How can the Aussies stop the little Master (Tendulkar) in the Boxing day test and the
up coming series ?
Tendulkar, aged 38, is one of the greatest batsman of all time. In his 31 tests against Australia he averages 60.59 with 11 hundreds.
However, since 2005, he has made one century in 13 tests - but - he always seems to find something against Australia. His test average is 56.02. So, against Australia it is clear that he
This is likley to be his last test series in Australia.
The recent shoulder surgery may have caused some doubt, but it is unlikely that this will stop him.
The question has to be does Australia have the firepower to bowl out Indis twice in a test
match ? .......is the bowling the bigger challenge with the team configuration as the current
batting form ?
It would seem that the stage is set for the "Little Master" at 5 foot 5, to have a big finale in Australia.
