WTC Final, Team India seems to be lagging behind Australia in the final of the World Test Championship. By the end of the third day's play, Australia has made a huge lead of 296. Looks like India may now have to chase down the biggest target at The Oval. India did not include Ravichandran Ashwin in the team in this match and the Australian team managed to score 469 runs in the first innings. After this the top order failed in batting. However, when Rahane and Shardul got lucky, both of them together averted the threat of follow-on from India. This is why ex-Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali commented on Rahul Dravid.
Ex-Pakistan cricketer said, When India won the toss and decided to bowl after worrying about the first two hours, the match was lost there. The kind of bowling attack that was in front of them, they have played in the IPL. By lunch the Indian bowlers were jubilant as if they would win the match. The only option left with India now is to get Australia out quickly and pull off a miracle in the fourth innings. Only two-three players looked fit during India's 120 overs fielding. Everyone looked tired except Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja.

Basit Ali said on Rahul Dravid, I have always been a huge fan of Rahul Dravid and always will be but he has proved to be a complete failure as a coach. You make turning pitches in India, answer me this, when India used to tour Australia, would the wickets there be like that. There, there is bounce and faster pitches. God knows what he was thinking, ′′ When the above was distributing wisdom, don't know where they were hiding behind the mountains.
