Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has come up with a prediction for the scoreline of the ongoing four-match Test series between India and Australia. The turbanator has batted for India to win by a massive margin of 4-0 in the series where they are already leading by 2-0. Apart from that, Bhajji also argued that the Aussie hasn’t the firepower and instinct of a comeback that they used to have two decades before.

“I have absolutely no doubt that India will win 4-0, even if it was a 10-match series, India would have won 10-0 because Australia doesn’t have any firepower,” said Harbhajan Singh to Sports Tak.

Although these comments from the former Indian spin great came up as an opportunity for fans to take a jibe at the former for underestimating the visitors; just based on the result of the first two Tests against India. A section of the cricket fans took to Twitter and advised the 42-year-old to not be so overconfident.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Speaking of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian team is currently leading the four-match assignment by a margin of 2-0. The hosts won the first two Tests in Nagpur and Delhi by the convincing margins of an innings and 132 runs and six wickets respectively.

Meanwhile, the Australian team has faced a lot of blows as the skipper Pat Cummins alongside senior southpaw David Warner recently flew back to their country; owing to their respective reasons and commitments. Subsequently, another important player Ashton Agar will also not be a part of the squad for the third Test in Indore.

Now, India and Australia will lock horns in the third of the four-match Test series at the Holkar Stadium in Indore; the match will commence on Wednesday, the 1st of March next month. Following that, the Narendra Modi Stadium of Ahmedabad will host the fourth and last Test of this series between two cricketing powerhouses.
