Sydney: Australia’s captain Tim Paine says that India and Australia are going so far in a friendly atmosphere which is surprising but they feel that the atmosphere is getting a bit hot now and there will be an explosion in the next few days.
Whenever there has been a series between India and Australia before this, the atmosphere between the two sides has been warm in it. But this time, two Tests have been played in a friendly atmosphere so far. But due to the latest ban in Brisbane, Team India refused to go there and demanded to play the fourth Test in Sydney only in the event of such a situation. Australian batsman Matthew Wade and bowler Nathan Lyon, however, denied the Indian team’s assertion that it was not in favor of playing two consecutive Tests at the Sydney ground.
On the eve of the third Test, Penn said on Wednesday, “It is surprising that this series has been going on in a friendly atmosphere so far.” I think this is happening because both the teams may be happy with the return of Test cricket after a long gap. There is no doubt that the two teams respect each other. “
He said, “Both teams are competitive. But now the atmosphere is getting slightly warmer and there may be an explosion during the third test. I think some people can start it. However, it has to be seen how the situation is. ”
On the one hand, where India does not want to go to Brisbane due to the ban, on the other hand the Australian team wants to play the fourth Test in the Gabba ground. The main reason for this is that the Kangaroo team has not lost a single Test match in this field since 1988. Meanwhile, Cricket Australia had said that no formal information has come from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about not playing in Brisbane.
Penn said, “I wouldn’t say we’re disappointed. There is just a little uncertainty when you hear such news, especially from India which has dominance in world cricket. We are quite clear for this test match. We know the protocol. “
