Australian skipper Tim Paine urged his batsmen to be more proactive and expressive with their strokeplay to get on top of the Indian bowlers, who have managed to keep the host quiet with their tight bowling so far.
When asked about the plans ahead of the third Test that starts in Sydney on Thursday, Paine said, “We have spoken about the mindset. We have got some decent plans, it is just a matter of going out and having the courage to execute him.”
“So if you are a guy who wants to take them on and hit over the top or sweep and reverse-sweep the spinners when they are bowling, then we are just encouraging the guys to do that and to have the courage to take the game on,” he added.
The Aussie skipper further said, “I think at times, we have just let them dictate to us a little bit, let them build pressure and, then you know with the pressure, you get wickets.”
