‘What goes around comes around’ applies perfectly for India as they are being currently outdone by the Aussie spinners in the 1st Test in Pune.
You would normally expect the visiting teams to come and struggle traditionally against the home side’s spinners but this time, things have reversed and India have collapsed and how!

The collapse explained perfectly:
94 for 4 95 for 5 95 for 6 95 for 7 98 for 8
Former Australian skipper Michael Clarke is happy with SOK.

5 wkts in a span of fewest balls vs India:
The decision to bring Monty Panesar on board is more and more looking like a masterstroke
That time spent with Monty Panesar…O’Keefe doing to India what Monty did in Mumbai in 2012. What a collapse, what a spell. #IndvAus

A very unconventional collapse for India at their own turf.
India losing 5 wickets for 4 runs in Tests:
A reality check.
The spider looking vulnerable in its own web……
