The 5-match T20 series between India and Australia has started.

The 5-match Twenty20 series between India and Australia has started from Thursday. After only 2 people turned up for the pre-match press conference, many were surprised with captain Suryakumar Yadav.

The long-day World Cup schedule has not only tired the players, support staff, organizers but also the journalists covering this big competition. Apart from that, India’s defeat in the final has also cast a shadow of depression across the country, so Savvy has temporarily withdrawn from this popular game. A vivid example of this is now in the field.

It was only natural that this bilateral series between India and Australia was played just 3 days after the World Cup final. ‘Only 2 people?’ he just laughed. As the fans lost interest, so did the journalists, said a journalist. Otherwise, when Indian cricketers attend press conferences, it goes on for a long time and a kind of rivalry starts between them all.

For this, the media manager of the team is allowed to ask only one question to selected journalists. Not everyone gets a chance to ask, many questions are left unanswered. Wednesday’s meeting was over in just 4 minutes even though only 2 agencies (PTI or ANI) were present. They also had an opportunity to ask multiple questions. After this, Australian captain Matthew Wade’s press conference was cancelled.
