The Aussies showed a lot of grit against Bangladesh to level the series. They played out of their skins and against their nature to beat the Tigers in their own den. But, playing against India will be a different ball game altogether.
India’s spin trio of Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will have a crucial role to play in the series. However, the Australian Cricket Team has been spared to face Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin.
“I think the one-day group has played spin pretty well for a little while,” Steve Smith insisted. “Obviously, we are still learning in the Test format and trying to improve. We are coming from a challenging tour of Bangladesh.”
“The guys are learning and trying to improve,” he added. “Not sure that the ODI wickets will present quite as much as spin perhaps as some of the Test wickets. We have to wait and see and adapt to the conditions accordingly.”
