The Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar feels that in upcoming India vs Australia tour will be challenging even though the star players of Australian Cricket Team David Warner & Steve Smith are absent.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar also feels that no overseas tour is easy. He said that the Australian tour will be challenging and no tour is easy. This tour will be challenging because when you play outside your home country you need to adapt to certain conditions. It won't be easy for bowlers as there is hardly any movement these days.
Australia will be without the services of David Warner and Steve Smith as both are serving a one-year ban for ball-tampering during the team’s previous visit to South Africa.
The absence of David Warner and Steve Smith will affect Australia on this Bhuvneshwar said that he cannot say that we will overcome them. They don't have the two batsman: Smith and Warner, who have done well over the years but there are other batsmen in their place and it is not that they aren't good.
The Uttar Pradesh fast bowler added that it is their home conditions and for us if the two: Smith and Warner were there, it is a challenge, now they are not there, it will still be a challenge.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar also said If it would have been easy, we would have always won the series (in the past). It won't be easy. Their preparation in the practice matches there will matter.
Bhuvneshwar has been on rest for the first two ODIs against the West Indies. He played 92 ODIs and 21 Tests, lauded the rotation policy of the team management.
The right-arm fast bowler said that the way fast bowlers are managed, the rotation policy is in a way good, as we get a break and others get a chance and the body remains fresh. He stressed the need to have breaks.
He said that Breaks are needed after you play a long tour. You are mentally tired like Jasprit Bumrah said when you return you are fresh and are raring to go. Hence when your body gets tired breaks are needed.
