Australia Favorites Against India In Upcoming IND Vs AUS Test Series Border Gavaskar Trophy

India tour of Australia: Recently, former Australia wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist had said that this time Australia’s team can win the Test series on the tour of India. He had said that Australia’s current Test team has the ability to repeat history just like in 2004. Many other former cricketers have also told Australia’s side to be strong this time.

Australia last won a Test series in India in the year 2004. Before that in 1969, she was able to win the Test series here. That is, only once in the last 53 years has the Australian team been able to defeat India at home. Australian players know that the biggest challenge is to beat India in India, yet why are cricket experts considering Australia as favourites? Learn here…

Excellent record of Australia in last one year
Australia’s team is doing wonders with the red ball under the captaincy of Pat Cummins. After thrashing England 4-0 in the last Ashes series, this team recently defeated South Africa on their own soil after a long time. He also won the Test series on the tour of Pakistan. In the last one year, Australia has played 12 Test matches and in these it has won 7 and 4 matches have been drawn. He has lost only one Test match against Sri Lanka. In such a situation, his recent record in Test is tremendous.

Team India’s poor record last year
The Indian team has been a flop in Test cricket last year. He was defeated in the Test series against South Africa. Even on the tour of England, he had to face defeat in the only Test. Last year, India only managed to defeat teams like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Last year, the Indian team played 7 Test matches and out of these, it won 4 and lost in 3 matches.

Australia’s Test team is very strong
Australia has not made much changes in its Test playing-11 in the last one year. Among the batsmen, he had to make changes only once due to Cameron Green’s injury. That means Australia’s Test team is fixed. Everyone’s roles are also fixed and everyone is playing it well. Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labushane, Steve Smith and David Warner are scoring runs in Tests continuously. Travis Head’s bat is also spewing a lot of runs. Then in bowling too, Australia has sharp bowlers like Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. There is also a spinner like Nathan Lyon in this team who can wreak havoc in Indian conditions.

Indian team looks weak in test
The Indian team is excellent in white ball cricket but is proving to be a bit weak in the case of red ball. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not been able to do anything special in Tests for a long time. Players like KL Rahul are also colorless at the moment. Rishabh Pant remains unmatched in Tests but due to a car accident, he will not be able to play the series. Batsmen like Suryakumar have definitely got a place in the Test squad but they have no experience of playing Test at the international level. Overall, Indian batting looks very weak here.

There is still doubt on whether Ravindra Jadeja is able to play in the Test series against Australia. Jasprit Bumrah is already out of two Tests and there is not much hope from him even further. In such a situation, there is not much edge in bowling as well.
