Before beginning their tour of India, Australia made the decision not to participate in any tour games.
When Australia travels to India for a four-match series that begins this week.
They hope to end their streak of defeats in the Test series. The odds are stacked against them because it was only Australia’s fourth time winning a Test series in India when it happened in 2004/05.
Instead of participating in a tour game, the visitors would rather train in their facilities on doctored pitches to simulate the spinning conditions in India. The decision has sparked controversy, and Suresh Raina, a former Indian batsman, has stated that he is surprised by it.
I have participated in practice matches ahead of Tests, which are extremely crucial. Raina stated to PTI on the sidelines of the Mission Olympics Annual Day Meet.
Which was organized by the Police Families Welfare Society. “They (Australia) can understand the quality of pitches in India only if they play on them.”
The southpaw declared, “I am happy with Jadeja’s comeback after a long time.”
R Ashwin and Axar Patel, our spinners, are doing well. As a result of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s excellent play, I anticipate an intriguing series in the coming days.
Raina, on the other hand, stated that he would like to make any additional remarks regarding the players after observing how the first few days of the first Test went. Let it start off first.
A Test match ought to last five days. After watching the first day and observing the players’ focus, I will only comment on performance,” he stated.
After the thrilling 2017/18 series, the two teams will meet for the first time in India for the four-match Test series. In a series that featured a number of confrontations between players.
Most notably the captains Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, Australia defeated India 2-1 after shocking India in the first Test. On February 8, the first test will be held.
