Greg Chappell encourages Australia to not view the India trip as a “sideshow” because “there is red-hot fury and embarrassment among our fans”



According to former Australia captain Greg Chappell, the team’s first two Test losses in India have left the nation’s supporters furious, perplexed, and ashamed.

After falling behind 2-0 in their four-match Test series against India, Australia has now lost the Border-Gavaskar Trophy four times in a row. Australia lost both games in the span of three days, with India mercilessly exposing Australia’s hitters’ deficiencies against spin bowling. Although the second day of the second Test was a competitive match, the Australian batters meekly gave up in the third, and former captain Greg Chappell claims that the performance has disappointed the home crowd.

According to Chappell, Australian cricket as a whole has to start ranking India trips on par with or even higher than the Ashes. The fact that our squad has displayed such little grit thus far in the series has enraged the Australian public, and rightfully so. The sight of a batsman being out on the first ball while doing the reverse sweep and acting like this series is not important for the future pisses off. Australian cricket needs to understand that taking on India is not a sideshow but rather the main event, equal to or perhaps greater than The Ashes, he said.

Australia was bowled for 177 and 91 in its two innings, contributing to India’s 400-run victory in the first Test, which it lost by an innings and 132 runs. In the first two days of the second Test, they performed well, reaching 263 runs in the first innings and nearly gaining a commanding lead before being bowled for 113 runs on Day 3. India secured a 6-0 victory and a commanding 2-0 lead as a result. Since 2015, Australia has not been able to defeat India in a Test series, either at home or abroad.

African footballers are used to playing on the world’s football fields with only a handful of elite players who play in the best European leagues. What about the other lesser known players? They are trying to break through by taking side roads.

the results obtained by Morocco will have repercussions and will allow Africa to reap important gains in line with its footballing power.

I think that every African country should take an example from Morocco in the last world cup we saw Morocco go very far in the Competition.

Today we are going to speak mainly about Congo I think that they must begin by investing in the youth infrastructure construction of center there is so much talent in this country it is a pity that there is only one stadium in the capital of Kinshasa as a sports adviser all its young people have a dream is to come to play in Europe but before extinguishing this dream I think that the base must be solid a competition of age must be created for the young people so that it can evolve well from this moment there we will be able to consider to make the necessary (sports adviser, player’s agent) to go and see his young players in order to find the best talents to pass the next step
