Harbhajan Singh, the veteran Indian cricketer, has picked India as favorites for the ODI series against Australia. According to him, if Men in Blue play even at 60 percent of their potential, they can wrap up the series 4-1. He further added that it is difficult to beat India anywhere in the world let alone in their backyard.
India had defeated Australia in Australia to win the maiden ODI series. Virat Kohli-led team won the three-match series by a margin of 2-1.
“India are the big favourites for this series, there is no doubt about that because it is extremely tough to beat this Indian side anywhere in the world let alone in India. And the team which India have selected is almost the side which will go to the World Cup,” Harbhajan told Sports Tak.
“India have the entire squad, there are no new players, and to defeat this team is really tough. Even if India play at their 60 per cent then also they will beat Australia 4-1 in the ODI series,” the off-spinner added.
He praised Jasprit Bumrah for the way he has bowled in the death overs.
“Jasprit Bumrah is also making his comeback and it would be a very big plus for Team India to have him as it is very tough to face his reverse swing when the ball gets old. It is a massive sign for India to have the full strength side. I believe the series will end 4-1 in favour of India,” Harbhajan said.
