In a recent event, Indian team’s head coach Ravi Shastri revealed that the current team led by Virat Kohli is “the best Indian team in 15-20 years” who has won many matches overseas. In reference to this, the former Australian captain Steve Waugh spoke that he is “not sure” whether the current Indian team is any better than the sides he played against during his days.
During his interview with the ESPN Cricinfo, he said: “Look I have played against some great Indian sides and I am not sure that the current side is better than the ones we played against”. Waugh is a former skipper, who is well known for his mental disintegration tactic, claims that it would be hard to beat the current Australian team in their home.
He also added that “Australia will be hard to beat in Australia. We have bowling attack as good as any team in world cricket and we can take wickets. It’s our batting if we score 350 runs in first innings, I think we will be very hard to beat. And someone will always come and do well and that’s the nature of the sport”.
He also complimented Virat Kohli for his consistency in playing comparing him with Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara. He said “Actually, India has quite a rounded team and they will this as a significant chance. They would have prepared for this tour for a long time. I think it is going to be a really close series”.
He also says that he is pretty confident that their team can win in Australia while speaking about the Test series starting on December 6.
