Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi liked how Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane and co. won the second Test quelling the critics who predicted a whitewash in the absence of Virat Kohli, in the ongoing four-match Test series..
Bedi feels the odds are with India to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as he called the Australia batting average in the ongoing series. But it doesn't mean they get casual with their approach after a win at MCG.
“Indians make it 1-All to silence the 4-0 OZ cry... Nice to remain calm as @ajinkyarahane88 & deliver. There were a couple of hiccups on way to 8 wkts triumph... But all’s well that ends well... This OZ batting is pretty average - read mediocre - so Indians can win the series,” he tweeted.
But the legendary spinner doesn't want India to float on cloud nine after the win. He also mentioned that the 36-all out in the first Test was 'freakish'. “36 all out was terribly ‘freakish’ but an 8wkt win is not...I hope Indians can forget both... One as a nightmare & the other as nothing to float on cloud nine,” he said.
Bedi wants India to be focused on the upcoming two Tests to take down the Aussies. “Still 2 more Tests to go..& plenty of work to do..stay calm Fellas as your Capt @ajinkyarahane88 & ‘think’ how to outwit OZ,” Bedi added.
The third Test of the series will be played in SCG, Sydney from January 7, 2021, onwards.
