Australia is known for using mind games to gain an advantage over opponents. Cricket Australia attempted to do so by sharing a video of India's batting collapse in the 2020-21 tour. India was bowled out for only 36 in the second innings of the first Test in Adelaide, which resulted in one of Australia's most impressive bowling displays. Cricket.com.au tweeted, "All out for 36. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy starts Thursday.
Cricket Australia's move was met with criticism from Indian fans, including former cricketer Aakash Chopra, who reminded them of India's 2-1 series win.
India and Australia are set to face off in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, starting Thursday in Nagpur for the first of four Tests. Australia has not won a Test series in India since 2004, while India aims to continue its dominance after winning the previous two tours. This marks the 16th edition of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, initiated in 1996-97, with India winning 9 of the 15 completed series and Australia winning 5. One series ended in a draw.
