Borovec supports Australia’s strategy despite T20 loss to India in 2023-24 series

1 min read

Australia’s stand-in head coach, Andre Borovec, expressed disappointment about losing too many wickets in the first ten overs after his team’s 44-run loss in the second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram. However, he also commended the batters’ intent throughout the chase. India batted first and scored 235 for 4. In response, Australia was 104 after ten overs but had already lost four wickets. Despite Marcus Stoinis and Tim David’s effort, adding 81 off just 38 balls for the fifth wicket, the team fell short and is now trailing 2-0 in the five-match series. Borovec also acknowledged that India scored 20 or more in an over on four occasions while Australia did so on two. He highlighted the challenge of bowlers closing the over after conceding boundaries on the first two balls. Finally, Borovec explained that Australia left out Jason Behrendorff not because he was unfit but to play two spinners for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA, where pitches are expected to be slower.
