Reality check bites touring Indian team

They came back pretty well in the last game after losing the first two by big margins, but obviously Indian cricket is at a stage where fans need their team to do more than win a dead rubber. In the first two matches, Indian struggled to get wickets. The ball was just not swinging or seaming in Sydney, not even for Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami. This revived in me memories from a few years back when Indian bowlers could not make inroads even in the middle stages and the opposition kept on putting up massive, unchaseable scores.
