Former Indian cricket team opener Krishnamachari Srikkanth taunted Australia with the visitors losing 0-2 in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. India won the first two matches of the series comprehensively and with Australia losing the services of experienced campaigners such as Pat Cummins, David Warner and Josh Hazlewood due to various reasons, things are expected to be more difficult for Steve Smith and co. . Srikkanth jokingly urged the visitors. to “do something” and warned that if they fail to turn their campaign around, they may end up becoming a laughingstock.
“This is for the manager from Australia, ‘Do something, boss.’ There is a great expectation created around the series. I am speaking in English for your safety. Do something guys or you’ll be a ‘Potlam’, which means ‘Package’. They have already packed you, ”he said on his YouTube channel.
Steve Smith will lead the Australian Test team against India in the third Test match in Indore from March 1, as Pat Cummins will not return next week from Australia for family reasons.
Cummins had to fly back to Sydney after losing the second Test match, explaining in a statement that his mother “is ill and in hospice care”.
He was supposed to return home because there was a nine-day break between the second test match in New Delhi and the third test match in Indore.
“I have decided not to return to India at this time. I feel it is best to be here with my family. I appreciate the overwhelming support I have received from Cricket Australia and my teammates. Thank you for your understanding,” said Australian captain Pat Cummins and via cricket.com.au.
The absence of the 29-year-old pacer is the latest blow to the Australians’ hopes in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. Earlier, pacer Josh Hazlewood and starter David Warner returned home with injuries. Mitchell Starc will likely be their captain’s replacement and lead the attacking pace.
