Former England captain and critic of the Indian cricket team Michael Vaughan has predicted that Virat Kohli’s men will lose to Australia in all three tour formats starting Friday.
India got off to a bad start to the tour with a defeat of 66 times against Australia in the opener ODI, but more importantly it looks as one.
“The initial call … I think Australia will beat India on this tour in all formats conclusively,” Vaughan tweeted on Friday.
Vaughan disliked the “old school” mentality of playing five specialist bowlers that backfired.
“This Indian ODI team is too old-fashioned for me …. Just 5 bowling & batting options are not deep enough,” he tweeted further.
Friday’s ODI saw India needing more than four hours to complete their quota over and Vaughan wasn’t particularly entertained.
“India over rate is terrible … !!! Defensive body language … agility is my standard (shocking) … Bowling is normal !!!
“Aussies on the other hand are amazing … Long tour for India in my opinion.
