Australia Got Distracted By Team India's Sideshows, Says Tim Paine On Historic Series Loss in January

Sydney [Australia], May 13: Australia Test skipper Tim Paine has indicated that his side was distracted by Team India during the tour which eventually saw the hosts losing the Test series in January this year.

India defeated Australia by three wickets against all odds in the final Test of the four-match series at The Gabba in January to take the series 2-1. Three Reasons Why Tim Paine Should Be Sacked as Australian Captain After Humiliating Test Series Loss to India.

Paine claimed that the Ajinkya Rahane-led side created “sideshows” by saying that the visitors were not going to the Gabba (venue of the fourth Test).

of the challenge of playing against India is they’re very good at niggling you and trying to distract you with stuff that doesn’t really matter and there were times in that series where we fell for that,” news.com.au quoted Paine as saying at a function for the Chappell Foundation at the SCG on Wednesday night.

“The classic example was when they said they weren’t going to the Gabba so we didn’t know where we were going. They’re very good at creating these sideshows and we took our eye off the ball,” he added.

The last time a visiting team came out triumphant from the Brisbane Cricket Ground was back in November 1988 when the mighty West Indian outfit under the leadership of Viv Richards thrashed Allan Border’s team by nine wickets.

What made the feat even more commendable is how Team India fought injuries and mental fatigue – due to the bio-bubble restrictions — to register a historic win.

In the first Test against Australia, India was bundled out for 36 and there were many pundits who said the visiting team would face a 4-0 drubbing. But proving every critic wrong, the Rahane-led side famous victories at Melbourne and Brisbane.

The side also a draw at Sydney and at every step of the way, the team overcame adversity.

Granada vs Real Madrid, La Liga 2020-21: Marcelo Dropped From Squad After Argument With Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid have a number of injury conerns in their defence and their backline for the clash against Granada was shortened even further after star defender Marcelo was left off the squad by manager Zinedine Zidane despite being fully fit. It is understood that the Brazilian full-back was axed from the team for Thursday’s game in due to an argument with the manager. Real Madrid Sweats it Out For La Liga 2021 Match Against Granada as the Title Race Still Remains Open.

Marcelo, who has been Real Madrid’s main left-back for over a decade, has been relegated to a back-up role by Zinedine Zidane since the arrival of Ferlan Mendy at the club. However, after the Frenchman was ruled out for the rest of the season with an injury, the Brazilin was expected to replace him in the team but has seen himself being excluded from the squad for the crucial encounter against Granada at Los Carmenes. Ronald Koeman Doubtful About Barcelona Clinching La Liga 2021 Title After 3-3 Draw Against Levante.

Real Madrid Squad

According to a report from Goal, Marcelo’s exclusion from the Real Madrid squad for the Granada encounter in La Liga was due to an argument with manager Zinedine Zidane. It is understood that the Brazilian is frustrated with his depleting role and the manager’s tactics and line-up decisions in recent months with the issue coming to head at Tuesday’s training session.

The left-back has been starved of minutes this season as he is 15th in the Real Madrid squad for total minutes this term after playing the majority of the campaign as the back-up for Ferlan Mendy. It is understood that the Brazilian isn’t the only veteran frustrated with Zinedine Zidane’s tactics and there is a growing concern that the manager might leave at the end of the season.

Real Madrid will have to count on youngster Miguel Gutierrez to step up in the absence of the first- left-backs in the important encounter against Granada as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid. With three games left in the season, Zidane men are five points behind in the La Liga title race and will be aiming to cut the gap.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed the two, reaching the landmark in just less than three seasons having joined the Bianconeri in 2018-19 from Real Madrid on a record transfer fee.
