Dejected with Indian batsmen’s poor shot selection in their 329-run chase, former skipper Sunil Gavaskar said that the pressure of the cricket World Cup semi-final got to the team as it was outplayed by Australia here today. “Team India succumbed under the pressure of a big game. It lost in all departments, especially in batting,” said Gavaskar.
Gavaskar, though, opined that Australian skipper Michael Clarke had the liberty to experiment on the fielding front after their batsmen, led by Steven Smith’s 105, had posted 328 for seven after electing to bat first. “Clarke had a liberty to experiment today. Australia had put up a big score today, which gave them room to experiment with their bowling and fielding today,” said the cricketer-turned-analyst.
