Yesterday, 11 Indians could not score what two did seven years ago to this very day. Actually, they haven’t scored as much for all of last month.
Interestingly, one of those two Indians is having to open nowadays because there is nobody else. The other one – who scored more – did so as an opener.
If he hasn't retired, where the f*** is he?
