Michael Clarke unhappy with Australia’s decision for Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India

The Australian cricket team is all set to tour India for the much-awaited Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023, which is set to begin from February 09 in Nagpur. World Test Championship (WTC) Final.

in particular, led by Pat CumminsAustralia have continued their dominance down under and have done wonders in the subcontinent as well. However, playing in India has always been a challenge for the Aussies as they have a terrible record here. They last won a Test match on Indian soil in 2017 when spin played a major role in their victory. left arm spinner Stephen O’Keefe Player of the match after taking 12 wickets.

Australia has great spinners Nathan Lyon for the upcoming series, but it will not be an easy task for him. Meanwhile, former Australian captain Michael Clarke has said that the Australian team is not well prepared for the upcoming Tests and they should have decided to play warm-up matches, which would have helped them get familiar with Indian conditions. Clarke agreed that playing limited overs matches in India is completely different from Test matches.

“That’s the part I don’t understand – no-tour games before the first Test in India. I hope I’m proven wrong, but I think this is going to be important. Batting in those conditions in ODI and T20 cricket is one thing, batting in Indian conditions in Test cricket is a whole different ball game. Clarke was quoted by the Big Sports Breakfast on Tuesday.

Clarke observed that Australia would need a completely different plan in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as both reverse swing and spin are going to be a big factor in India.

“You need a completely different plan to what you are playing in Australia, the way you start your innings against spin bowling, the way you play reverse swing, during the Australian summer We didn’t see any reverse swing, the game was over in that. 2-3 days. So reverse swing is going to play a big role (in India), all these batsmen who get out and play 130-140 bowlers – there is every possibility that India are going to play at least two spinners , so it’s a completely different game. Clarke added.
