“They’ve got to go back and plan how they’re going to defend the ball when they’re attacked, especially on the stumps. They’re probably looking for a turn and they’re missing the straight. They’d rather play the straight than try the other way around. More people get knocked out. They need to back them up. The skill set, whatever they have, has made them a lot of success in Australia and one bad game doesn’t make them a bad team,” said Karthik on Cricbuzz.

But the Indian team found a way to dig deep and beat the injury in the last BGT series. It will be a challenge for Australia and I believe in their character, they will dig deep and find the answer to the questions that the Indian bowlers are asking them,” he added.
