The Indian team will face Australia in a 4 match Test series later this year. India will also be playing their first-ever day and night Test away from home. India has thus far only played just a single pink-ball Test match last year against Bangladesh. Bhuvneshwar Kumar believes that the pink ball Test against Australia will be challenging.
Bhuvneshwar told that the Aussies has experience playing with the pink ball in their home conditions. The pacer also rated Australia as one of the toughest teams in international cricket. India and Australia will be playing the pink ball match at Adelaide in the second Test match.
Pink Ball Test against Australia will be tough – Bhuvneshwar Kumar
“Everyone is excited for the series between India and Australia as after a long time, there would be a game to watch and also, we would be playing against one of the toughest opponents out there. It is going to be fun to play with the pink ball in Adelaide”, Bhuvneshwar said t ANI.
He also added that it would be a blessing in disguise for Indian players as they will reach Australia well in advance for their quarantine period. Bhuvneshwar also added that quarantine will help the team prepare better for the much-awaited Test series. Bhuvi also talked about the bowling attack of India which has always had the support from skipper Virat Kohli.
“Yes, the quarantine will help for sure in preparing better for those conditions. I do not know whether our bowling attack is the best or not but it is very good for sure because of every individual’s ability. You need the support of the captain through everything and Virat has always been helpful to each of us”, said Bhuvneshwar.
Meanwhile, the four-Test series between the two cricketing giants is all slated to begin from December 4 at Brisbane. Virat Kohli led his side to victory in the Test series in Australia in 2018 when they won 2-1. By doing so India became the first Asian side to beat Australia in a Test series away from home.
