Former India coach and veteran Australia captain Greg Chappell has said that India will depend heavily on Virat Kohli in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar series. However, India will take on Australia in the first Test of the four-match series at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur. While speaking to The Age, Chappell said that India are dangerous at home due to injuries to key players such as Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah, while saying that they will rely heavily on Kohli.

“Australia can win this series. India are more vulnerable at home than they have been for some time due to injuries to key players like Rishbah Pant, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah. They will rely heavily on Virat Kohli,” said Chappell.

“Visiting teams are often fooled by a game that seems to be going nowhere but suddenly changes at a frenetic pace. The Indians are used to this, so Australia will need to adapt quickly with mind, bat and ball. Attrition takes a huge toll on touring teams. If India are in the contest on day five, they will win,” Greg Chappell further added.

Team India have not lost a Test series to Australia in nearly a decade as well. After going down 1-2 in 2014/15, India won three consecutive series including two in Australia too as well. The two teams have shared a great rivalry, especially over the last two decades since India won in the iconic series of 2000/01. Meanwhile, Australia last played a Test series in India six years back and they will try to do well this time as well.
