Kapil Dev rightly said-“India has best chances of defeating Australia this time. This Australian side is most inconsistent that we ever had in recent times.” As India prepares to take on Australia in Australia, entire India waits to catch the exciting proceedings of the Boxing Day Test. Australia looks like a dwarf against experience of Team India at current tour. Our team has three great Test-Cricketers of World Cricket. If we compare the experience of both teams, definitely Team India has an edge.
At present, India is placed at 2nd position in ICC Test-Ranking, but Australia stands at 4th position. Our team will play in upcoming test series with Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and V.V.S. Lakshaman in the Side. They are top class batsman and master players of Test cricket. Quite in contrast, present Australian Side has only one quality player- Ricky Ponting. He has more than 12,000 runs in 158 tests by his name. If we add individual scores of all 11 players of Australian Cricket Team, It sums up to 27,422 runs (402 tests), while only two players of Team India, Tendulkar and Dravid, have scorred 28,254 runs (343 tests). If we add V.V.S. Lakshaman with Tendulkar and Dravid, our team has an experience of 36,880 runs with 104 centuries(473 tests).
Above said data proves that Team India can destroy Australian attack easily. Australians may resort to sledging but when Indian Trimurti gets going, Kangaroos will have no option but to surrender .Moreover, Sachin’s fan expect him to complete century of centuries during this festive season. So this new year, we should expect royal victory of India and Sachin’s milestone to add more colors to the festivity.
