With India's tour of England coming to an end, there are rumors about his tour of Australia in November, where they will play four races and a limited series. If you believe Adam Gilchrist, the great Australian, the tour will be reflected in how the Australian replacements of David Warner and Steven Smith, who are in the midst of a year-old ban on the scandal of ball handling in Newlands, up and perform.
"It's a big setback to lose your top round scorers for a few years, to lose two people who have achieved a high percentage of your careers, so that will be the challenge for our guys against India," Gilchrist told ESPNcricinfo in Bangalore. "It's a great opportunity for some people to enter and fill the void, but they are great to fill and that will have a big impact on the series." The big challenge for Australia will be to get the races that their pacers and Nathan Lyon can defend. 19659002] "In retrospect and, no doubt, after the time that has passed, the general feeling is that the punishment was a bit harsh. But at that time everyone was really upset about that and everyone wanted severe measures to be taken. But what really impressed me is how fantastic the players have accepted it. They have shown the world of cricket that they know they did something wrong and that they have imposed a tough ban, but they have to go ahead and come back as better people and players. "
Of particular interest, Gilchrist thinks, will be the battle between Fast on both sides.In saying that, he has been impressed with the way in which fast bowlers from India have performed in England.
"In England, they have shown the potential to break the batting lineup," he said. Gilchrist. " And they are all fit, strong and aggressive men, so those are all the virtues that are needed to face Australia in Australia.
"And from an Australian perspective, we have (Mitchelle)) Starc, backed by Pat Cummins, who is outstanding, and (Josh) Hazlewood is almost (Glenn) McGrath with his methodical repetitive bowling, so there are three boys there , and there are also a couple of wings, the series continues, we are going to find out who has the best rhythm attack, and that is the most intriguing part of the series ".
Gilchrist was also empathetic with India's struggle to find a permanent wicketkeeper warrior after the retirement of MS Dhoni's Test in December 2014, but said Indian selectors should be cautious about how to choose and drop players.
He has seen Australia adopt the revolving door policy since the retirement of Brad Haddin in 2015. Australia has tried with Graham Manou, Matthew Wade, Peter Nevill and Peter Handscomb, before remembering Tim Paine. It is a mistake he expects India not to do, asking them to be patient with Rishabh Pant. So far, the 20-year-old wicketkeeper has scores of 24, 1, 0, 18 and 5 in five Test entries.
"It can take a bit of a dive and change, but if you beat players too fast, you can leave a psychological scar on their minds," Gilchrist said. "And that may limit his efforts to produce the best." So with luck [Rishabh] Pant has a good run with the side of the test.
"It's like when Shane Warne finished, he left a big hole in the team because to the quality of player and person that Shane was. And the same thing happened in India when the big batting four left. So they are not easy to fill, and Dhoni has been as good as anyone in the archer-batter category. "
