Sunil Gavaskar recalls iconic knock to explain India’s struggle on Indore’s turning turf

Former cricketers have been critical of the Indian cricket team after their nine-wicket loss to Australia in the third Test in Indore. Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden, who played 103 Tests for Australia, slammed the approach of India’s batters, stating that they appeared to be playing to save their spots in the team. India veteran Dinesh Karthik also joined in the criticism, pointing out that India’s top order has been underperforming in Tests and that their failures are being masked by the contributions of the lower order. Karthik also highlighted India’s struggles against spinners during the 2022 Bangladesh Test series.

With reports suggesting that another spinning track is waiting for India in the final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Ahmedabad, former India stalwart Sunil Gavaskar has offered two valuable tips to help the Indian batters combat the emboldened Australian spin attack at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium.
