Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey has recently spoken on the Indian and Australian bowling attack ahead of the Test series which starts on December 17. Ahead of the four-match Test series, India and Australia play three ODIs and as many T20Is starting from November 27. In their last tour to Australia, India won the Test and the ODI series and drew the T20I series. In an interaction with Hindustan Times, Carey opened up on the bowling attack of the two teams.
While answering to a question from HT, Carey said that he understood how good the Indian bowling is with Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami in the mix. He further added that the presence of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins evens up the Aussie bowling line-up as well.

“David Warner and Aaron Finch at the top have had some success against the Indian seamers. We’ll discuss Bumrah and Shami… also Chahal and Jadeja and all the Indian bowlers but I’m also very excited about seeing Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc run in. We’ve got Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood too” said the Australian wicket-keeper batsman.
Alex Carey concluded by stating that both teams have an attacking line-up which sets up a good contest when the series starts.
“When you line-up both teams head to head you’ve got some serious players. We have regular meetings on what our strengths are and the areas that maybe we are exposed. India have got some real strength in the bowling department It should really lead to an exciting game one,” Carey concluded.
