Australian all rounder Mitchell Marsh is vary of the threat of India in India when they are playing a test series. Though Australia has comprehensively defeated and humiliated the home side in the first test at Pune, he is confident that Virat Kohli and co. will come and hit them with all their force in the remaining matches.
One more advantage to the visitors going onto the second test match is that they have a better winning percentage at Bangalore than home team India. Australia has 40% winning percentage while India has less than that. It will surely bolster Aussie confidence which is already sky high.
“This team India will certainly come hard at us. We are expecting a great fight and although we are 1-0 up in the series, it’s going to be game on. We will want to continue our winning ways at this ground. And hopefully that would be the case in six days of time,” Mitchell Marsh said.
Mitchell Marsh was delighted after his team’s historical heroics in the first test at Pune. He said that it was the best away victory ever in which he has been directly involved. He hopes to continue their current momentum throughout the second test and go on to win it like the opening one.
He’s one of the best bowlers in the world, if not the best bowler in the world, He’s certainly the best reverse swing bowler in the world. In these conditions, whilst all the talk has been about the spinners he’s still our biggest weapon, I think. It’s great if he’s in the Indians’ heads, hopefully, he can take a few wickets for us,” Mitchell Marsh added.
After this Bangalore test match, both teams will travel to the north India to play their remaining two test matches in the Border Gavaskar trophy. Third test will be played at Dhoni’s hometown Ranchi followed by a cold weather fourth test in the deep valleys of Himalayas, Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh.
