Australian Cricket Team registered a resounding victory over India in the 3rd Test Match. The mighty Aussies won the match by 9 wickets and made a statement that they are not done yet. Skipper Steven Smith marshaled his troops and was spot on with his field placings. Steven Smith stood behind his bowlers & gave long spells to spinners which proved to be effective.
The Men in Blue have got a reality check and it won’t be wrong to say that their ultra-attacking approach back-fired on a spicy wicket. Head Coach Rahul Dravid & Skipper Rohit Sharma would be aware of the fact that they have to win the 4th Test match to qualify for the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final.

Harbhajan Singh on Steven Smith
Harbhajan Singh was having an interaction with Star Sports and was asked about Steven Smith.
“They played fantastic cricket throughout this Test match. Australia actually played cricket like Australia. It didn’t look like they had lost two matches previously. I feel the captain changed and their entire bad situation changed.” said Harbhajan Singh.

“The captaincy was brilliant. He used the spinners very well. Although India won the toss, Australia won every session. They put pressure on India from the first day with their bowling and picked up wickets one after the other.” he added.
Harbhajan Singh on Indian Batters
Harbhajan Singh was quite upset with the Indian batters’ batting approach in 1st innings.
“I didn’t like some of the Indian team’s shot selection that much either. They lost their wickets unnecessarily in an attempt to score a lot of runs on the first day. There Steve Smith understands how to get a grip on the game.” said Harbhajan Singh.
“They (Australia) batted very well in the first innings and then showed the intent while chasing today. They knew every run was important but they dominated. They showed that Australia used to play like this and they left a little imprint of the old Australia today.” he added.
