IND vs AUS: Winning Test series in India is bigger than Ashes, says Steve Smith

IND vs AUS: Winning Test series in India is bigger than Ashes, says Steve Smith

Former Australia captain Steve Smith spoke about playing in India ahead of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. He said the playing in India is a different experience all together and winning a Test series here is even bigger than Ashes.

“This Test series in India is definitely a very big series. I don’t know if this win in India is the final frontier, but I have never won there, despite being here twice for Tests. It is always difficult to play in India, we have some challenges but the players are ready for it,” said Smith.

However, at the same time when former Australian skipper said that winning Test series in India is bigger than Ashes, he also took the opportunity to criticize the Indian pitches. He said that it is better for his team to practice alone rather than playing practice matches on irrelevant Indian pitches ahead of the four-Test match Border-Gavaskar Trophy series.

Australia have decided not to play a single warm-up match in India during the month-long Test series, mainly because the host country provides grass wickets for practice while preparing spin-friendly pitches for the actual matches. Smith, who won the country’s best men’s player award for the fourth time in his career on Monday, said his team would be benefited more from a net session than a practice match.

The 18-member squad, led by Pat Cummins, held a camp on spin-friendly pitches in Sydney ahead of the series and will have a week’s practice in Bengaluru ahead of the first Test starting on February 9 in Nagpur. Both the teams have been sweating it hard in the nets, as this Test series is really important from the World Test Championship point of view. Where Australia is at the number 1 ICC Test Rankings, India is still at the second spot.

However, winning this Test series by 3-1 or 4-0 will benefit India and Men In Blue will pave their way to the WTC Finals.
