Mumbai: Describing the Australian team currently touring India as one of the weakest sides, former cricketer Nilesh Kulkarni on Tuesday pointed out that the below-par showing of the tweakers has affected the visitors' performance in the ongoing Test series against India.
"Looking at the performance, definitely it is one of the weaker Australia teams to have toured India in the recent past. The performance is reflecting as well," said the former India left-arm spinner on the sidelines of Salaam Bombay Cricket Academy's tournament in Mumbai.
"It (Australian spin attack) is inexperienced. As a batsman when you get a hundred it's a habit, likewise as a spinner you need to pick up a five-wicket haul and that makes a huge difference. Unfortunately, Australia is lacking currently in that department," he said.
