Aakash Chopra questions the intent of Team Australia in the ongoing series.

Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer for India, has raised doubts about the commitment and mindset of Australia in their ongoing T20I series against India.

Aakash Chopra questions the desire of Team Australia to win the series. Following Australia's consecutive defeats in the series, with a 44-run loss in Thiruvananthapuram and a close two-wicket defeat in Visakhapatnam, Chopra suggested that the Australian team might be suffering from mental fatigue due to the World Cup 2023 victory.

In a video analysis on his YouTube channel, Chopra speculated that Australia's current performance could be attributed to emotional exhaustion after their World Cup win.

Chopra said, "The Australian team needs to buck up, but the big question is, do they actually want to win? Are they here to win? 'What else are you here for'—it  reminds me of Kapil Paaji (Dev). It is being heard that some reinforcements are being sent to Australia. They are slightly emotionally drained after winning the World Cup.”

He further added, “I will want to give a suggestion to Matthew Short. Keep your ego aside because Ravi Bishnoi will come and bowl you a googly—you, Ravi Bishnoi, I, our commentary team, the Australian team, the Indian team, and the 25000 spectators in Guwahati know that—so play a little cautiously.”
