IND vs AUS: Jason Gillespie explains why he wants to see Virat Kohli-Pat Cummins battle in upcoming Tests

India and Australia will square off against each other in a four-match Test series, starting on February 9 in Nagpur.
This upcoming Border-Gavaskar series will determine the finalists of the ongoing ICC World Test Championship (WTC).

Former Australia seamer Jason Gillespie, who has toured India multiple times during his playing days, is excited to see Virat Kohli battling it against Pat Cummins on the Indian pitches.

In his recent interview with the Hindustan Times, Gillespie said that watching these two modern-day greats will be very pleasing as they are unbeatable when at the top of their game.

“I am really looking forward to seeing Kohli vs Cummins. That’s a fantastic match-up. It will be interesting to see how they go. When Virat comes out to bat, I would love to see Cummins take the ball and go at him straight away. That will be great theatre, two wonderful cricketers at the top of their game,” said Gillespie.

He also said that though Mitchell Starc could ‘reverse-swing’ the ball later in the day, India should also take care of the threat possessed by Cummins and Josh Hazlewood as the right-arm pair is equally good with the old ball.

“Starc is obviously a left-armer and does get it to reverse very late. But Hazlewood and Cummins are equally good. They can all have a real impact with the old ball,” added the cricketer-turned-coach.

Gillespie further showered praise for young all-rounder Cameron Green opining that he could be awkward for the Indian batters to face as he might reverse swing the ball as well.

“Watch out for Green too. He can be a really awkward customer for the Indian batsmen. I think we will see the ball reverse swinging in this series,” concluded Gillespie.
