Failed on slow pitch what they will do on fast pitches?

Today, Indian team terribly lost to Australia in another test match and helped Australia in further strengthening their home test match records. In the first test match at Melbourne, Indian team even failed in crossing 200 run marks in both the innings and lost this match by 337 runs. Back home large numbers of Indian fans have lot of expectations from Indian team that they will win this test series. Melbourne was the only slow pitch in Australia out of the four pitches where India and Australia will play or have played test matches with each others.

Therefore, there were lot of expectations from Indian team that they win this win this test or at least give a good fight. Indian cricket team always find a difficulty in playing on the fast pitches and facing bowlers who bowl above 150 Km/h speed. Now all the remaining test matches will be played on the fast pitches and therefore, chances look very dark for the Indian team. Even before the start of this test series, some Australian experts have given their verdict that it will be amazing that if Indian team even wins a single test match.

Earlier, I rejected this verdict as pressure technique by Australian media but after this lacklustre performance, this verdict looks becoming true in future. Australia already holds a great success rate in tests against India in Australia because year after year, most of the Indian teams have found them in defensive side against Australia. Some hope for India is available in the form of Varinder Sehwag, who was rested in first test. Sehwag holds a good test record in Australia and therefore, he can help India in changing situation in Australia.
