Australia’s star batter Marnus Labuschagne is eager to play a “lovely game of chess” with Ravichandran Ashwin during the Test tour of India next month after making the necessary adjustments to his game to compete with the master spinner.

India will host four games for Australia: At Dharamsala (March 1-5), Ahmedabad (March 9-13), and Nagpur (February 9-13), it hasn’t won a Test series since 2004.

Ashwin dismissed Labuschagne twice despite the fact that he won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia in 2020 and 21 with 426 runs at an average of 53.25. “I’ve changed some of my game because of what I’ve heard about Ashwin and how he bowled to me,” Labuschagne was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

“I’ve altered my strategy in an effort to defeat some of his ideas and methods. The chess match is going to be amazing, and I can’t wait. The 28-year-old said he started getting ready for the India tour right after the home series in 2020-21. “The preparation starts so far back,” Labuschagne, who is currently playing for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23, stated.

“Some people believe that when you first start thinking about Big Bash, but it takes a long time to think about it.” You start to think about everything and start to imagine every scenario that could happen to the bowler you’ll meet.

“I’ve already considered my strategies; The only thing left to do now is carry them out. accepting the reality that “that works, but that doesn’t work.” How can that feature be incorporated into my game? and just finish the puzzle.

Australia will hold a brief training camp in Sydney at the end of January. For the Nagpur Test, they should arrive in India seven days early.

The fact that it will determine Australia’s opponents in the World Test Championship Final in June, prior to their Ashes match against England, increases the significance of the four-match series. “Can’t wait, so excited for the next 10 Test matches,” Labuschagne stated.

“Our domestic dominance and fierce competition are well-known; We have done an excellent job; The challenge of playing against spin in India and the battle between Bazball and Ronball are both things I am looking forward to. However, it will be extremely difficult to play two series in a row away from home.”
