Team India, who toured Australia, will start their campaign with a one-day match on 27 November. Earlier, former Australian captain Michael Clarke said that if Indian captain Virat Kohli does not score a century before leaving the tour, India will face a 4–0 defeat in the Test series.
Kohli will return to India after playing the first Test match against Australia for the birth of his first child. Earlier, he would be seen participating in the 3-match ODI and T20 series.
The victory will make the way to the Test easier,
Clarke said on Tuesday that Virat will have to lead the team with his performance in One-Day and T20, so that Team India can get Momentum. If Team India Limited did not succeed in over cricket, then the difficulties will further increase for them.
He said that if this happens, India may have to face a crushing defeat in the Test series. I think in such a situation, there will be a danger of losing the series 4–0 to India.
Responsibility will be on Bumrah,
Clarke said that apart from Virat, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will have his eyes fixed in the match between the 2 best teams of the world. He said that like Virat, Bumrah will also have to put pressure on the host team by showing an aggressive game. Bumrah is the world’s No. 1 bowler in limited-overs cricket. Their success in the test together is not hidden from anyone.
He said that Bumrah has speed. His action is different. So they have to set a tone so that the rest of the bowlers are inspired by it and can help Team India win against Australia.
Without Virat, India are weak,
saying that Bumrah could succeed against David Warner and Smith. They look good against Warner. At the same time, he has also troubled Smith on the short ball. In such a situation, the competition between India’s 2 important players Kohli-Bumrah and Australia’s Warner-Smith can be interesting.
