Mumbai: Former Team India fast bowler Zaheer Khan believes that the match between India and Australia will be decided by the performance of the bowlers as both teams include some of the best bowlers in the world. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are in the Indian team, while Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are present in the Australian team. The Indian cricket team is in Australia for the entire series which includes 3 ODIs, 3 T20s and four Test matches. The tour will begin with the ODI series from 27 November.

Zaheer was part of the 2011 World Cup Winner Indian team, he said, ‘There is always good bounce and speed on Australian pitches. That is why I think the bowlers will decide the ODI, T20 and Test series as well as how the teams perform as a unit to stop the rival team on low scores. At this time when someone talks about the top level bowlers in the world, all the names that come in our mind will be on the pitch for this series.
Zaheer also said that India will face a tough challenge in Australia due to the presence of Steve Smith and David Warner. India had beaten Australia 2–1 on their home last time when Warner and Smith were not present in the team as both players were banned for a year in the ball tampering case.
