“If I was in Australian camp, I would want both of these men,” says Michael Clarke

The third Test match of the four-match series, the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023, will be held in Indore from March 1 to March 5.

Former captain Michael Clarke questioned Australian team management’s decision not to seek the advice of Mathew Hayden and Mark Waugh on tour as Australia trailed India 0-2 in the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. In the absence of Pat Cummins, Australia will be led by Steve Smith in the third Test match, which begins on Wednesday in Indore.


Team India successfully defended the Border Gavaskar Trophy after defeating Australia by six wickets in the second Test match and would like to go all-in on the WTC final in England. India also won the first Test by an innings and 132 runs, giving them a 2-0 lead in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023.

“Matt Hayden and Mark Waugh are both there in India as commentators. If I was in the Australian camp, I would want both of these men to be with the team at the nets every single day. If they want money give it to them. Even Hayden who used the sweep to perfection is saying on commentary that you can’t just sweep every ball or play the reverse sweep every ball. He knows it. You can play these shots when you are not out 80, not when you are on 8. Why can’t the management use these players? Why can’t they draw on their experience?” Clarke said on Backstage with Boria show.
