The former spinner interacted with the members of the Australian Team and had praises for Mohali ODI’s top-performer Ashton Turner.

Speaking about the team, he said,” At Australian High Commission I had good cricket conversation with coach Justin Langer & saw in him a decent student of cricket. Very innocently curious & lovely was Ashton Turner..the marauder of Mohali. Cricket has a great knack of throwing up Champs from nowhere while some dream of conveyor belts..?”

Speaking about the Indian team, Bishan Singh Bedi said that the decision to exclude MS Dhoni for the last 2 games has baffled him. He also added that MS is a crucial part of Virat’s performance as a captain.

What’s next?

After two impressive games in Ranchi and Mohali, the Australian Team will look to seal the series at Delhi. Having already won the T20 series, a win in the 50-over format as well will boost their confidence ahead of the World Cup.
