The Indian cricket team will take on Australia in a four-match Test series from 17 December in Adelaide to retain the prestigious Border Gavaskar Trophy. In 2018–19, India had a historic 2–1 away victory in the Test series on Australian soil to win the trophy. Pesar Jaspreet Bumrah was instrumental in India’s success in Australia.

Bumrah emerged as the joint highest wicket-taker bowler with Australian spinner Nathan Lyon in the Test series. In eight innings, Seamer took 21 wickets at an average of 17, including one for five wickets. He bowled one of the best spells of his cricketing career in the Melbourne Test with figures of 15.5-4-33-6.

Australian Pacer Josh Hazlewood understands this Bumrah There could be danger for their team, thus they feel that the Australian team will try to make them tired by dismissing them in the first few matches. If Virat Kohli & Co. wants to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Bumrah will have to weave his magic again.

“Bumrah is probably the standout. He is unique with his action. He maintains momentum well throughout the day and throughout the series. He is probably the key. He can take wickets up or from the old ball. I think it’s about having too many overs for him, try to make him tired in the first few matches. That will be the key, ”Hazlewood quoted India Today.

Australia-India rivalry with ashes: Josh Hazlewood

Speaking about India’s fast attack, Hazelwood said that the pace bowlers have improved a lot and the inclusion of Ishant Sharma will further strengthen the team. Notably, Ishant has not traveled with the team since he was hurt and is under the supervision of the BCCI in Bangalore.

He said, ‘He dismissed us for the last time. It went a long way for them in winning the series. They are mostly hideouts covered with their bases. If Ishant Sharma reaches here at some point, it will add to his strength.

“They are all slightly different. For the last 10–15 years, Indian pacers have improved. Our batsmen have to stay on their toes to compete. “Josh added.

Hazelwood signed off saying there was a rivalry between the two Australia And India’s match with the Ashes level and the last time India won their first Test series on Australian soil gave the Kangaroos a big shock.

“The Australia-India rivalry with the Ashes is there. India probably added it the last time they came here and won. This was some hard series. “

“We don’t lose a lot of series in Australia. It definitely hurt at the time. We know the people who were there at the time. I’ll remember that. It’s inspiring around this time,” concludes Pacer.
