“Stop moaning and start competing,” – Mark Taylor suggests that the Australian team concentrate on defeating India in the Test series.

"Stop moaning and start competing," - Mark Taylor suggests that the Australian team concentrate on defeating India in the Test series.

Former Australia captain Mark Taylor has urged his countrymen to quit whining about the fields and concentrate instead on playing their best for as long as possible to win the Cup. Notably, the argument over the available pitch has taken centre stage in the lead-up to the first Test between Australia and India.

An unfair wicket provided by rank turners from India would prevent Australia from winning, according to former Australian wicketkeeper star Ian Healy in January 2022. Given that the tourists declined to play a practise game prior to the four-match Test series, Steve Smith expressed his opinion by declaring that “practise games in India are useless.” The primary justification offered was that the practise match pitch typically differs from the official match pitch.

Mark Taylor offers his perspective on the Pitch saga.

“Australia needs to ignore that and remind itself that India will be playing there for the next four to five days. We need to go on more runs. That’s as straightforward as you can make it, “Taylor published a piece in his Sydney Morning Herald column.
Australia’s illustrious opener counselled them to put all their mistakes in the past and to give up trying to find an edge. Taylor counselled Pat Cummins’ team to have a positive attitude and play solid cricket. “You must continue to play the game mentally. The game can swiftly get away from you when it gets hot over there, Virat Kohli scores a few fours, and the crowd starts chanting “Taylor iterated concerningly for the Australians.

Australia lost their first innings after being bowled out for 177 runs when batting first in the Nagpur Test. Marnus Labuschagne had the highest total of 49 from 123 balls. While Ravichandran Ashwin ended up with three wickets for 42 runs, Ravindra Jadeja finished with a five-wicket haul for just 47 runs. Siraj and Shami, a speed team, both split a wicket to give the hosts the perfect start.

It would be intriguing to see how the sloppy Greens will respond to Day 1 in an effort to recover for the opening Test.
