Their prime batsmen are in type once more, and their bowlers will likely be have one other crack at a softened batting line-up.
That is not to say India are fully out of it, in fact. Every time they have been down this sequence, they’ve proved able to bouncing again. At 1-1 coming into this recreation, they’re nonetheless in possession of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. And 1-1 is all it will must be for them to carry onto it until the subsequent sequence. The highest order’s getting begins, fifties, and occupying the crease solidly during the last couple of innings – will a century lastly come from one of many prime three? Considered one of many intriguing questions for after we all know the reply to the massive one – have they got 12 males on their toes to placed on a teamsheet at present?
