AUSTRALIA SHOULD APPOINT BISEN SING BEDI OR SOMEONE LIKE HIM THEIR SPIN COACH FOR A PERIOD OF 5 YEARS.
OR
THEY SHOULD SEND VERY YOUNG SPINNERS TO NCA TO LEARN HOW TO SPIN THE BALL.
THIS HAS TWO ADVANTAGES
A] THEY WILL LEARN HOW TO SPIN THE BALL AND
B} WILL ALSO LEARN OUR DESI HINDI SLANGS,

Desperate Australia contemplating changes for third Test

Australian think tank has made some big blunder on this tour so far. First they did when they asked Mitchel Starc to bowl the Round wicket in First Test whereas his strength is Swing, when he started bowling Round the he lost his Swing and didn’t get revers swing going either. Then They dropped him. 2nd mistake they did was to drop LYON. And lastly they messed up with their batting order. All these mistakes together made the difference. For me Australian needs to reshuffle their batting order and play on their strength that is fast bowling. To me Best Australian eleven for the remaining Test is: 1.      David Warner 2. Shane Watson 3. Ed Cowan 4. Michael Clark. 5. Usman Khawaja 6. Mathew Wade 7. Glenn Maxwell /Moises Henriques 8. James Pattinson 9. Mitechell Johnson/ Mitchell Starc 10. Peter Siddle 11. Nathan Lyon Australia should play to their strength i.e fast bowling and don’t fall pray of playing 2-3 spinners as their spinners are not good enough and play positive cricket as they have done all the time. Watson and Warner at the TOP can lift the spirit with one big partnership and can change the Australian fortune because both are aggressive and score fast.

Absurd.....

I personally feel that it is wrong to judge a team on the basis of its performances when the odds are heavily stacked against them.
The pitches for this series so far were prepared in such a way that the downfall of the opposition is made certain even before first ball is bowled. What is the point in praising the Indian team when the pitch on which the matches were played cannot be called fair by no means??

How did the English batsmen struggle against the likes of Saqlain, Murali and Warne even on English pitches?? Why couldn't any of the Indian bowlers make a mark except on one or two occassions, where as the above said bowlers consistently did well??
The answer is really simple. Those wickets are good sporting strips...where there is something for every one.... pace/spin/medium/swing...and well-equipped batsmen would flourish. But sadly, that is not the case in India....what a shame...!!!

Australia has never been so weak before. They have lost 3 consecutive Ashes(2 at home), twice thrashed by South Africa at home in the last 4 years. They do not have batsmen who can play spin and they do not have spinners who can take wickets on Indian turning wickets.
