IND vs AUS: “Younger I probably would have panicked”: Matthew Wade on chasing record total


Matthew Wade committed a robbery in the first T20I match against India. The chase of the visitors was quite hit and miss and the game was fairly even. Indian Cricket Team thought they could make it a match as they had Harshal Patel and Bhuvneshwar Kumar who have a reputation for being some of the best at the death overs

Aussies needed 61 runs to win from 5 overs, which was a tough task as there were no real batters present. Matthew Wade took the calculating risk and scattered the bowlers and he wasn’t really afraid to take down Harshal & Bhuvneshwar. It’s not wrong to say that Aussies have a habit of finding match winners in the 11th hour. Matthew Wade scored 45 runs in 21 balls chasing the highest total in India.

Matthew Wade on Run Chase

After the match, Wade was seen interacting with the reporters and asked about the chase. “Yeah, I think it’s just playing in this country, to be honest, I’ve played enough now to understand it takes a bit of time to find the pace of the wicket, although that wicket was a great wicket, a great outfield and lovely to save. You still need a few balls to find your feet a bit. A young me in that situation would probably panic and really try to find a boundary faster than necessary. But yeah, I had a lot of confidence in that outfield, how fast ran into the wicket that came up.. If you get a few, you’ll find a boundary enough, so. ”

The Men in Blue had hoped they would win the match by at least 20-30 runs, as 209 is a very large score. Head Coach Rahul Dravid & Skipper Rohit Sharma would be concerned, as now they have to go back to the drawing board. The team has shown a lot of decisiveness, but that is not enough to win a match.

It’s not wrong to say that Rohit Sharma looks confused when the team is under pressure. We all know he’s a captain’s bowler, but that’s not good for the team. A billion people would be concerned because this team finds different ways to lose the match over and over again, which is not a good sign at all.
