The Test series between India and Australia starts on December 1 in Adelaide. Before the Test series, there were two three-day practice matches between India and Australia. In the second practice match, Team India captain Ajinkya Rahane decided to bat first after winning the toss. Rahane’s decision proved to be wrong and the team’s score was 12– at one point. From here, fast bowler Jaspreet Bumrah took the half century and the score came close to 200. During this innings, the Australia A bowlers bowled brilliantly and destroyed India’s top order. Former Kangaroo spinner Brad Hogg criticized the Indian batsman for his performance. Former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer had a lot of fun doing this.
In the first innings, India’s top-order batsmen Mayank Agrawal (02), Hanuma Vihari (1), skipper Ajinkya Rahane (0) and Habshabh Pant (05) were disappointed. Apart from this, Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agrawal scored 400 runs. “India’s top-order batsmen need to know where their off-stump is, they need to learn to drop a good length ball and follow the ball playing off-stump. It has to be ignored,” said the veteran Australian. Wasim Jaffer stopped his speech with a funny remark.

Replying to this tweet, Wasim Jaffer wrote, “Australia need to know what their top order is.” I want to tell you that Jaffer wrote this because the Kangaroo team had to deal with injuries for some time. Is struggling with the problem. Team opener David Warner and young batsman Will Pukowski have been ruled out of the first game against India in Adelaide due to injuries. In this way, Jaffar targeted the top order of the kangaroo team.
