Whereas Australia are ready for a trial by spin in India they totally recognise the menace reverse swing might pose within the four-test sequence in opposition to Rohit Sharma’s males, touring wicketkeeper Alex Carey mentioned on Friday.
Spin discuss has dominated the build-up to the sequence between the world’s prime two checks groups, who meet within the opener in Nagpur on Thursday.
Australia batters practised on a scuffed-up pitch in Sydney earlier than flying to India and have since gathered a bevy of native spinners for his or her web classes in Bengaluru having determined in opposition to taking part in any warm-up matches.
Carey is about to play his first take a look at in India and the 31-year-old mentioned Australia weren’t oblivious to different threats lurking in these spin-friendly situations.
“Going to Pakistan, it was a lot of spin talk, and I found the reversing ball difficult,” Carey informed reporters referring to their sub-continent tour final 12 months.
“When I played a four-day game here in 2018 a lot of talk was about spin and you probably forget a little bit about how damaging both teams’ fast bowlers are with a reversing ball, and on wicket that might be a little bit up and down.”
Carey mentioned Australia’s batting line-up had sufficient expertise to deal with the challenges they may face within the sequence for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
“We are having the preparation in the game to ebb and flow between spin and fast bowling, dry periods and periods where we score quickly,” he added.
“I think what’s great about this team is the experience we have. There are players who have been here a number of times and players that are new, to be able to talk to other guys, what they’re doing, trust their game.
“I feel we’ll take pleasure in this and embrace this problem. It’ll be a giant, large sequence.”
