Our left-handed hitters also have to play carefully. He said that there is a part of the field that is very dry.
Smith said that “other than that I can’t really gauge it well. I don’t think the wicket will bounce much, I think it will be quite slippery for the fast bowlers and as the game progresses it will grow.” , it can be a little up and down.”
India can make good use of its ammunition of spin-friendly subcontinental conditions and world-class spinners like Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Axar Patel to tame these two giants throughout the series. We tell you that the last time Australia played a series in India was in 2017. India won 2-1 in this series.
