Well, whenever Indian side travels for overseas tours, the first ploy that would be used by the hosts is to prepare a green top. Much to the same, Australia also came up with a green pitch for the impending second Test match against India at Perth. Meanwhile, Twittersphere registered their voice on the newly-laid pitch that was unveiled by WACA’s pitch curator.

Gone are those days when Indian team used to fear for the green and bouncy tracks. Although, India as a team hasn’t got a great record on those kinds of pitches.

However, this time, they look confident with skipper Virat Kohli being pretty positive this time around.

Both sides got world-class fast bowlers:

The Indian skipper Kohli feels that delivering on a lively wicket will help his fast bowlers, who are at the peak of their skills. He added that his bowling department had got the required elements to make full use of the conditions.

Further, Kohli added that the team is pretty excited to play on such a track rather than being nervous looking into it. It seems like the Indian team is pretty confident to make things happen on Perth wicket.

Speaking of the wicket, the renowned analyst, Harsha Bhogle said: ”First time at the new Optus Stadium in Perth. It is huge. Lots of talk from the locals about a bouncy track. Should be interesting.”

India got the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma in their ranks. If the pitch demands a swing bowler, they can even go with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who can be pretty dangerous in those sort of conditions.

For Australia, they will be relying heavily on Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood. The trio is touted as the world-class bowling unit.

Well, it is going to be an exciting contest for the fast bowlers when the game gets underway on Friday (December 14) morning at Perth.
