Former England captain Michael Vaughan says India could face a whitewash in the four-match Test series against Australia if they lose the first match, which will be a day-night affair in Adelaide.
“India need to see Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins all over the country. The Pink Ball is unbeaten, and if Australia wins that Test, India will lose 4-0 to Virat Kohli for the next three matches, ”said Waugh, quoting Waugh.
Vaughan said Australia were a much more advanced side compared to the loss of Virat Kohli-led India, who toured the Under-2018s in 2018-19.
India was very strong in Australian conditions two years before Australia. They were scary. (Jaspreet) Bumra, (Mohammad) Shami, Ishant (Sharma) and (Ravichandran) Aswin, Val (Sedeshwar) Pujara’s bowling attack, he is the rock in the Indian batting line-up. They were very good for Aussies.
“The main reason I believe they are so good is that there is no Smith, no Warner, no Lapusackney. The Australians are a great Test team now. They caught the Ashes in England. Tim Payne is advancing as a Test captain,” he said.
