Former Australian Cricket Michael Hussey said that it is not easy for any batsman to play Tests on Australian pitches. But, Rohit Sharma's style and ability to play is quite different from others. They will have no problem here. The Indian team is scheduled to play 4 Tests and 3 ODIs in Australia in December-January.
The first Test of the series will take place in Brisbane on 3 December. The two teams will then play Boxing Day in Melbourne on 26 December and New Year Test in Sydney on 3 January. After this, the first match of the ODI series will be held on 12 January. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has allowed only 25% of the audience to attend the stadium due to Corona.
Rohit had scored 3 centuries in the previous series
All eyes will be on Rohit in this series, as he scored 3 centuries including a double century in the 3 Test series against South Africa in October. In this series, Rohit made his first Test opening. However, he could not play against New Zealand in February due to injury.
No doubt about Rohit's ability
Hussey said, "I believe he (Rohit) has batted in top order in many ODIs. Recently he has also proved himself in Tests. In all, he has received considerable confidence. I have no doubt about his ability. He will handle this Australian situation quite well. "
Fast bowlers can be difficult
Hussey said on the Sony Ten show, "It won't take time for Rohit Sharma to adapt to the Australian situation." The only difficulty would be for the fast bowlers. "He said," It will be difficult for Steve Smith and David Warner to return against India after two years. In 2018, Smith and Warner were banned for a year due to ball tempering.
