Australia is scheduled to tour India for a four-match Test series. The tour will be crucial for both sides to confirm their place in the World Test Championship 2021-23 final. The Australian team under the leadership of Pat Cummins has been sensational both home and away. The Australian team has won a couple of Test matches in the subcontinent last year, winning a series in Pakistan and drawing against Sri Lanka.
Speaking ahead of the India tour, legendary wicket-keeper Ian Healy has said Australia has a good shot of winning if India produces reasonable wickets, unlike the 2017 tour.
During a recent chat on Senq breakfast show, Ian Healy said, “If they get flat wickets that India used to put out, nice flat batting wickets and bowlers have to work really hard, I think we can do it.”
Australia last toured India in 2017 for 4-match Test series and started with a win at Pune that sent shockwaves through the Indian cricketing community. However, Virat Kohli and his men played a spirited series and won by the margin of 2-1.
The team from down under hasn’t had a good record against India in recent times and the Pat Cummins side would look to change that. The team will be tested in the spin conditions of the subcontinent as they faced in Sri Lanka.
Talking about the turning tracks, Ian Heally said, “If they produce unreasonable wickets like they did half the series last time (we won’t win), two wickets were just terrible, unfair, spinners jumping over your head on day one. They’ve got a good team but I’m not too scared of their spinners unless they produce unreasonable wickets.”
