“Any time I have been asked to do…..” Former Australian Expressed His Desire To Save Australian Team In India

The Australian team is looking into big trouble in India because they are already behind in the Border-Gavaskar Series by 2-0, and important players return to Australia due to injury or family reasons. The magical web made by Indian spinner Ravindra Jadeja and Ravi Ashwin in both the test match visitors couldn’t understand and kneeled. And now it seemed they would also surrender in the third test match in Indore.

In the Delhi test, visitors were blown away in the typhoon of Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling in the second innings; hence, they lost that match on the third day in a row. The Australian batting strategy in the second was tragic because they lost half of the team on a sweep shot.

Looking at the poor conditions of the Australian team, former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has come forward to solve their team’s problems in India. In interaction with Sydney Morning Herald, he stated that he is always available for his nation.

“One hundred per cent, at any time of the day or night, it is given that myself — and I’m sure I speak for anyone I represent that would have that kind of influence — would 100 per cent be in. Any time I have been asked to do anything, I’ve always said yes at any time of day,” Hayden stated to Sydney Morning Herald.

Hayden was part of the Australian team when they won the test series in India. And in the 2001 series against India, he averages 110.00. Also, Hayden explained the key by which the Australian team can achieve the target in India.

“You can’t alienate them (former players). If you want the creme de la creme, the least you can do is respect them. There should be a system if you’re in the CA role; how do we get the intellectual property in our players? That’s the key,” former Australian legend Hayden explained.

Hayden further praised the Australian team’s coach and shared his experience playing in India. Also added that they were just after the Big Bash League, so it would not be easy for them to win against all-mighty Indians in their home.

“It’s impossible because a week before we came here, everyone was screaming bloody murder about their superstars not playing the Big Bash League – yet they’ve got a Test match nine days later. This is where I don’t envy the role of Andrew McDonald. He has to work out the priority in terms of his playing group, of which he has zero per cent control over two months because of IPL. Part of that tenure would be, ‘what do we want to win, fellas?’ Because if it’s India, we know what it takes to win there,” Hayden added in the last.
