Pragyan Ojha, the former Indian left-arm spinner, has come down heavily on a segment of the Australian media. The Australian media were instigating an off-field controversy. They were trying to get under the skin of Team India after India defeated the host by eight-wicket at the MCG in the Boxing Day Test.

In the last few days, there has been a lot of debate in the Australian media regarding the off-field. Recently, the news of five Indian players, who reportedly have broken the bio-security bubble protocols, has been spreading out. Indian administration has completely refuted these claims. Further, the claims of Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, who violated the same protocol, have emerged despite no official confirmation by either Cricket Australia or the BCCI.

Next, there were unverified claims of the Indian team declining to go to Brisbane. It is another claim that Cricket Australia's interim CEO, Nick Hockley, has rubbished.

Furthermore, former Australian cricketers such as Brad Haddin and a few shadow ministers from Queensland have made distasteful remarks on unverified news. Even though, Haddin has said that Team India did not want to go to Brisbane because of Australia's brilliant record at the Gabba; a shadow minister, in a disrespectful tone, asked the Indians not to come to Brisbane if they could not comply with the rules of the Australian government.

Pragyan Ojha commented that Australians are bad losers

Reacting on the same thing, Pragyan Ojha has mentioned that the Australians are bad losers. He has further added that the ploy comes after they were left dumb-found by the fact that the Indians turned the tables on the Australian team in Melbourne.

In the meantime, former Indian stumper Deep Dasgupta has claimed that the off-field stuff would further spur Team India. They will be at their best in the third test when they play against the Australian team in SCG.
