Australia vs India is always a high voltage clash whenever they play where ever they play. But, more than the player’s media are highly involved in trying ways to disrespect the opponents. The Australian media has come hard at team India who is set to play a four-match Test series.
An Australian publication headline ‘The Scaredy Bats’ referred to team India when they reached Adelaide for the first Test.
They reported Indians are afraid of bounce in Brisbane, scared of the dark in Adelaide. Giving these reason and stating visitors refusal to play a day and night Test in Adelaide.
A Twitter user by the name Richard Hinds pointed out the childish behaviour of Australian media on Twitter.
Anyone else tired of the childish and predictable mocking of visiting teams by Australian media? It’s become a boorish tradition that reflects poorly on our country.#AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/3bFgFSgaWZ

Apparently, the Australian public is not happy with its media thrashing a visiting team.
Well last time in Australia, Kohli made 4 hundreds and averaged 86.50, Vijay averaged 60.25, Rahane averaged 57 and Rahul in just his second Test made 110 at the SCG, so umm yeah I think they’ll be fine.

I don’t even bother with 95% of media coverage anymore. Got my favorite journos i’ll follow and don’t even give the others any attention. I simply don’t have time for the aggrovation.

Particularly embarrassing when some erroneously believe it reflects the views of Australians. Respect the opposition is the first thing taught in Australian junior sport

Thanks for saying it Richard. The element of Australia’s sports press that carries on like dildos should be called out for the knobs they are. Australians, on the whole, are not as mindless as this. That’s why so many care about sorting out the culture of national cricket team

Are you personally responsible for the actions of every part of the industry in which you work?

I’ve never seen this type of media before usually of late it’s bagging the Australian team . It’s the same when we tour isn’t it ? That particular one though is very childish

They attack everyone, Look at headline during Ashes
To be honest, I’m sick of the Australian media attacking our nation’s cricket team. The amount of brown nosing towards India is disgraceful.

Thanks for pointing it out @rdhinds because people all over the globe are tired of this brattish coverage. In addition I think it adds undue pressure on your own team to perform & I am sure that they know, you know, I know and the world knows that this Indian team is no pushover.

This must be appreciated. Media and people’s opinion isn’t same.
Thank God it’s coming from ur side and it makes us believe that the media’s opinion is not a reflection of the Australians.
Looking forward for a good series ✌

This is no way abusive, demeaning and belittling the opposition, dear. I know Hindi too.

This isn’t the first time Australian have targeted Indian. They tend to do and praise there team what they do. This is India’s best chance to win series in Australia may experts believe as Warner and Smith are still facing a ban.
There is a certain line no media people should cross. You can’t disrespect the opposition irrespective of who you are playing. It’s a gentleman game. So, you, please try to be gentle.
