VVS Laxman believes that India hold the edge

Former India cricketer V.V.S. Laxman has backed the current Indian team to prevail over the visiting Australians in the upcoming limited-over series, reports Zee News.

Laxman, who was the proverbial thorn in the flesh for Australia, said that he was backing the Indians because they seemed to be hungrier for success as compared to their counterparts.

“There are lot of talented cricketers in the Indian side who are eager to perform. The upcoming Australia series at home will be a good test for them. I think India are favourites to win the series. have the fire power to do it,” said Laxman while speaking to reporters at an award function in Gurgaon on Tuesday night.

India and Australia will be playing seven ODI’s and one T20 starting with the T20 on October 10.

On the question of Yuvraj Singh and his return to the national side, Laxman said that the issue was always just a matter of time and a question of “when” and not “if” he would return.

“Yuvraj`s return was expected. He is such a class player. You can`t keep him out for long. He has lot to contribute to the team. He worked hard on his fitness and reaped benefits during the India `A` series and the Challenger Trophy,” Laxman said.

“I am sure India will gain with his presence in the Australia series,” he added.
