Australia is always toughest sides in the world, after Virat Kohli’s absence, it is gonna be very difficult for India to win the series against them.
Last time India won the Test series for the first time in their history in Australia in 2018. Australia were missing their key players of Steve Smith and David Warner but this time around India will miss their skipper in Test matches.
Some former Cricketers already have declared Australia as favourite to win the series that’s too with ease. They think Australia are gonna with the series quite comfortably. They have nothing to really fight against just to defeat ordinary team India. Michael Vaughan terms Australian as favourite to win as well.
