Rashid Latif, a former captain of Pakistan, believes that Australia’s second spinner could be their weakest link against India in the next Border-Gavaskar Trophy match.
For the Test series in India, Australia has selected four frontline spinners. While veteran off-spinner Nathan Lyon is a lock to make the starting XI, the other three visitors with slow bowling options are Ashton Agar, Mitchell Swepson, and Todd Murphy.

Australia will probably start with at least two spinners in most games of the four-match Test series, which begins on February 9. Turning wickets are anticipated during this series.
During a conversation on the YouTube channel “Caught Behind,” Latif reviewed the Australian slow-bowling possibilities for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and stated:

“The second spinner could be the weak link for Aussie, be it Mitchell Swepson or Ashton Agar. Against Pakistan as well, Swepson played in Karachi, where the Test was drawn. Australia won the Lahore Test because of Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins’ excellent bowling. Lyon will have to bowl well again.”
“I feel India will dominate the series against Australia”: Rashid Latif
India appears to be very strong on paper and has an excellent chance of winning the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Rashid Latif remarked.
“The Indian team appears to be more balanced. Rohit Sharma has not batted at the top of the order in many Test matches against Aussie. Shubman Gill is in good form, and Virat Kohli is present. So their team is excellent.”
“I believe India will prepare turning wickets in order to reach the World Test Championship (WTC) final. There will be stiff competition, but I believe India will win the series.”
On February 9, the hosts will play Australia in the opening Test in a four-match series, returning to the longest format of the game.
