Mahela Jayawardene backs Australia to win the BGT by 2-1 against India
India is all set to host Australia for the four-match Test series. The first game between the nations will be played on February 9th in Nagpur followed by the second Test to be played on 17th February in Delhi. The third game between India and Australia is slated to take place on 1st March in Dharamshala whereas the last game will be played on 9th March in Ahmedabad.
While India is unbeaten at home since last decade, Australia under Pat Cummins is an extremely dangerous side to face as they are yet to lose a series, winning both at home as well as overseas. If the Rohit Sharma-led side wins the series then it is likely that both sides will face in the final of the World Test Championship as well.
With just a few days remaining before the start of the series, Australia is leaving no stone unturned in its preparations for the series. They prepared in Sydney as they prepared a rank tuner like Indian pitches and are getting used to the conditions there.
The Pat Cummins-led side has reached India and is undergoing preparations in full flow. They have hired some local Indian players as net bowlers, who possess similar bowling actions to the likes of R Ashwin and others.
They are yet to win a series in India since 1970 and it’s fair to say since the last few years India has dominated them, be it at home or away. However, with the kind of team Australia has, they can have a fair chance to win.
Mahela Jayawardene too has backed Australia to win the series in India. He said that the Pat Cummins-led side will win the series 2-1. Notably, Australia under Cummins is yet to lose a series.
