Former veteran Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar illustrated the current Indian test team playing under Virat Kohli’s captaincy as the best one ever. He said that the team has a perfect balance of lethal bowling attack, empowering the strength of the team.
Under Kohli’s captaincy, team India has reached the top of ICC test rankings and is the leading team in the World Test Championship standings.
During the ‘India Today’s’ e-Conclave Inspiration Series, Gavaskar said- “I believe this team is the best ever Indian Test team in terms of balance, in terms of ability, in terms of skills, in terms of temperament. Can’t think of a better Indian Test team,” Source: Times of India.
He continued and said what makes the Indian team stronger in the present scenario is “varied bowling attack” that can win matches on any surface.
“This team has the attack to win on any surface. It doesn’t need any help in conditions…they can win on any surface. Batting-wise, there were teams in 1980s that were pretty similar. But they didn’t have the bowlers that Virat has,” he added. Source: Times of India.
Illustrating the performance of world-class bowlers in the Indian cricket team, Gavaskar said- “Definitely without a question, India has got such a varied bowling attack today, and that is so essential. There is a saying that ‘if you don’t take 20 wickets you won’t win a match’. We have got the bowling to take 20 Australian wickets on 1 run less than what India has scored,” Source: Times of India.
Commenting on the current batting line-up, he said that the current Indian test team could score more runs than Australia, which is the leading ICC test team ranking.
