Greg Chappell believes Australia can win the upcoming high-profile four-match Test series against India because key players like Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah are injured.
Greg Chappell, a former Australia player and India coach, believes Australia can win the upcoming high-profile four-match Test series because India is “vulnerable” this time due to injuries to key players such as Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah. While the swashbuckling keeper-batter Pant is ruled out for the rest of the year as he recovers from injuries sustained in a horrific car accident, Indian pace ace Bumrah (back injury) is not included in the Indian squad for the first two Tests.
“Australia has a chance to win this series. Due to injuries to key players such as Rishbah Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah, India is more vulnerable at home than they have been in a long time. They will be heavily reliant on Virat Kohli “In an opinion piece for the ‘Sydney Morning Herald,’ Chappell wrote.
Ravindra Jadeja, a premier spin-bowling all-rounder who recovered from a knee injury and played in the Ranji Trophy last month, has been named to India’s Test squad for the series, which begins on Thursday in Nagpur.
