India’s legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar said the current Indian Test team under Virat Kohli as the nation’s best ever. The prime aspect that makes the team more balanced than the teams of earlier eras is the bowling attack. India is currently in top spot in the World Test Championship standings. Gavaskar said during India Today’s event that he believes the current team as the best ever Indian Test team in terms of balance, ability, skills and temperament. Gavaskar feels the stand out feature of the current team is the varied bowling attack that gives an edge over other teams.
He also added saying the team has the attack to win on any surface since Virat has a balanced team that can perform in all conditions. Speaking about the bowlers Gavaskar said India has got such a varied bowling attack today and that is so essential. Gavaskar said confidently that we have got the bowling to take 20 wickets within the target imposed by India.
Shedding light on the current batting line-up Gavaskar said the Indian Test team can very well score more runs than other teams. He mentioned scoring runs is important in Test cricket as to previously India was able to take 20 wickets in England in 2018 and in South Africa in 2017, but wasn’t able to score enough runs. But now he thinks India has got the batting to score more runs than even the Australians.
