I can’t wait for the Australian Open tennis to commence in Melbourne on Monday and listen to Channel Seven commentators call: “Sir Andy double faults” or, “15-love to Andrew Murray, OBE.”
Did you know that in the 140-year history of Test cricket, not one batsman has been dismissed for 99 in a Sydney Test?
It sure was snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I mean the SCG Test against Pakistan in January 2010 which Australia won miraculously.
I have witnessed all Australia vs Pakistan Tests at the SCG since 1972-73. Two stand out in my memory for their unpredictable outcomes.
As Australia gets ready to tour India for a four Test series in February-March next year, they have to prepare well psychologically.
Thanks to masterly batting by skipper Virat Kohli and spinning all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin, India won the Test series against England 3-0 with the final Test starting in Chennai on 16th December.
