The Indian cricket team is on an Australian tour these days. A three-match one-day international series is to be played between the two teams from November 27, followed by a T20 series of matches, followed by a four-Test Border-Gavaskar series. Rohit Sharma will return to the team in the Test series, while he has been rested in the limited over series. Harbhajan Singh has said some important things about this India-Australia Test series, apart from this, he has explained why Rohit Sharma can prove to be important in this Test series.
INDvAUS: ‘This time the batsman and not the bowler will decide the result of the series’
The first Test will be played in Adelaide from 17 December, which will be a day-night test. After this Test, Team India’s regular captain Virat Kohli will return home on Paternity Leave. Regarding Rohit, Bhajji said, ‘Rohit Sharma is a quality player, he will have very high expectations, the fans will be expected to score as many runs as an opener in Australia, as much as he scored on home ground. If he stays at the crease for the first five overs, then it will be very difficult to get him out and stop, because he is a dangerous player. He plays cut, pull shots well, drives well, his back foot is also good. It should not be difficult for a batsman like him to score runs in Australia.

Bhajji further said, ‘It will be important to face the new ball, if they play it well then India can expect fast runs with the bat of Rohit Sharma, as Virender Sehwag used to do as an opener. Rohit is very important for Team India and I hope he will be fit till the first Test.
