New Delhi: Former England fast bowler Steve Harmison has praised the Indian team, saying that the team led by captain Virat Kohli is like the Australian team of the year 2000. The Indian team took a 2-1 lead by winning the fourth match of the five-match Test series against England. After this victory in the Oval after 50 years, ballads are being made in praise of the Indian cricket team from all sides.
Virat’s army like the Australian team of 2000
Former England fast bowler Harmison, who was present as an expert in the ESPN Cricinfo ‘Match Day’ program, also praised Team India. He said, ‘India is far ahead of the opposition team in pressure situations, especially on the fifth day this team plays something different. This team is somewhat like the Australian team of 2000, which used to destroy any team. Me and VVS Laxman have also played against that team. Like that Australian team, this Indian team also has the power to win the match while coming back from adverse conditions.
Team India’s statistics are excellent
If we look at the performance of the Indian team in the last three years, during this time India has played 29 Tests, in which they have won 18 matches, lost eight and drawn three matches. During this time, the Indian team has also won two Test series against Australia by going to Australia.
Laxman also said this thing
Former Indian veteran Laxman was also present in the same event. He also agreed to Harmison’s point and at the same time Laxman told the excellent bench strength behind the strength of this team. Laxman said, ‘There are many such players in this team who are sitting on the bench at the moment but there is no dearth of talent in them. This is the reason that even if a player does not play for some reason, this team still has his best replacement.
