Indian Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against Australia for a 4-Test Match Series in February 2023. Australia is set to play a Test Series in India after 2017. The Border- Gavaskar Trophy has been eluding from Aussies as they have lost 3 back-to-back Test Match Series (2 in Australia).
India has to make sure that they win the Test Series by 3-0 or better to stake a claim in World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final. The Men in Blue would be wary of the fact that Australia would come well-prepared and would be keen to end the drought of 18 years.
Rajkumar Sharma on ICC
Rajkumar Sharma was having an interaction with India News and was quite furious.
“Unless the pitches enter the ‘dangerous’ category where the players can get injured, I don’t think ICC would mind India making rank turners. If there are no neutral curators, it’s but natural that home teams will take advantage and prepare pitches according to their team’s strengths. So there’s nothing wrong if we prepare turners against Australia,” said Rajkumar Sharma.
Rajkumar Sharma on Australia
Rajkumar Sharma made some interesting comments on Australia. “Australia will be wary that we will prepare rank turners and they will come prepared. Their batters have played in these conditions and have an idea of how to tackle their spinners. They also have Nathan Lyon and a couple of other quality options so that could certainly be a stern test for India. We can’t take Australia lightly,” said Rajkumar Sharma.
“Just like Australia won the game in two days, even we can beat them in two days by preparing a pitch that favours our bowlers. That’s when they will understand how it feels when a home team takes advantage. South Africa’s loss has certainly helped India climb up in the table and I am convinced that we will win at least four out of five Tests to make it to the final,” he added.
