A 4-match Test series will be played between India and Australia.
The first match of the series between India and Australia will be on 9 February.
Melbourne. Australia’s former legendary wicketkeeper Ian Healy said that if the pitch completely favors the spinners on the tour of India, then the home team will have an upper hand, but if the pitch is good for batting and bowling, then his team will have a chance to register a win. . Both the teams will face each other in the four-match Border-Gavaskar Test series from February 9 in Nagpur.
Healy told ‘SENQ Breakfast’, “If they prepare a pitch that is good to bat on at the start and helps the spinners as the game progresses, then Australia will have a better chance of winning.” He said, “I am worried about (Mitchell) Stark and (Nathan) Lyon for the first Test. If the pitch there is like what we saw in the last tour, then the Indian team will be in a good position. At that time, from day one, the ball was taking unusual bounce and was coming to a halt. I think the Indian team is better than us in such conditions.
Only 5 Indian batsmen have scored centuries in every format, Sachin-Dhoni are not included in the list

Healy advised the young players of the team to bear the pressure and make fewer mistakes in fielding. He said, “I want the players to stand firm and face that pressure (from the local team) instead of running away.” He said, “You will get only 10 chances to take 10 wickets in India whereas in Australia you can make 13 chances with the bounce and pace of the ball. In such a situation, you can make a mistake in Australia while fielding, but in India it will be very expensive.
Australia has not won any Test series in India since 2004. After Nagpur from February 9, the team will play matches in New Delhi (February 17 to 21), Dharamshala (March 1 to 5) and Ahmedabad (March 9 to 13).
