Mark Waugh’s stint as the commentator for the first two India vs Australia Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy was marred by controversy. His on-air spats with Ravi Shastri and Dinesh Karthik were well-publicised, and his criticism of Virat Kohli’s catching was met with criticism from fans. Waugh clarified that he never questioned Kohli’s batting, and even praised his 44 in Delhi as the most assured he had looked in recent times. Former Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin believes this is the perfect opportunity for Kohli to roar back to form and score big in the remaining three innings of the BGT.
