Former England captain Michael Atherton has praised the current Indian bowling line-up. He stated that India have one of the best bowling units in the world. Impressed by the performance of the bowlers, he went on to say that the Virat Kohli-led team could defeat Australia in Australia.

“India have a great chance of going up against the Aussies because of the strength of the bowling line. It is not easy to win in Australia without a strong pace attack,” Atherton said on Sony Network for their show Pit Stop on their Facebook page.

Atherton lauded the Indian management for producing fast bowlers in the last few years.

“Indian cricket has changed a lot in terms of fast bowling in the last few years. I think this would help India while going Down Under for the Test series,” he added.

The English man further said that India’s batting has also improved and the top-order is going to play an important role in Australia.

“The top of the order is important in Australia. As soon as a ball loses its shine, batsmen can score heavily against the home team,” he added.
