INDIAN CRICKET

The rivalry has built up slowly: Allan Border on BGT

World Test

Allan Border, the former Aussie cricketer praised the Indian team for their high growth in the cricketing world. India sealed the spot in the World Test Championship Final. India will take on Australia again in The Oval in the finals. After the win in the Indore test, Australia becomes the first team to qualify for the WTC 23. Team India is the first team to qualify for the finals two times.

Allan Border’s words

 “Oh, most definitely. India does have the upper hand at the moment. They will get a chance, won’t they in England at the Oval when these two teams play in the World Test Championship final game at The Oval. So, it will be thrilling in itself to watch them go at it in a neutral country.”

Allan Border said

“But as you said, the rivalry has built up slowly but surely. There was a period where the Australians were very very dominant. Don’t forget we didn’t tour India all that often. Before I came in 1979, we weren’t here since 1969. So it’s a big gap between teams playing against each other. That’s how far India has come.”

Allan Border further added,

“I mean from short and fairly humble beginnings with their cricket team to just a world power and probably the world power financially, and with the cricket team put together, absolutely fantastic,” the Sydney-born legend continued. They’re winning games away from home, so I’m really looking forward to firstly, this Test match, and see how the series finishes and see how they battle in neutral territory at the Oval in London.”
