“India will have to fire that trio of Mitchell starc, Josh hazelwood and Pat cummins, they have to annul the new Kookaburra ball. If not, Australia will prove too strong and powerful. The pink ball test is the key to the series. Yes Australia, as they usually do in the Adelaide day-night event, has never been beaten with the pink ball. If Australia wins that Test match and then India loses virat Kohli for the next three, this could be 4-0 for Australia, “Vaughan said according to CricBuzz.
Vaughan said Australia is a much improved team compared to the one that lost to India led by Virat Kohli who toured Down Under in 2018-19.
“India two years ago was too strong for Australia in Australian conditions. They were phenomenal. (Jasprit) Bumrah, (Mohammed) Shami, Ishant (Sharma) and (Ravichandran) Ashwin’s bowling attack, the Wall (Cheteshwar) Pujara, he was the rock in the Indian batting lineup, they were too good for the Australians.
“The main reason I think they were too good was that there was no Smith, no Warner, no Labuschagne. The Australians are now a better Test Match team. They held on to the Ashes in England. Tim Paine is improving as Test- captain of the game, “he said.
