Rahul Dravid sat in the corner of the changing room balcony gnawing his nails as Mitchell Marsh and Travis Head handed India a setback that they would like to bury before they arrived in Chennai for the decider. India’s top order was exposed by Australia for the second straight game as they were bowled out for 117, particularly by the left-armers.
Speaking afterwards, Rohit resisted reading too much into it, at least in public, instead stating that “right-armers have upset us too, but nobody talks about it” to downplay the conflicts. Yet, a pattern is unquestionably developing, which may have distracted Dravid from his thoughts, especially given that they will be facing similar bowlers in the World Cup later this year.
