Tim Paine, Australia's Test captain, has been aggressive for some time, particularly after the team's two consecutive series losses to India at home. However, the 36-year-old Australian player has criticized Team India for distracting them, resulting in Australia's eventual defeat. He went on to say that part of the reason for the failure was that they were overwhelmed by India's "niggling."
As per the buzz, Paine said, "They're really good at niggling you and trying to confuse you with stuff that doesn't really matter, and there were moments in that series when we fell for that."
India defeated Australia by three wickets and took the series 2-1 at Gabba
Indian cricket fans have sharply reacted to Tim Pane's comments and said that it was a silly reason and have trolled him. Here are some memes making the rounds on social media
