Australia crashed to a heavy defeat in the series-decider against India in Bengaluru. Opening batsman Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli led India’s blistering charge in emphatic fashion as the Aussie bowling attack was left desperately trying to find crucial breakthroughs.
Amidst the backdrop of Australia’s shambolic loss, former West Indian pacer and renowned commentator Ian Bishop rubbed salt into the wounds of the losing side with a cheeky remark. The 52-year-old poked humour at Australia’s lack of fightback and alluded to the West Indies’ decent performance on their tour of India last year.
The Kieron Pollard-led West Caribbean team fought a closely contested three-match series against India in December 2019 with the hosts emerging triumphant by a margin of 2-1. However, the series-decider was a closer match than the one witnessed between Australia and India, thus driving the logic behind Bishop’s sly dig at the Aussie team.
