Matthew Hayden Reveals the Name of Indian Batsman who can Cause Trouble for Australia
Matthew Hayden, the former Australian opener, has named one batsman that has hurt the Australian team badly. Matthew Hayden was one of the lifeblood of Australia’s golden era when they were too hard for the opponent cricket team to beat on Aussie’s home ground. Though Australia has a better chance of beating India in the next four-game series, tourists are no pushovers even without Virat Kohli in the final three Tests.
Matthew Hayden has named Cheteshwar Pujara as the batsman, who may do a great deal of damage to Australia this time as he did the last time. The India made a history two years ago after winning its first test series in Australian soil by 2-1. Although, the entire Indian squad contributed to the victory at that time, big share of credit goes to Cheteshwar Pujara. Pujara had won the man of the series award. Aussies are ready to take revenge on India as the first Test in the four-match series is beginning on December 17.
Hayden depicts Pujara can be a strong pillar for India
In 2018, this right-handed batsman batted at number three and feasted on Australia’s esteemed bowling attack. He grounded the Aussies bowlers to dust. Pujara stayed like a strong pillar right from the first Test in Adelaide till the series ended. The Saurashtra batsman’s runs mounted to 521 runs at an average of 70. It was something that sadly the Aussie batsmen could not manage.
Matthew Hayden has joked that while the Australians love to drink coffee, they are making it sure to have plenty of caffeine to watch Cheteshwar Pujara bat. Test veteran, Hayden, admitted that in 2018 the right-handed batsman had wounded them to the full degree. While taking at the Star Sports’ show Game Plan, Hayden further added that while today is an era that admires the batsmen for their strike rate, Pujara, who has a low strike rate of sub 45, might give pain to the opposition.
