I am not sure if this is a cartoon or a fact. Practice is always good whether it is playing against a local team or participating in a local first class match.

Not sure how is this funny. Aussies are doing exactly the same. They ordered their player to come home early. They even shifted their domestic matches so the returning players can play in those games. Why not make a cartoon about that!!! Broaden your horizons mate.

Hmm....For Ind it's about switching from T-20 mode to Test mode. Even in practice matches, Ind batsmen scored above 4 runs per over with wickets falling at regular intervals. This is what we don't want. They may score 3 per over but wickets should not fall so regularly.
