Gilchrist backs Australia to bounce back at DelhiOctober 28th, 2008 - 6:55 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, Oct 28 (IANS) Adam Gilchrist has backed an under-pressure Australia to level the series against India in the third Test, even though he feels India will have an upper-hand at the Delhi’s Ferozeshah Kotla where the pitch is tailor-made for the hosts. Australia faced a crushing 320-run defeat in the second Test at Mohali to trail 0-1 in the four-Test series.
“There’s a great challenge there, but I’ve got no doubt our guys will come out fighting,” the former Australian wicket-keeper was quoted as saying in the Daily Telegraph during the launch of his autobiography “True Colours”.
“I am sure that the little bit of time-off they had enabled them to regroup and get their direction right, so I expect them to come out fighting hard,” he said.
“The wicket in Delhi is definitely tailor-made for this Indian line-up. I think Anil Kumble’s record there is impeccable, so there’s a lot of evidence to support India there,” he added.
