Australian Cricket Team suffered massive defeats in the first 2 Test matches where they looked clueless against the spin duo of Ashwin-Jadeja. Former Indian Batter Kris Srikkanth took a dig at Australian players for not showing no fight at all. Kris Srikanth also mentioned that there is a lot of buzz around the series.
The Aussies lost both Test matches within 3 days which is unacceptable in modern cricket. It looked as if the mighty Aussies were not prepared for the steep challenge. The visitors had lost the last Test Series during Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21 and since then they have been on a roll.

Kris Srikkanth on Australia
Kris Srikkanth was seen speaking on his YouTube channel and made remarks on Australian Cricket Team.
“This is to the Australia manager, ‘Do something boss’. There is a big hype created around the series. I am talking in English for your safety. Do something guys or else you guys will be a ‘Potlam’, which means ‘Packet’. You have already been packeted,” said Kris Srikkanth.

Concerns for Australia
Since Pat Cummins is not available for the 3rd Test match, there would be extra responsibility on the shoulders of the left-arm speedster Mitchell Starc. It looks unlikely that Australia will play 3 spinners as the Indore pitch is a bit batting-friendly playing 3 spinners can backfire. Australian selectors should include Scott Boland as the pacer showed immense control in the opening Test match.
All eyes would be on the skipper Steven Smith (*for the 3rd Test match), the right-handed batter has to play a long & effective inning as the rest of the middle order is pretty much inexperienced. We witnessed how Australia lost 9 wickets for 52 runs in a solitary session of the 2nd Test Match. The visitors need to grind the bowlers and focus on rotating the strike rather than going berserk.
