Australia vs India 2018: Australia has Wounded Lineup, Best Chance for India – Brendon McCullum
Yet another cricketer makes his voice on upcoming Australia vs India 2018 series. This time, the former Kiwi skipper, Brendon McCullum has opined Indian team has got the best chance of winning the series in Australia. He feels the hosts have got inexperienced batting lineup, which certainly helps India to make the things happen. Meanwhile, history says India has always tried their best to yield success in Australia, but unfortunately, never tasted it. Also, on the previous tour, Virat Kohli’s heroics helped India come close but once again faltered when it mattered the most.
Team India is Flying Under Virat Kohli’s captaincy – Brendon McCullum
The swashbuckling opening batsman quoted Australia has got wounded batting lineup while India has got stalwart players. Further, he added saying the experience of Indians would help them win the series.
Speaking on the bowling department, Brendon felt Indian bowling attack also got the decent players in their ranks to dismantle Australian lineup. On the other hand, Australians also got the best bowling lineup, but he feels Indians can tackle them.
“Australia is under a bit of pressure for sure and they are low on confidence too. India is flying under Virat Kohli. He has got them playing brilliantly well. And perhaps this is a great chance to try and get a win down there. Australia in their own conditions are tough but at the moment they are a wounded line up and they will have to discover a bit of class in the next few weeks otherwise I would say India looks a bit too strong,” McCullum told India Today.
“I do not think so. Australia’s bowling is pretty strong but India’s bowling is suited to those conditions as well. I am not sure Australia’s batting line-up is strong enough to be able to handle that,” he added.
Well, as Brendon McCullum said, the experience in the batting department might make the difference at the end of the series. All in all, answers would be revealed in the coming few weeks of Test cricket.
