Australia have started to create a tactics to stop the little master in australia in the upcoming test series.It was heared thatjohn buchanan an former coach of australia prepared a blue print of how. to get out sachin early. In this print he wrote that the bowlers of australia should get sachin out as early as possible because his foot work doesnt look too good as coming new to the crease.He says that sachin is having a problem in playing short pitch balls and he has some problem facing left hand seamers too. I dont think these are the reasons that can stop sachin in australia.

I think such an incident would make him more confident about his play and also about his importance for the opening game. If you realise that you are born in team is thinking too much about you then you are sure that they are afraid of you otherwise they wouldn't be wasting so much time making strategies against you. For him it is the simplest thing to do play as he is playing. Because the way he's playing he is unbeatable and he will definitely make at least a 90s innings and that is a very good result although he will miss the century. On the other hand Australia's thinking too much about getting him out. Let me be clear that the calibre of him he can get out cheaply when he is new to the crease but if he stays there then he can create a lot of problem and then all the strategies will fail and they had to shift to their next plan.

well my friend they know what sachin is a very good player of fast bowling and also shot which Bolling. In Ivel and said to all your points won by one. Let's take the first point is saying that he is a bit tentative about his footwork when he is new to the crease well in that case I would like to tell you that the batsmen when he is new to the Crease as this tendency and this is nothingsomething new to sachin. Even the Australian captain is so a tentative when he is new to the field. about shortage bawling well he is a very aggressive batsmen and also very intelligent. When he thinks that he will play a stroke against a short pitched ball he will do that underlies it is smart enough to leave those balls and wait for the bad balls to be smashed to the boundaries. This is the practice which he has done to get so many runs and about left-arm fast bowler will these are a few things which do not bother great players he may have got out to such players but he will definitely work out a gameplan against them and with the calibre of Sachin Tendulkar I don't think he has such weakness and still made so many runs. So blueprints will not help it is the bowlers who has to do the job on field and every time we have to do something better than the previous to get him out to.

I think this is a routine process that a team does,this time the media attention has been grabbed and thats the only difference.now talking about the tactics against sachin,that itself says how much australia is worried about sachin's form.now buchannan says he has planned things and you expect sachin to commit the mistake that he has told.even sachin would be having great tactics against australian bowlers and i dont think he is going to disclose it what its going to be.sachin is in great form now and australia would find it hard to get him out.lets hope that he would perform well in the upcoming series.
