Former cricketer VVS Laxman has put his weight behind the Indian team and is confident that Virat Kohli’s side will win a lot more games away from home especially in the Test format.
Team India has been on a roll in red-ball cricket ever since the emergence of its four-pronged pace attack consisting of Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav.
Last year India became the first team from Asia to win a Test series in Australia after outclassing them 2-1 in the Border-Gavaskar series with the likes of Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli emerging as the star performers for the visiting side.
Laxman feels the bowler attack is obviously the backbone of this team but also experience of the batsmen in overseas conditions is helping them immensely.
“There’s a lot of depth, not only in the bowling unit. There is now a lot of experience, class in their batting lineup. They will be a real threat and they will be winning a lot of overseas tours. Starting with New Zealand, I’m backing India to win,” Laxman said on the upcoming episode of India Today Inspiration.
Despite the team’s failures in recent ICC tournaments, Laxman backed India to lift more trophies in the coming future due to the winning culture that has developed in the squad.
“There is a culture which has been created within this Indian team. The culture to think like a champion. Results and trophies will come their way there is no doubt about it,” Laxman said.
