Australian team ruthlessly won all the five Tests by cleaning up Pakistan and New Zealand. The way Australian boys performed made the Australian skipper Tim Paine proud. By this series Australia reached 64 points which is almost close to India who are much near to top of the ICC Championship table.
By the next summer there will be a big entertainment and anxiety in the India vs Australia series which makes difference in point table. India visited Australia in the last summer too in the absence of David Warner and Steve Smith and won their first ever series. But this coming summer it is going to be different as Marnus Labuschagne and two senior pros total of three and it was last time around.
Paine in an interview said that “ What India played against last year is different and this year it is not so easy as we are definitely not same as earlier”.
“ I think both India and Australia are gazing on each other off the final which is surely going to be critical as these are to be on the test championship point table. If we continue to be so competitive then it is going to be an awesome series.”
We can see the nature of series with 2-1 which India had won. With a narrow loss of 31 run at Adelaide Australia could have win the match if they batted well with care. Hence Paine this time in squad and is much sure that his men will be careful about taking up the responsibility in playing lead roles at such tight situations.
Paine said “ In test series against India we might have capitalized but in such cases as we will be in a situation of wanting it too much or putting lot of pressure on ourselves and trying too hard, we let it slip out sometimes.”
“We are in such moments which are very big and we focus on executing our roles perfectly.”
