Former India batter Sanjay Manjrekar feels that the Indian workforce misplaced the third Test of the continuing Border-Gavaskar Trophy in opposition to Australia because it was within the hangover of its dominance within the collection by then. It is value noting that the Indian workforce outplayed the company within the first two Tests of the four-match collection. The Rohit Sharma-led facet gained the primary sport by an innings and 132 runs in Nagpur earlier than it registered a 6-wicket victory in New Delhi. However, Australia bounced again within the third sport and defeated India by 9 wickets in Indore.
“I got the impression that India was carrying the hangover of the dominance that they had in the series so far. They won the toss and batted first for the first time,” mentioned Sanjay Manjrekar on Star Sports.
In the primary two video games, Australia skipper Pat Cummins gained the toss and opted to bat first. Rohit Sharma’s luck noticed a change within the third sport when the tossed coin landed in his favour. The Indian skipper determined to bat first in opposition to Australia, who was then led by Steve Smith in Cummins’ absence.
Manjrekar feels that India did not plan their first innings correctly and that price them the match.
“So immediately the onus was on them to call the shots in the game and I thought they were just trying to dominate a bit too early and didn’t suss the pitch out. So too many attacking shots under the assumption that they knew the pitch and that is where I guess where India faltered”, he additional added.
India had been bundled out for 109 runs of their first innings earlier than Australia scored 197 runs and took an 88-run first innings lead. In their second innings, the hosts had been bowled out for 163 runs. The Smith-led facet comfortably chased down the goal with 9 wickets in hand.
