On Sony Sports Network, former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja applauded the Australian batter’s aggressive approach and said he was the first in the series to force Indian bowlers to defend.
“Australia seems to have returned strong after losing that test match (the Boxing Day test). The approach has also changed. They were looking for an attack and made the Indians think more than just taking the turnstiles and think where to start their defense,” Jadeja said.

“So a strike baller like Ravichandran Ashwin hits one boundary and short legs fall off. They forced the Indians to think they were defensive for the first time.”
“You have to give credit to the ground man. It’s a different ticket gate than the first two games we’ve seen. There was even more help (for the bowlers) in the first two games, especially Day 1 and Day 2, where there was moisture for spin and seam movement. There was very little (today) for the bowlers,” further said Jadeja.
