According to the former Indian batsman test team under Virat Kohli is the best Indian test team in terms of balance, skills, ability, and temperament. Under Kohli’s captaincy, the Indian test team has achieved heights in the game, currently, the team is at number one spot in World Test Championship. The highlight of the team’s success is the first Test series win in Australia in the 2018-19 hour.
I believe this team is the best Indian Test team in terms of balance, said Gavaskar
Gavaskar during the ‘India Today’s’ e-Conclave Inspiration series said, “I believe this team is the best Indian Test team in terms of balance, in terms of ability, in terms of skills, in terms of temperament. Can’t think of a better Indian Test team.”
Gavaskar praised the bowling attack of the Indian team
Gavaskar compared the current test team with previous Indian test teams and concluded that the current bowling attack comprising of Jaspirt Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and R Ashwin, doesn’t depend on conditions.
The former captain said, “This team has the attack to win on any surface. It doesn’t need any help in conditions…they can win on any surface. Batting-wise there were teams in the 1980s that were pretty similar. But they didn’t have the bowlers that Virat has.”
He added, “Definitely without a question, India has got such a varied bowling attack today and that is so essential. There is a saying that ‘if you don’t take 20 wickets you won’t win a match’. We have got the bowling to take 20 Australian wickets on 1 run less than what India has scored.”
I think we have also got the batting to be able to score more runs than Australians, said Gavaskar
Gavaskar also praised the batting line-up of the Indian test team he said, “You need to score runs also. We saw that in England in 2018. We saw that in South Africa in 2017 when we went there. We got 20 wickets every time but we didn’t score enough runs. But now I think we have also got the batting to be able to score more runs than Australians.”
