INDVAUS: Team India will play practice match on tour, Rahane confirmed

Indian cricket team management has understood the importance of playing a practice match before the tough foreign tours. Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has confirmed that India will play four-day practice match before the three-match series on the tour of Australia. The Test series between India and Australia will be played from December 6 next month. The Indian team did not play a practice match before the tour of South Africa, after which Virat Kohli and Company lost a golden opportunity to win the Test series. After this, the team was not able to practice properly before the England tour and the result was found in 1-4 in the Test series.Rahane said in the sports literature program organized by Odisha state government, “When you talk about South Africa tour, it is very difficult to play a practice match if you reach the match 5-6 days earlier. In Australia, we will get 10-15 days, that’s why a 4-day practice match has been planned. It is certain that time will come, then practice matches will definitely play. ‘
He said, “I have faith in my ability that I can bat long enough. The Australia team can not say anything beforehand, even if David Warner and Steve Smith are out of the team. I think we are strong on the tour of Australia but when a team plays on the home ground, then they have a better understanding of the conditions. ‘

30-year-old Rahane said, “Australia’s bowling is strong and it will be a great tour. Young Indian pacer Jaspreet Bumrah can prove to be an X-factor for the team because they always have the ability to take wickets. ”
Rahane has been struggling for a long time in Test form and in the last two years he has only 1 Test century. He said, “Sometimes there is a time when you can score 20-30 runs and want to score. It is important that you stay mentally strong too. It feels bad when you can not do better for the team. I was disappointed when I was not selected in the team on the tour of South Africa. Then I took the Johannesburg Test as an opportunity, and playing 48 there was no less than a century for me. “
