What's Wrong with Cricket Australia?

From here -

Aware that he lacked the pace to beat the bat, Praveen utilised the Gabba's low bounce to keep the batsmen tied down

Who would have thought we would live to see the day when the words "Gabba" and "low bounce" appear in the same statement? Add to it the fact that Perth was such a pancake track during the test. While Indian grounds aspire to have pitches like Australia, it seems like the Aussies are trying to replicate subcontinent pitches.
