Jones sees no chance of Australia against India
Dean Jones, the outspoken former Australia cricketer, decided not to hold back while talking about his country’s chances in the upcoming high-voltage Test series against India.
Jones is of the opinion that the home side has little chance of beating India in the series slated to begin from December 6. He also believes the only way the hosts can do a bit well, if they let go “provoking” the India skipper Virat Kohli.
India, though the cureent number one ranked Test team in the world, do not have any good overseas records of late. They lost both the high-profile away Test series they played this year, against South Africa and England respectively. They also drew the recently concluded three-match T20I series against Australia 1-1.
However, the fact that Australia will be without two of their most important weapons Steve Smith and David Warner puts India in a better position, believes Jones.
Professor Deano opines that this is the best ever opportunity for India to record a Test series win in Oz, and if they fail this time, they will never do it in future.
Jones is well aware of the fact that India are not good visitors, but to him, Australia’s present situation is even worse. “With India’s history, maybe this series will not be a fait accompli. I do feel the result will go India’s way to the tune of a 2-0 or 3-0 result, as I just can’t see Australia winning a Test anywhere.”
