5 reasons Why Australia Can Retain The Border-Gavaskar Trophy


4. Depth in Bowling Attack

Depth BowlingThis time, Australian selectors have sent a squad that has all the bases covered. Test matches are won by teams that have the ability to take 20 wickets in a Test, and this Aussie bowling attack certainly fits that bill. They have the best bowling attack out of all teams that has visited India this season. In Mitchell Starc, they have world’s leading fast bowler who recently had a blasting time in Sri Lanka and has shown his reverse-swinging skills on Asian decks. Josh Hazlewood is an equally competent pacer and gets the old ball talking apart from the brand new cherry. Mitchell Marsh also bowls at a very decent pace.

They have good variety in spin department. Nathan Lyon and Steve O’Keefe were excellent in tandem at Pune and with one spinning the ball in and the other taking it away, they are not an easy nut to crack. They also have a very good leg-spinner in Mitchell Swepson, waiting for his turn. Jackson Bird is a great back-up in case of injury to Australia’s pacers. The Baggy Greens also have spinning all-rounders like Glenn Maxwell and Ashton Agar, who can walk in to the side, when needed.
