IND vs AUS, Indore Test: In the Nagpur and Delhi Tests, many batsmen of the Australian team looked helpless in front of the Indian spinners. This was the reason that the Indian team won the first two matches to take a 2-0 lead in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy. Now the matter has become different in the Indore test. Kangaroo spinners dominated here and the entire Indian team was reduced to 109 runs after playing just 33.2 overs on the first day. Some Australian fans reached with brooms to watch this test match. One has to read the news further to know what was his message and why he did it.
What was the message of the fans?
In fact, in the Delhi Test and before that in Nagpur, many Australian batsmen lost their wickets trying to play sweep shots. Many former Kangaroo cricketers also targeted the batsmen regarding this issue. On this issue, a group of Australian fans reached the Holkar Stadium with a broom in a unique way to advise the Australian batsmen not to play sweep shots. People in the group sent a message to the Australian batsmen not to lose their wickets trying to play “sweep” shots against the Indian spinners in this crucial match being played in the cleanest city in India.
Australia’s fans also carried brooms with placards bearing a “cross” on the broom’s insignia and “No Sweeping” printed below it. Australian citizen Tom, who reached Indore to witness the third Test, also advised his country’s batsmen to play sweep shots thoughtfully. He said that, sweeping or reverse sweeping every other ball is not the right way of batting. Australian batsmen should focus more on playing their natural game.

Talking about this series, India defeated Australia by an innings and 132 runs in Nagpur and then by 6 wickets in Delhi. At present, Team India has an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series. India cannot lose the series from here. But in the Indore Test and after that in the last Test of the series which is to be held in Ahmedabad, the Indian team will have to win one of those matches at any cost. That is because India has not yet booked the ticket for the final of the World Test Championship. If he has to make a place in the final, then he will have to win one of these two test matches.
