s batsmen in the first 10 overs itself. However, Umesh Yadav and Axar took wickets in the middle but Matthew Wade came and turned the entire match towards Australia. The strategy of the Indian team did not work in this match.
Jadeja further said, ‘It is very difficult to say when the Indian team fell behind in the second innings of the match. I think in the second innings the Australian batsmen completely dominated the Indian bowlers. I felt that Axar Patel bowled brilliantly as compared to the rest of the players.’
Ajay Jadeja said that I feel very bad about Rohit Sharma because whatever strategy he made in this match was all right but Australia had the answer to every question. Let us tell you that the bowlers of India were very disappointed in this match.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar conceded 52 runs in four overs while Harshal Patel conceded 49 runs in four overs. On the other hand, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal gave 42 runs in 3.2 overs. Together these three bowlers gave 143 runs.
