Ranchi: Australia head coach Darren Lehmann wants his batsmen to put into practice on the final day on Monday whatever they have practiced in Dubai prior to the series. They practiced on pitches that resembled what they would get in India.
Speaking on Sunday after the penultimate day’s play, Lehmann said: “We’ll have to save this game. It was tough to lose those two wickets, there were some good balls from them (India). It is a good challenge for the group. What we’ve put in at practice, obviously we’ve got to do that on Monday and deliver on the big stage. Once the ball gets a little bit softer it plays pretty well, so there’s no real demons in the track.”
