Defeating India in India is not everyone’s cup of tea and the high spirited Australian team had recognised the importance of this fact. A number of teams have put up their best efforts to achieve this monumental feat but success hasn’t been achieved.

The BGT trophy starts from 9th February and the Australian team will be craving to do what seems improbable in pre tour assumptions. Captain Pat Cummins, Steve Smith, David Warner and a number of other players have defined the victory in India as the toughest task of cricket.

Yet in cricket, nothing is impossible. The numbers show that Indian team has won 17 test series in a row in India and every opponent has returned home with a loss a severely damaged high spirit. This has led to the point that the visitors must me prepared wrestle in every dimension of game to win the series.

In a video featuring the Australian players, the importance of BGT Trophy has come out. It [India] is a difficult place to win a Test match let alone a series. So if we are able to do that, it would be huge. I think if you win in India, it is bigger than an Ashes series [win],” Smith told

Veteran David Warner who could be playing his last test match against India said that he is looking forward to bat against toughest spinners in international cricket arena.Being a part of the last Ashes was fantastic but to go to India and beat India in India is the toughest challenge in Test cricket for us.“I’m looking forward to the tour, it’s always a hard graft. One thing that I’m looking forward to is applying myself against the best spinners in the world.”

Josh Hazlewood, one of the best bowlers in test cricket is set to miss the first test match against India. However, he has said that “Probably been long since Australia won there or less frequently we have won. In world cricket that’s everyone’s goal – to try and win in India.”

The left arm pacer Mitchell Starc is never intimidated by any opponent but he evidently understands that India is opponent that requires best of you to have an edge against them. Currently, the 300 wicket man is recovering from finger tendon injury. While talking to, Starc said, I think it has always been a crown jewel for Australian touring teams. It’s one of, if not the hardest place to play away… Such foreign conditions and how strong the Indian team are as well.“On one side you’ve got all this history of the Ashes and on the other you have this tour of India, which has been for many Australian teams out of reach.”

The undefeated captain of Australian test team will be looking forward to achieve what only Adam Gilchrist achieved as captain in 2004 tour of India. He said, “Winning a series in India is like an Ashes away series [win] but even more rare. It will be a career highlight, an era-defining series if we win out there.”
