Ravi Shastri brands Australian batsmen `sitting ducks` following Hyderabad capitulationSydney: Former Indian batsman and renown television commentator Ravi Shastri has branded Australian batsmen as sitting ducks following yet another batting capitulation during the second Test match in Hyderabad.

Shastri, speaking even before Tuesday`s travesty, described the tourists` experience in this series as a nightmare.


Shastri said this series could well turn out to be one of the weakest Australian sides to have visited this part of the world, adding the visitors are in disarray.

He added the Australian top order is woefully ill equipped to play spin, adding ugly sweeps and hoicks are taking them nowhere.

Shastri further said the Australian batsmen can`t bring themselves to leave the crease and, without it, they are no better than sitting ducks.

Humbled and hurting, Australia`s players will be given a break to clear to their heads and go their separate ways before the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series resumes in India`s north next week.

Australia`s embarrassing capitulation on Tuesday morning was the low point of a grim campaign in the subcontinent. A huge defeat, by an innings and 135 runs, leaves the visitors 2-0 down in the series and bereft of answers.
