Canberra: Hit all over the park in the series so far, the struggling Indian bowlers have the sympathy of marauding Australian opener David Warner, who feels the bowlers' job has become tough due to flat wickets produced for one-day cricket these days.
Indian batsmen did exceedingly well in all three ODIs, putting up 300-plus targets but the bowlers could not defend any of them giving Australia an unassailable lead of 3-0 in the five-match series.
'Need early wickets'
"In any kind of cricket, all you want is early wickets. I think one-day cricket now is being played along the lines of Test cricket in the first 10 overs, then they will look to accelerate in the middle part and obviously look to finish it off. It's quite challenging for the opening bowlers," Warner said ahead of the fourth ODI here yesterday.
"They've got to bowl good lines and lengths. Given, the flat wickets around the world in ODI cricket, you just got to dry the runs up and create the pressure."
