India vs Australia 2019: 5 reasons why India could win the series
#3 The Indian spinners could come into play at Kotla
The Feroz Shah Kotla wicket traditionally favours the spinners more with its slow nature and low bounce. It was here that Anil Kumble took all the 10 wickets in an innings in a Test match against Pakistan.
In such a scenario, the Indian team is better equipped than the Aussies to force a result in their favour. Besides, the dew factor is not likely to have the same impact as in Mohali which would bring the spinners into play.
At Kotla, Jadeja has been the most successful bowler for India having taken 7 wickets in 5 matches at an economy of 4.06. Both Kuldeep and Chahal are yet to play an ODI at Kotla.
At Kotla, India has a 60% success record having won 12 out of the 20 matches with one match ending in no-result. India has won the last 4 of the 5 matches played at Kotla.
The traditional nature of the Kotla pitch and India’s success record at the venue should favour India in the crucial decider on Wednesday.Published 12 Mar 2019, 16:08 IST
