2 Australian batters who may shine against Team India in Border Gavaskar Trophy series

The Australian cricket team have well and truly dominated the ongoing cycle of the ICC World Test Championship. They are on top of the points table with as many as 136 points so far.

Pat Cummins and Co have played 15 games so far wherein they have won 10 games, played out for a draw on four occasions and lost just once in the second cycle of the ICC WTC.

They recently locked horns with the South African cricket team in the three-match Test series. Australia won the first two Tests before the third game ended in a tie, which means that they still have a lot of work to do to churn out positive results in the Border Gavaskar Trophy series against Team India.

Australia have top-quality batters and bowlers at their disposal. They will be looking forward to doing well against India in the four-match Test series against Team India, with the first Test slated to be played on February 9 in Nagpur.
