There is some breaking news coming in as a very important member of the upcoming series is going to miss out and not be a part of the India vs Australia series. Unfortunately for the men in yellow, or fortunately depending on the way they are looking at it, their head coach Darren Lehman has withdrawn his services as their national coach in order to prepare for the upcoming Ashes Tour.
The ashes begin in November and we feel that it’s not a very wise move by the management as winning a Limited Over Series against India might be more difficult than winning a home Ashes series. We are not comparing both and understand the importance of the ashes but we are baffled by the fact that he would miss an important series because of another scheduled in November.

The tour commences on the 17th of September where Australia are due to play 5 One Day Internationals and 3 T20 games against a formidable Indian Team led by Virat Kohli. Australia has just recently played 2 Test Matches in Asian Conditions in Bangladesh and would be happy to have the hang on similar conditions. Austalia will always play a warm up game before the tour begins where the likes of Rahul Tripathi, Nitish Rana etc will battle it out against the Australian unit.
Cric Crak is hoping for a closely contested series but considering that Australia only has ‘The Ashes’ on their mind we will not be surprised to see another whitewash by the hands of Team India. Having said that, Warner and Smith are wonderful batsmen and have the ability to take the game away from any opposition but so do Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. We wish all the luck to both the teams and honestly hope that the more deserving one wins.
