It was 1/31 with Rohit Sharma and Chesteshwar Pujara batting when Karthik requested Waugh in regards to the discipline the Aussies had in place.
Earlier, Waigh had stated: ““I’m astounded at this discipline, truthfully. I can’t imagine you wouldn’t have a foolish mid off. You’ve received 100 one thing runs on the board, you’ve received Pujara who’s struggling for runs, he does pad the ball away loads on the off aspect. Certainly you possibly can have a bat pad off aspect.”
It was a subject Karthik wished to dig in on.
Karthik: “I do know you’re not proud of the sector set, let’s go – what are you speaking about?”
Waugh: “I desire a bat pad off-side and I need my level up and type of a training cowl, that may keep there, that will be an inexpensive discipline.”
The subsequent shot from Pujara went by means of level.
Karthik: “Mark, if you happen to had the purpose up that ball most likely would have gone to the boundary.”
Waugh: “In the event you had level up, it might have gone straight to him within the circle.”
Karthik: “You don’t assume he would have discovered the hole on that one? He had time.”
Waugh: “We clearly assume totally different but when I’m enjoying towards Pujara, I desire a bat-pad off-side as a result of I feel he’s a giant likelihood of compressing one on the market.”
Karthik: “However there’s not for Rohit Sharma, not speaking about that?”

Sanjay Manjrekar should have felt it getting a bit testy within the field as he interjected with a rating replace.
However the pair weren’t finished there.
Karthik: “So that you’re proud of the sector? There’s no one for Rohit Sharma, you’re okay with that? You’d do the identical as a captain?”
Waugh: “I didn’t know this was a press convention.”
Karthik: “It’s a little bit of banter.”
Waugh: “I will restrict your questions per session, you’re going to get one query proper? No extra.”
There was then some silence on the protection earlier than the following ball went for six and the subject moved on.
