It is a bit baffling as to what the tactics were. But this is what happens when a team doesn't win a series for a long time.
They play safe and go for the draw. I am sure that was the logic behind inserting the opposition in at SSC for 2nd test also.
To maintain the 1-0 lead and ensure series is lost.
This is the difference between a side that is great, winning and full of confidence, and one that is trying to regain lost ground and rebuild for the future.
