The much-awaited 4-match Test series of India against Australia will begin on 17th December. Ahead of the series, India head coach Ravi Shastri has showered praise on the team’s pacers. He has called them ‘fabulous five’. The former India all-rounder stated that India’s pacers can defeat the Australian team in their den

The last time India visited Australia, their pacers had played a significant part in the Test series win. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Ishant Sharma had featured with the ball to assist India in winning their first-ever Test series on the Australian territory. The trio pacer had gotten a record 48 wickets in the four-match series as India secured the test series for 2-1.

Fans and cricket enthusiasts are expecting a similar performance from the Indian pacers again, as India hopes to retain the Border-Gavaskar Series. What's more, Ravi Shastri is sure the bowlers can do lead the Indian team to win once more. Ravi Shastri conceded that Ishant's nonappearance does not have any kind of effect on the fast-bowling department. The Indian head coach trusts that the Kohli-led team can perform well against the Australian team on their ground.

Ravi Shastri explained the traits of the pacers

Talking about the same, Ravi Shastri told to media that the Indian team has a fabulous five. He mentioned the names of Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, and Umesh Yadav.

He added that Saini is young and fast while Yadav has the experience. Shastri believes that Bumrah is truly outstanding in the business. Shami is a rare talent. Siraj is an exciting prospect for team India. Any team piles up runs on the board and watch these pacers from the India bowling unit hunt the opposition.

Ishant is at present at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) for his recovery. Moreover, the management is expecting him to join the Test team later, once he passes the fitness test. However, he can probably skip the first Test due to lack of training.

Ahead of the beginning of the Tests on December 17 in Adelaide, India, and Australia will play three ODIs and the same number of T20Is.
