Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar has praised the current Indian test team stating that it is at its best under Virat Kohli’s leadership. Gavaskar especially praised the Indian bowling lineup as it has the calibre to win on any surface and track.
Indian test has been performing really well from the last couple of years and they are also at the top of the ICC World Test Championship with 360 points. The legendary batsman highly praised the lethal bowling lineup of the Indian team that has helped the side become the no.1 team in the ICC Test rankings. Gavaskar highlighted the turning point of the new Indian test team after their series win in Australia during 2018-19 tour.
“I believe this team is the best ever 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 said during an event.
Gavaskar said that the current bowling line up has a varied combination including the seamers and spinners that can adjust in any condition.
“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 1980s that were pretty similar. But they didn”t have the bowlers that Virat has,” the former Indian captain said.
Off-late, India has produced a bunch of world-class players with the ability to snatch the match away from the opponents. The likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been an integral part of the Indian team.
