Melbourne: Australia’s head coach Justin Langer said that his fast bowlers have improved a lot in the last two years since the defeat in the Test series to India and that he will be a part of the Virat Kohli-led team in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Are desperate to see his performance against.
India defeated Australia 2–1 in 2018–19 and won their first Test series at home. Both teams are now ready to play on Australian soil again.
Langer (Justin Langer) said, ‘If I talk about that time (2018-19), we lost the toss in the MCG after winning the Perth Test match and I have seen the most flat wickets in Test cricket We lost the toss and he (India) bowled for about two days.
He said, ‘And then we had to play the next match in the SCG also on a flat pitch. There is no excuse, but it was very difficult then.
Justin Langer said, ‘India was at the top of their game, they were entitled to defeat us for the first time in history. But our players have improved in the last two years and many Indian players have also become more experienced. I can’t wait for this match ‘.
A trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are also expected to be the first choice in the fast bowling department this time but the selectors have options like James Pattinson, Queensland’s Michael Naser and Sean Abbott to select from the 17-man squad.
Pattinson, who replaced the injured Hazlewood last summer against New Zealand, is not experienced enough to have a red ball that was busy in the Indian Premier League, which ended in the United Arab Emirates recently.
Naser has not made his Test debut while he has been in the Test team for over a year, while Abbot has looked very good as a Test all-rounder in the last two years.
