Former Australian Cricketer Brad Hogg Has Recently Been Asked To Name A Team That He Thinks Will Defeat India At Home. In His Response, The Former Left-Wing Spinner Said That He Believed That Pakistan Could Be A Team That Could Defeat Kohli-led India In India:
Defeating Virat Kohli-led India in their home conditions was not an easy task. After the right-handed batsman took charge of the Test Team in 2014, India has not lost a single Test Series at home. India’s last test series defeat was against England back in 2012, before Kohli was elected captain of the team. After then, India has won 12 straight test series at home. India has a strong record in the ODI’s as well.
After Kohli was elected captain of India’s ODI in 2017, India won 7 series at home, losing just one against Australia at the beginning of 2019. Yet India bounced back later, defeating the West Indies and Australia at home in the ODI series.
Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg has recently been asked to name a team he thinks will defeat India in their home conditions. In his reply, the former left-wing spinner said that he believed that Pakistan could be one team that could do so.
“Alright, I think Pakistan will be the best team at the moment because they have a really powerful pace unit and some decent spinners. We have got deep into their fights and know the Indian conditions very well, “Hogg said to the leading sports website.
However, owing to the political tensions between the two nations, the two teams do not have bilateral cricket relations. In such a situation, Hogg claims that Australia could be the next best team that could have caused an upset against India in front of the home crowd.
“But they can’t go over there for policy purposes, so Australia is the next best thing, so I’m not being biased. We’ve got the likes of [David] Warner, [Marnus] Labuschagne and Steve Smith. We’ve got a really strong batting line-up as well as a bowling line-up, “Hogg said. “I think if there is any chance of us beating India on Indian soil right now, it’s going to be over the next couple of years,” he further added.
