IND vs AUS 2023: ‘We don’t want to lose the Border-Gavaskar series again..’, says Marcus Stoinis

Possessing lost the Border-Gavaskar sequence twice in a row now in 2018 and 2020, that as well at residence, Australia fear losing it for the 3rd straight time as they put together to acquire on India in the 4-match Exam collection that commences on February 9th in Nagpur. Marcus Stoinis, just one of Australia’s mainstays in white-ball cricket, claimed the Oz wouldn’t want to experience the exact destiny this time, adding they are self-assured of breaking the ice of defeating India in India in a Exam collection with the squad they have. Speaking to ANI ahead of the start of the marquee Border-Gavaskar collection, Stoinis reported, “We do not want to drop our trophy this time even although our staff by no means wishes to shed it as it could be the third time but we never want to give up this yr.”

Agreeing to the simple fact that going through India in their home circumstances is hardly ever effortless presented how nicely their ace spinners – Ravi Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja fare in these conditions, Stoinis opined the turners in their ranks are planet class too and are able of providing a tough time to the Indian batters.

“Our squad is as well powerful and facing India on their soil is a little bit hard as we have to perform on spin tracks above there. India have some expert bowlers like Ashwin and Jadeja. They can really bowl effectively but we are also coming with some expert spinners, so you can be expecting a superior level of competition this time,” Stoinis mentioned.

Speaking highly of Virat Kohli, with whom he has performed some cricket in excess of the several years, the all-rounder said he (Virat) will be the greatest threat to the Aussies as he thrives to do properly versus much better oppositions. Considering Kohli’s pathbreaking file versus the Aussies across formats, the correct-handed batter could be a thorn in the flesh for the website visitors.

Having said that, a person participant whom Stoinis assume would have actually designed a distinction was former his Delhi Capitals teammate, Rishabh Pant – who is at this time having treated just after struggling a street incident in December past yr. Stoinis even wished the Indian keeper-batter a fast restoration.

“Kohli is a earth-course batsman and has returned to form and he is 1 of the best Exam batters, so he could be the most significant threat once once again for us. But one participant who will be missed this season poorly is Rishabh Pant. He is however not with the staff. I wish he recovers soon and comes again to the area,” the all-rounder claimed.

The Australian workforce is anticipated to land in India a 7 days ahead of the start out of the initial Check.
