Ian Healy has kicked off on India after Australia’s proposal to get more to know the Nagpur pitch, on which they were humiliated during the essential Test, was baffled by ground staff.

“That is bad, that is only not great for cricket. The ICC needs to step in here.

“For them to water the wicket casually when it was mentioned for training is awful and that needs to get to the next level.”

Australian coach Andrew McDonald told SEN the session was not “naughty boy nets” but an attempt to learn more about the “extreme” conditions.

“It’s reasonable isn’t it, their expectation with the surfaces they need to play on. We were expecting that approaching in so as I said previously, we’ve been truly clear on what we expected,” he said.

“At the point when we arrived we got precisely that. They’re not shrewd kid nets today (the arranged meeting). We have a major crew of 17 players so there are various individuals in various preparation programs.

“There’ll be two or three players from the game that will descend, so they’ll seen at train. Yet, it’s unquestionably not devious kid nets, it’s simply getting ready for the following game.”
