The end of the year is set to experience one of the toughest battles in the field of cricket. The ruthless Indian team will take on the powerful Australian team at the latter’s home ground. India’s tour of Australia will begin from November 27 with three ODIs and several T20Iw. After a limited-overs clash, the two teams will play horns against each other for four Tests, the last nail in the tour coffin.
As we get closer to the marquee series, fans and experts are offering their opinions on social media.

Mark Taylor bat for William Pukowski as opener
The former opener carries himself with a truck of experience that makes his opinions in the cricket fraternity important. Mark appreciated the young gun Will Pokowski Calling him ‘a player for the next decade’, the 56-year-old said his consistent performance with the bat for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield makes him the first choice opener.
Setting two big double centuries for his home team, the budding talent looks like a powerhouse of ability without a shadow of doubt. In particular, the young Turk has become very strong after taking a restful time for ‘mental health’ reasons. “He has been open and honest about the term, which is not always easy,” Taylor quipped. Subsequently, he strongly believes that the 22-year-old should open the innings for his national side in the upcoming Test series starting on 17 December.
Also, his squad made another surprise appearance as Cameron Green. Over the years, he has performed well in the domestic circuit as an all-rounder for years.
