World known cricket expert and former Australian cricketer Dean Jones believes that India is favourite to win in Australia this time around.
Currently the Australian Cricket team is going through a turbulent time with Steve Smith and David Warner banned along with young Cameron Bancroft the Australian batting looks very slim and this is the main reason why many cricket Pundits and fans are believing that this time India can finally achieve a test series win in Australia which they haven’t been able to done in the past as the Australian Cricket team in the past prove to be very strong for the Indian team.
But this time around at least on paper the Indian cricket team Looks far superior than the Australian Cricket team and this is the reason Dean Jones believes that this is India’s best chance to win a test series in Australia and he picks India as his favorites to win the series.
He also asked the Australian selectors to bring Peter handscomb back in the test squad as he is a good player and plays spin very well.
He picks Ravichandran Ashwin as the main threat to the Australian batters.
Speaking to the International Business Times he said “I’m expecting Ashwin to have a major series. He had a good series last time when India were here and had he played in that first Test in Adelaide India could have won the series. India have a good chance they have never won a Test series over here and if they don’t this time around I would be surprised”
He also wants the Australians selectors to pick Marcus Harris as the opener as he has scored the most number of runs in Sheffield Shield cricket in the past few years along with Matthew Renshaw. He said that he would like to see Aaron Finch batting at number 5 in Australia.
