India vs Australia: Former Pakistani captain Shoibeli Akhtar believes that if India can win the series despite all the odds, it could be a huge victory for the visitors.
The stage has been set for what promises to be part of the 4th Test in Brisbane between India and Australia. There was a lot of drama earlier this month about the area and strict animal protection procedures where actors need to stay under them. But the venue will remain the same and after an exciting sixth trial in Sydney, the series has been rated 1-1 again.
The big news heading into the final Test of the series revolved around the tactics of Tim Paine and Steve Smith on the field on the final day of the Sydney Test, as well as the large number of injured players in the Indian camp. Quick thrower Jasprit Bumrah also fell under the injury footage as he reportedly suffered a stomach ache, while Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja were dropped from the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Former Pakistan captain Shovaib Akhtar believes that if India can win the series despite all the odds, it could be a huge victory for the visitors.
Akhtar said in his YouTube video that now in the final stages of the series, he thinks India has stepped in to win the series. Also, the final pressure, where they will face problems, they have a few injury problems, but the power on the Indian bench must believe they can do it, they need one last try and they can win this series.
Akhtar continued saying that If from this point on, India continues to win the series, that will be a huge victory. According to him, it will be the biggest victory of the series in Test history.
India are the only team standing on top to register to win the back-to-back series in Australia. Under Virat Kohli, the team made history in 2018-19 as they beat Australia on their ground for the first time in 71 years. This time, although they did not start well, rolling out 36 in the second innings of the Adelaide Test, the team showed great character to reclaim victory in Melbourne and strive to defend the impossibility of drawing in Sydney.
Akhtar also continued saying that if India wins this, and he thinks they will win, this will be one of the best Test matches India could have played or could play next week or more. He also thinks all the glory goes to India because they showed so many guts. The whole team, spinner, tail-enders, fast bowlers, Bumrah put all his energy into it, until he was injured, but he never let the series slip.
Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari, despite getting themselves injured in the game, they played and also batted out an entire session and also played 289 deliveries between the two of them in order to draw the third Test match in Sydney.
