Watch: David Warner's insane batting practise to tackle spin; bats left-handed then switches right-handed in nets
The first match is scheduled to take place in Nagpur on February 9. Australia reached Bengaluru on February 1 and began their four-day training camp. Australia has won its last four test series against England, Pakistan, the West Indies, and South Africa.
Thus, they will pose a big challenge to India. Although, Australia faced defeats at the hands of the Indian team in the last two BGT series, which makes this series more spicy. Australia needs to win to maintain their dominance, while India needs to win to secure a place in the WTC final.
Meanwhile, both teams have some big names in their camp, which makes this series more exciting. One of the big names in the Australian camp is the veteran opener David Warner, who recently scored a brilliant double century against South Africa in his 100th test match.
He will be eager to make his mark in the test cricket against India. Warner hasn't had good performances in tests in India. And to make it this time around, the southpaw is having some intense batting sessions. A video is circulating on the internet in which Warner is seen batting left-handed and then switching to bat as a right-hander at the nets.
Earlier, in an interview with Sky Sports, Warner said that it will likely be his last year for international cricket and that he wants to play the 2024 T20 World Cup as his last major tournament. He will be crucial for the visitors at the top of the order for the upcoming series.
Notably, his numbers aren't good against India or in India. He has played 34 games against India across formats and scored 1149 runs at 33.76 with four centuries and three half-centuries. In India, he has played 16 innings and has only scored 388 runs at 24.25 with three half-centuries.
