Karachi: The entire cricket world is in the box due to Team India’s embarrassing loss to Australia. The ex-Pakistani cricketer is also surprised by the fall of Indian batsmen in Adelaide’s test.
The Indian team was fully 36 in their second round. Australia won the game by eight wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the four-game series.
Fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar said he couldn’t believe what he saw.
He said: “ It was definitely a nightmare for Kohli to see his whole squad being sacked for just 36 points. The attitude of the drummers was not positive. He had a very good chance of winning by gaining an advantage in the opening rounds.
Former Pakistan opener Mohsin Khan said: “I couldn’t believe it when I saw Australia beat again in the morning and it only needed 90 points.”
He said: “ I looked at ways out and to be honest there was nothing wrong on the pitch. I think the batsmen didn’t show any passion and they were in a double mindset of playing fast Australian bowlers.
Former captain Rashid Latif said the Pakistan team were also sacked for 59 and 53 against Australia in Sharjah in the same way.
Latif said: “ It happens when bowlers are playing on the right court all the time and the ball takes the edge of the bat and goes straight to the defenders of the field. I think that collapse happened because the Indian batsmen probably came into the trough with the mindset of dominating the bowlers.
Legendary drummer Javed Miandad described it as the worst day for Indian cricket. He said: “ To be honest it was very difficult to play a few balls, but I was surprised that no one was struggling. This team is not fit to be dismissed for 36 points.
