AUS vs IND: 'They Are About To Play Their Fourth Test Back To Back', Tim Paine Praised The Aussie Pacers
Prior to the ongoing Test series, Josh Hazlewood had said that they would do the same to the Indians this time. Unfortunately for them, their batting didn't come good in the first two Tests and they couldn't keep the Indians on the field for long.
But they did manage to stretch the Indians in the third Test match while also giving themselves enough time to win the Test.
However, the Indians held on, forcing the Australians to bowl 131 overs. It meant that while they found themselves get stretched, they also exhausted the Australian bowlers who have just three days to recover their bodies.
The problem faced by the Aussie bowlers was not lost on the skipper Tim Paine.
The Baggy Greens captain conceded that though the turnaround period has been short and challenging. But he felt that the players are professionals and good at doing that.
"We tried to rejuvenate all three of our fast bowlers last week. It was a big Day 5 for them, big week and short turnaround. Those guys are very good at doing that. They are professionals. The reason why they are great cricketers is because they are extremely durable. They are about to play their fourth Test back to back," said Paine.
