Australian opener Joe Burns said on Thursday that the experienced Indian bowling attack would prove dangerous for the hosts’ batsmen during the upcoming four-match Test series starting on 17 December. The last time India toured Australia, it won the first 2–1 Test series on kangaroos. The Indian bowlers had then contributed significantly to that victory.
India’s fast bowlers took 70 wickets out of 80. These included the trio of Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami. Although Ishant is not scheduled to play in the first Test, but Burns still considers the rest of the Indian bowlers a threat.

Burns said, ‘Their (India’s) bowling attack has been strong for a long time, so we have seen their bowlers. They are very skilled and are going to be extremely dangerous. They are a team that you cannot take lightly. India is a world-class team and their bowling attack is part of that.
The Australian opener also said that the Australia-A practice match against India will be very important, as it will not only help in the preparation of the series, but will also provide a psychological edge. He said, ‘The focus is always on winning the match. The match with Australia-A will not only help in the preparation of the series, but will also provide a psychological edge. This series is going to be very exciting.
