Zaheer said bowlers will draw the result of matches in Australia series

Former fast bowler Zaheer Khan believes that the match between India and Australia will be decided by the performance of the bowlers. Both teams include some of the best bowlers in the world. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are in the Indian team, while Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins are present in the Australian team.

The Indian cricket team is in Australia these days, where it will play three ODIs, three T20s and four Test matches. The tour will begin with the ODI series from 27 November. Zaheer was part of the 2011 World Cup winning Indian team, he said, ‘There is always a good bounce and speed on Australian pitches. So I think the bowlers will decide the ODI, T20 and Test series. 

He said, ‘At the moment when someone talks about the top level bowlers in the world, the names that come up, all of them will be on the pitch for this series.’ Zaheer also said that India will face a tough challenge in Australia with the presence of Steve Smith and David Warner.

India had last beaten Australia 2–1 on their soil when Warner and Smith were not present in the team as both players were banned for a year in the ball tampering case.

The former Indian fast bowler said Sony Pictures Sports Network, the official broadcaster of the series, “Now that Steve Smith and David Warner are back in the Australian team, the Indians will definitely face a much tougher challenge from their previous tour of Australia.”
