On February 9, the first Test is scheduled to start in Nagpur.
Even though several of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy’s major players will miss the first two Test matches because of injury, former India international Dodda Ganesh is confident that Rohit Sharma and his team would win the four-match series. The Pat Cummins-led team has little chance against India, according to the 49-year-old, and won’t win a single game in the next series.
Notably, Australia has not defeated India in a Test series in India since the 2004–05 campaign. As a result, the side will undoubtedly have a test, especially given their past struggles handling spin. Ganesh believes that the Indian spinners can cause havoc to the Australian batters, and as a result, the Indian squad would easily win the series.
“I can appreciate optimism, but it seems a bit far-fetched to predict that Australia will win the series in India. Australia has no chance against the superior spin trio from India. They will lose a test. The only thing that needs to be settled is whether India wins 3-0 or 4-0, Ganesh tweeted on Monday.
Australia is the team Jayawardene predicts will win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Mahela Jayawardene, a former captain of Sri Lanka, predicts that Australia will win the forthcoming Test series against India. He asserted that the Pat Cummins-led team has a deadly bowling unit that can eventually put India under duress and that he believes the Australian hitters can handle the Indian bowlers.
“I believe the series will always be fantastic. I believe that the Indian circumstances, how the Australian batsmen approach them—they do have a pretty good bowling unit—and how the Indian batsmen approach them are all important factors. It depends on how each side performs in the first game of the series and who is gaining momentum. However, it would be fascinating, remarked Mahela Jayawardene in the most recent ICC Review.
Although it’s hard to forecast, as a Sri Lankan, I’m rooting for Australia to win. It will be difficult, but I think Australia will win 2-1,” he continued.
