“I’m coming in an early to make a prediction, I strongly feel India will bat once and only once in this Test match. Mark my words Mark,” said DK. Waugh was quick to respond to DK’s comments as he said, “We’ll see about that DK, we’ll see about that.”
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri who was present in the commentary box at that point of time, slammed Waugh for his prediction from 2020-21 Border Gavaskar Trophy. Mark Waugh had predicted that Australia will whitewash India 4-0 after they were bowled out for 36.
“I remember a prediction he (Mark Waugh) made when we were 36 all out in Adelaide in Australia when he said ‘India will get hammered 4-0’.”
Dinesh Karthik on Friday morning, ahead of the Day 2’s play also made a bold prediction stating that India might bat the full day today.
