Veteran cricket analyst, Mike Atherton has said that the Indian fast bowling unit can prove to be the game-changer in Australia. The wall of world cricket, Rahul Dravid, recently said that the current Indian fast bowling unit is the best that the country has ever had.

The Indian fast bowling unit, especially in Test cricket, has gone on to rule the world. The last 2-3 years have seen a rise in quality in the fast bowlers, and they have become the most lethal pace attack in the world. A glimpse of it was evident during their tour of Australia in 2018 when the India National Cricket Team won its maiden Test series in Australia as the sub-continent bowlers rattled through the Aussie batting line up.

Now, Mike Atherton has said that the visiting fast bowlers can be the turning point in the series against Australia later this year.

“What really should give India hope is the strength of the bowling attack. It’s very difficult to win in Australia without strong seam attack,” Mike Atherton said.

“One of the great things in the last few years about Indian cricket is seeing this sea change in terms of the quality of fast bowlers they’ve produced. When I played in India in ‘93, it was completely spin-based. They obviously had good fast bowlers back then but I don’t think it was of the same depth they have now,” he added.

The Men in Blue tour will begin with a T20 International match on October 11 at Brisbane. The other two T20I matches will be played on October 14 (Canberra) and October 17 (Adelaide). The four-match Test series begins on December 3 at Brisbane.

The visitors are then scheduled to play a day/night Test from December 11 to 15 in Adelaide. The third and fourth Tests will be held in Melbourne (December 26-30) and Sydney (January 3 to 7). The ODI series is scheduled to begin on January 12 in Perth, followed by matches on January 15 (Melbourne) and January 17 (Sydney).
