India vs Australia: Harbhajan Singh blames pitch for Pune loss, praises Steve Smith
Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh blamed the pitch for the India's 333-run loss in the opening match at the Maharastra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, who predicted a 4-0 verdict in favour of India for the four-match Test rubber against Australia, blamed the pitch for the home team's 333-run loss in the opening match. The Punjab tweaker, however, had a go at the pitch, which remained slow and low throughout the course of the game and hoped that the teams get better tracks in the remaining three matches of the rubber. "Let's hope we play on good tracks from here onwards and get the right results," he said on Twitter. The Virat Kohli-led home side succumbed to their fourth biggest Test loss after Australian left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe spun a web to take identical figures of 6/35 in both the innings and break the pre-series favourites India's backbone within just three days.
