The Australian media described the star-studded Indian batting line-up as "useless rubble" and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as a "passive captain" as they taunted the visiting team for its abject surrender in the ongoing Test series.
India meekly surrendered the four-match series after being humiliated by Australia by an innings and 37 runs in the third Test here and the local media targetted the visiting side's highly-rated but struggling batsmen and captain Dhoni for the spineless show.
Under the headline 'India's pillars of strength reduced to useless rubble', The Australian wrote, "Dhoni is not the only shaky pillar of what only eight months ago was the number one cricket nation in the world. VVS Laxman, once the scourge of Australian bowlers, is being flayed himself at home after scores of 2,1, 2, 66, 31 and 0."
