New Delhi: It has been marginally over 100 days that a genuinely limited, battered and injured course of action of youngsters did the extraordinary. The massive Gabbatoir, Australia's pride, a setting where their solidarity ran for 32 long years, was infiltrated by the Pants, Sundars, Natarajans, and Sirajs hailing from the hinterlands of India.
Everyone's consternation that the breachers of the Gabba will be the people who had nothing in name of contribution; who were never expressed simultaneously as Kohli and Pujara. After that essential and lifetime achievement of sorts by the Indians, Australian skipper Tim Paine has given excuses on Australia's loss at Gabba and attributed their loss to India's 'slide show'.
During the media interaction in the function of Chappell Foundation, Paine said, “Part of the challenge of playing against India is they’re very good at niggling you and trying to distract you with stuff that doesn’t really matter and there were times in that series where we fell for that.”
Then he added, “The classic example was when they said they weren’t going to the Gabba so we didn’t know where we were going. They’re very good at creating these slide shows and we took our eye off the ball.”
His statement revolves all-around in social media. Here are a few social media reactions:
