The turning track is all set in Jamtha and India can take the field with their spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja. Team India’s batsmen have also prepared themselves for spin bowling. Washington Sundar, Uttar Pradesh left-arm spinner Sourav Kumar, IPL star Rahul Chahar and wrist spinner Sai Kishore have bowled a lot to Rohit Sena in the nets.
Australia’s world-winning captain Aaron Finch retires, strong end to illustrious career
On the other hand, the Australian team has also left no stone unturned in its preparation. He has taken the support of Mahish Pathia, who is called a duplicate of Ravichandran Ashwin. In the Kangaroo team, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith are considered capable of playing spin well, but despite this, India had defeated this team full of bold players last time in their own ground.
If Ravichandran Ashwin will test the Kangaroo team with his ball, then the visiting team will be preparing keeping in mind the way Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav created a ruckus while returning to Bangladesh. Coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma will try their best to ensure that Team India wins the series. If he has to qualify for the final of the ICC World Test Championship, he will need a win at any cost. For this, Rahul Dravid and Rohit must have already woven the web of strategy.
Special eyes will be on Ashwin, because this dashing bowler has always made the Kangaroo team dance on his balls. The off-spinner has 89 wickets in 18 matches of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. He comes at number four in the list of bowlers who have taken the most wickets in this series. Ravindra Jadeja has taken 63 wickets after him. He has played only 12 matches. Both these players will be expected to make a big contribution not only with the ball but also with the bat.
