Australia decided not to play a warm-up match before the Test series. The four Test series against India begins in Nagpur from February 9. Prior to this series, Australian starter Usman Khawaja shared some special information.
Bangalore. Australia opener Usman Khawaja, who has been very successful in recent years, says the Indian spin attack led by Ravichandran Ashwin will be the toughest challenge they will face in the four Test series against India which begins on 9 February in Nagpur. Khawaja, born in Pakistan, arrived here after the team due to a delay in obtaining a visa. He will open the tickets with David Warner. Khawaja has played limited overs cricket in India, but now he will get the chance to play Test. He was part of the 2013 and 2017 test squads.
Much will depend on Khawaja, who was recently named Australia’s Test Cricketer of the Year, for Australia’s performance. Australia in 2004. I haven’t won a test series in India since ’05. He said there’s a different feeling. There are no guarantees in this game, but there has been more maturity in batting and bowling. He said that we have learned a lot in the last ten years. Especially what kind of land would you get and I think now we can win Trials here. We are in a better position now, but the series will be very tough.
Australia decided not to play a warm-up match before the Test series. Instead, it was better to practice on spinner-friendly courts near Bangalore. They see Ashwin as the biggest threat and are taking the help of ‘duplicates’ to prepare to face him. Khwaja said that Ashwin is a cannon. He is very skilled and has variety that he uses very well. It will be a challenge to face it. The wicket will turn on the third or fourth day and bowl most of the overs. I have to see how I can score runs against him. He said if the wicket is good then it will be easier to play the new ball but if the spinners are handling the new ball when the wicket breaks then it becomes more difficult to bat in India.
