“I am not trying to take away any credit from India, they played well and they are a very good side. But yes at same time when they won in Australia, there is no doubt that Australian cricket was going through a turmoil and there were problems in their dressing room. And they were without Steve Smith and David Warner,” Waqar mentioned throughout a video convention with native journalists.
Warner and Smith had been serving their one 12 months bans after the ball-tampering controversy.
