India vs Australia: Steve Smith to brake traditions before Pune Test
Steve Smith will not announce the playing XI of the team before the game, which has been the case with the Kangaroos for many years. The Australian skipper Steve Smith has decided to brake the tradition of Australia cricket team. Captain Smith said that he will announce the playing XI for the game at the time of the toss, giving no chance to Indian bowlers to make their plans to launch an attack on Australian batting line-up. This has not come as a surprise for us as the Aussies are expected to struggle against Indian spinners and leaking out your playing XI a day before the game, equals to providing an advantage to the hosts.
