Australia’s explosive opener, David Warner, stated that touring India is the hardest tour for the Australian team. It is noteworthy that England and Australia have been a part of the world’s greatest cricket rivalries when it comes to the Ashes.
However, David Warner reckons that it is the Indian tour which proves to be the hardest away tour for the Australians in the current scenario. India has gone on to become one of the greatest cricketing nations in the last 15 years, and now David Warner’s statement bears testament to the fact.
David Warner has clearly opined that to face India in India is the biggest challenge as everybody in the country is against us.
David Warner Maintains India’s tour is ‘hardest’
“I love playing against India in India, everyone is against you. It is the hardest condition for us to play in, you have more motivation to succeed,” Warner said during an Instagram live session with Indian opener Rohit Sharma.
In January 2020, the Australian side visited India for a three-match ODI series which initiated from January 14 at Mumbai. Australia started the tour on a high by beating the Men in Blue in the first ODI by ten wickets. However, team India bounced back in the second ODI and beat the Kangaroos by 36 runs at Rajkot. The final match of the series was set to be a decider, and the Virat Kohli-led boys won it by seven wickets at Bengaluru.
Team India Have Emerged As A Global Dominant Force
Team India has emerged as world-beaters in the last 5-10 years. They were earlier known to be flat-track bullies, but the Indian squad has evolved as a globally dominant force. Although they have failed to get their hands on an ICC trophy for a long time now, they have dominated almost every team they have played against.
A lot of credit for it goes to the Indian captains past and present including, Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni, and Virat Kohli. They have been watchful of young talent brooming in the Indian cricketing circle and have helped them grow over the years in world cricket. It has led to Team India’s dominance on the global stage.
