Sydney: Australia will win the series in the upcoming Border Gavaskar Cup Test if India pitches reasonably, says former player Ian Healy. The four-Test series is scheduled to begin on the 9th in Nagpur.
The Australian cricket team led by Pat Cummins is currently camping in India. The team will play a four-match Test series and a three-match ODI series here. In this case, Ian Healy has said this.
“Usually Indian pitches are conducive to batting early in Test cricket. Little by little the wicket will turn in favor of spin. Australia will win the Test series if such a pitch is set fairly.
Also, given the last series I’m a little concerned about Stark and Nathan Lyon. Because the pitch there carries the balls unpredictably. India will handle this kind of situation effectively,” he said.
Only if the Indian team wins this series can they get a chance to participate in the final of the World Test Championship. Australia have already qualified for the finals. Apart from that, Australia has shown excellent performance in Test cricket in countries like Sri Lanka and Pakistan. At the same time, it is also noteworthy that the Australian team has not won a Test series in India since 2004.
Even when the England team came to India to play the Test series, there were controversies about the pitch. At that time the former players of the England team were saying ‘this is not fair’. They said that only after a few matches in the series. But Healy said this before the start of the India-Australia Test series.
