'That was a pretty special innings today': Smith | Vodafone Test Series 2020-21

Steve Smith reflects on Australia’s defeat to India in the fourth and final Test at …


  1. Abhi se hin decide kr liya kya ki india harne wali hai??

  2. Abhi pehle hin din tha match ka and aap loog itnni baal ki khaal nikal rhe ho

  3. Akash chopra earning money on every cricket news channel..😆😆

  4. Pant must be hopeless. Century in a warm up game, Made a significant contribution last time india toured Australia which we went on to win the series. It's really tough to be in his place right now

  5. in last test series of india, shaw scored 14/16/51/14 , chopra ji har baar kohli ke decision ko back karne ke lie akhir kitne rs milte apko ?

  6. I love Shaw but Gill has outplayed him many times , he really deserves a chance now . I believe Gill will come in, in the later half of the series .

  7. Natarajan should have been given chance in test with his current form

  8. Tom speaks very precisely about cricketing point of view and is really something we can learn while Akash speak very ordinary way like he doesn't have points to churn. News channel should bring expert not people who have mouth without cricketing brain.

  9. watch virat kohli and steve smith interviewing each other

  10. Why jadeja is not in playing xi is he injured right now

  11. Honestly Australia looks too strong for India, especially in Australian conditions when Virat leaving, Ishant being not there..

  12. Prithvi will make impact in first test . Score heavily . Umesh & Ashwin both has skill & will take wicket .

  13. Bad decision by selection committee..Prithwi Shaw was not able to play the swing delivery of Trent Boult in IPL..How will he manage Aus Bowling attack..He is weak against bouncers..His shots are imperfect..And no leg movement..Gill would be a better option in my opinion..If not than Rahul

  14. As long as Shastri and Kohli are at the helm, India can't win overseas series in SENA countries. By selecting Prithvi Shaw over Shubman Gill, Team India has proved again that they believe in Miracles rather than process. I am expecting a repeat of New Zealand 2020 tour in this series as well. Labuschagne and Smith will send Indian bowlers on a leather hunt. I hope I am wrong

  15. 😂😂😂😂😂😂saha selected now if 5 wickets gone Tuk tuk will come

  16. Rishabh Pant has lost the belief in TEAM INDIA'S Management , despite his century.

  17. Aannnnddd, Pandya and KL, where are they? VK says he prefers people who pick themselves, these both have picked themselves…I mean look at the form these guys are in…I’d be fine with Gill not playing had it been KL opening with Mayank.

  18. Bhai chopra saab, tum toh political baat kr rhe ho…sahi h ya galat ye btao, yehi expert opinion hota h, facts aur stats toh hum bhi jaante h dost 🙏🙏🙏

  19. Shaw has poor technique playing fast and moving balls. Not justified to leave Gill out. He is inform with better technique. No idea what thought goes into Virat’s head before such crucial matches. Guess its the pressure. As for Ashwin, I’d have gone with Kuldeep for he is a left arm legspinner…then, finally the keeper decision, I’d have gone with Pant.

  20. I think Shubam Gill any day over Pritvi Shaw

  21. Saha best wicketkeeper in the world? Butler, Watling, De Kock don't exist according to Aakash I guess.

  22. Saha over Pant baffles me completely.

  23. Wish Australia cleans up the Indian side in two days.

  24. Shaw se acha sala ek aur bowler hi khila leta ,kmsekm bowling toh krta.

  25. First test is our only chance because after that, no kohli, no ishant so we will get butchered

  26. Tom Moody: Pant bh**d*ka mota ho gaya

  27. Ye Chopra ko hatao yaar…….

  28. @akash chopra ….Saha has much better record than you…

  29. Aakash Chopra vs ESPNcricinfo vs Cricbuzz vs Sports Tak.

  30. Gill and Pant should have been selected over Shaw and Saha. Hopefully they both play in the second test.

  31. Bechare Shaw par bohot pressure hai perform karne ka😖

  32. Akash chopra waffles so much, ask about umesh and talks about ashwin – what a dumbo. Typical of indian commentators, zaheer is also the same

  33. India never went for considering recent record as well as past they did not play pant and gill.

  34. There should be a place of KL RAHUL in the test .

  35. Why Aakash chopra everywhere….. 🤦‍♂️

  36. Moody is enjoying at 4:12 on umesh, ind will miss ishant, kohli, sharma, gill. bad prithvi is in team. Ind will loose series quite handsomely to be honest. And everyday sports tak wale will be bewajh helpful ki kuch ho jae, pr kuch ni hoga. Series result :3-1 or 2-1 in favour of Aussies
