The Australian team completed a victory in the third Test in Indore after outclassing their opponents in all aspects of the game. Former Australian captain Ian Chappell lamented on the turning track prepared for the Indore Test, reminding India of their last two series victories against Australia.
“That was ridiculous (on dropping Head in Nagpur Test). It was a non-selection stupidity that was. At least the Australians have seen the error in their ways. India need to see the error in their ways. Talking about trying to prepare pitches that suit India. Have India forgotten that they won the last two Test series in Australia? What the hell the administrators, players, coaches, anybody outside the curator (were doing?). What the hell are they having an input into the pitch for?” Chappell told ESPNCricinfo.
The key to it in my opinion was bowling India out cheaply in the first innings: Chappell
“The key to it in my opinion was bowling India out cheaply in the first innings. Once they did that, they got themselves a chance to a decent lead. It wasn’t a huge lead but on this pitch a pretty useful one. And then in the second innings only having to chase a low score,” he added.
