Steve Waugh: India have a significant chance of beating Australia

Former Australia captain Steve Waugh became the latest to join the “India’s best hope to win in Australia” bandwagon, saying that it is a “significant chance” to win their first Test series Down Under.

“I will see this as a significant chance and they would have prepared for this tour for a long time, I think it’s going to be a really close series,” Waugh told ‘ESPNcricinfo’.

The series begins with the first Test in Adelaide on December 6.

India captain Virat Kohli is likely to be the biggest threat for the Australian bowlers, as they look to maintain their unbeaten record at home against the Asian giants.

Asked how how does Australia tackle the Kohli threat, Waugh said, “He is a great player and loves the big moment, a bit like Tendulkar and Lara.

They wait for these big series and that’s where they want to show their best. So who is the dangeman for Australia? They have got some really good batsmen, they have got a very good all-round team.”

Gilchrist was of the opinion that the Australian pace attack comprising Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood could pose tough questions.

“Virat is clearly the best player in the world at the moment. So India will look to him to score heavily but all are going to have their challenges and as too will the Australian batting line-up,” Gilchrist said.

The big-hitting batsman of yesteryear’s was of the opinion that the Australian pace attack comprising Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood could pose tough questions.

“I think Pat Cummins is outstanding, Hazlewood is almost McGrath like with his bowling. Those three guys and there are couple in the wings who are high quality fast bowlers.”
