Ashwin, Jadeja, Axar or Kuldep? Who will play first Check vs Australia? KL Rahul Drops BIG Trace – Examine


Indian batter KL Rahul stated that there will likely be stress to area three spinners in Nagpur for the opening Check of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match in opposition to Australia. From February 9 onward, the primary Check match between Australia and India can be performed on the Vidarbha Cricket Affiliation Stadium. “There will be a temptation to play three spinners. We are playing in India, where pitches are going to spin. But it is still early to know what the pitch is going to do exactly,” stated Rahul in a pre-match press convention.

Rahul stated that the batters have labored on taking part in spin and admitted that the sequence is a must-win for India as they’ve their eyes on the World Check Championship (WTC) last.

“We have worked on playing spin. We know how pitches are going to be there in India and what to expect. So keeping that in mind, we are practicing. Each of us have individual plans, everyone wants to play their own way, which has been discussed with the group,” stated Rahul.

“It is a must-win series. When it is India versus Australia, both teams want to win and it is a big series. It is no different than any other Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. We do realise that we want to play the World Test Championship final. But we also want to stay in the present and take it one game at a time,” added the batter.

Rahul admitted that reverse swing goes to play an enormous function within the sequence. “Reverse swing has played a huge role here historically as we have seen it (during the England series in 2012-13 which India lost). Any team with quality fast bowlers who can exploit the reverse swing can be dangerous here. As a batter, you also try to prepare for it. Australia has always produced high-quality fast bowlers and we know the threat that they can pose, be it with the new ball or the old ball which starts reverse swinging. It is the beauty of playing against top teams,” stated the batter. 

Rahul stated that since there are many left-handers on the Australian aspect, the bowlers is not going to wrestle with their line and size.

“Bowlers will be at the advantage with so many left-handers. When there are so many left and right-handed batters, bowlers struggle to adjust their line and length. It is unique, I do not think any other team has so many left-handed batters,” stated Rahul. Describing the pitch, Smith was quoted as saying to reporters, “Pretty dry, particularly one end.”

“I think it will take a bit of spin, particularly the left-arm spinner taking it into our left-handers. There is a section there that is quite dry.” “Other than that, I can not really get a good gauge on it. I do not think there will be a heap of bounce in the wicket, I think it will be quite skiddy for the seamers and maybe a bit of up-and-down movement as the game goes on.” “The cracks felt quite loose. I am not entirely sure – we will wait and see,” concluded Smith.

Australia’s final tour of India was in 2017. India received that sequence 2-1.

India is the present holder of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after profitable the sequence in Australia in 2020-21. The sequence will consist of 4 Check matches.
