The Test series between India and Australia starts on Thursday. The first match will be in Adelaide. There will be a day-night test match. This match will also get special attention as it will be the last match of Indian captain Virat Kohli on this tour.
The BCCI has granted paternity leave to Kohli after the first Test. He will return to India for the birth of his first child.
Australia’s great spin bowler Shane Warne said that India had a memorable performance in the Border-Gavaskar series in 201-19-1-19. For the first time in Australia, an Asian team won the series. However, he is confident that Australia can win the series this time around as Kohli’s absence will have a big impact.
“Two years ago, the Indian team deserved to win the series,” Warne told a news channel. Being a good team. Virat Kohli is probably the biggest star right now and said that Test cricket is the most important format of the game.
Warne also praised the Board of Regulators of Cricket in India. He said, “The manner in which the BCCI has stood up for first-class cricket is commendable. Players are actually going back to play first-class cricket, they are getting points there and they are getting selected.
Warne added, “I remember my time when I used to play in India, when ODI cricket was not much. There was no T20 cricket at that time. India is definitely one of the best teams in Test cricket, if not the best. I think IPL also benefited.
“All the international fast bowlers come to play in the IPL,” Warne said. India’s brilliant young batsmen face some of the best fast bowlers in the world. Many fast bowlers are also coming from India. In such a situation I will definitely watch this Test series.
Warne commented on who will be named after the series. He said, ‘Who will win this series? So I think Australia will win the series in this domestic situation. My mind is saying India but witnessing Australia. But I think playing Virat Kohli in the first Test will play a big role. There are probably more powerhouses in Australia. “I think Australia will win the series 2-1,” Warne concluded.
