Steve Smith Pat Cummins 4th Test captain
Smith took over in the third game in Indore as the visitors won by 9 wickets.

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy will begin on February 9, with Nagpur set to host the first of the four Test matches scheduled. Australia have qualified for the World Test Championships, and India need to win at least three games to guarantee a spot in the finals. Winning a Test series is difficult for any team, let alone Australia. The Aussies have won just two Test series in India, with the latest win being 19 years ago in 2004.

The Pat Cummins-led side are in India and sweating it hard in the net, as Cricket Australia regularly update the viewers with the latest happenings from the training sessions. In their latest video, they posted a featurette asking the players, ‘What’s tougher: An India tour or away Ashes series?’

To everyone’s surprise, most of the Aussie players rated playing in India as a tougher challenge than locking horns with England in England, which this side would do later this year.

In the video, several players talked about playing in India and their talisman batter, Steve Smith, stated that winning in India is bigger than the Ashes.

“Winning a Test is a big thing, let alone a series. I feel that winning in India is bigger than the Ashes.”

Further, Pat Cummins described the tour as winning an away Ashes and a career-defining moment. Another player who spoke along the same lines was David Warner, who said that beating India is the toughest challenge. Here is the video shared by Cricket Australia.

Cummins would be without Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc for the first Test, while India are without Jasprit Bumrah.
