Virat Kohli and company as of now we can see that they are having a heavier patch on the test against Bangladesh and the fans are already waiting for the series against Australia to start.
The test against Australia will commence from 23rd of February and it will be 4 match series here in India as Australia is touring India in the last week of February, and it will be quite interesting to see as how both the teams will react when they meet at the face off on 23rd of February.
Saurav Ganguly the former captain of the Indian Cricket Team has forecasted in his statement saying that Australia might return to their land with a baggage of loss that may ease up to 4-0 in the series.
“Well, Australia are going to find it difficult to win here,” the 44-year-old told TOI, on the sidelines of an event organised to launch a new range of Tetley Super Green Teas on Saturday “It’s hard to beat India in India. There could not have been a much stronger side than the one that toured India in 2001 and yet they could not win. Even the likes of Waugh, Warne, McGrath and Gillespie could not beat us. So, Australia will find it very hard,” reckoned Ganguly, before adding: “I had predicted before the England Test series that it will be 5-0 in India’s favour, but it ended 4-0, and against Australia it could go 4-0 as well.”
Ganguly believes any team travelling to the subcontinent can only do well here provided they have batsmen who can play spinners convincingly and at least a couple of quality spinners in their ranks. “In India you have to play spin well, as well as bowl spin well to win.It’s as simple as that,” said Ganguly. This, precisely, is also the major attribute that has seen India dominate so much at home over decades.”It’s the spinners that have made India so dominant at home over the last 25 years. They just keep coming one after the other. Kumble and Harbhajan in my time, Ashwin and Jadeja now. You hand the ball to any spinner, he wins you games. So that’s what it is,” said Ganguly .
