IND vs AUS: With the World Test Championship Final just a day away, Australian skipper and premier fast bowler Pat Cummins has lauded Indian spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Cummins said that the spin duo poses a threat to the Australian batting lineup at the Oval. Cummins further said that even though the conditions aren’t the same as in India for the spinners, the Indian spinners have shown their pedigree in overseas conditions before and cannot be taken lightly.
“It is always a challenge coming up against the world-class spinners, the wicket might not play like it did in Delhi or some of those places for the spinners but they are crafty they have a pretty good record wherever they play in the world they are always going to be a challenge,” Cummins said in the pre-match conference.

Earlier, the former India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh also shared his opinion on how the bowling attack should line up for the World Test Championship Final.
While speaking exclusively to Star Sports he said, “This all depends on what the pitch is saying, if the pitch has lesser grass and the sun is out, then play with two spinners. If that is not the case then play three seamers and Ravindra Jadeja, along with Shardul Thakur who will not only bowl but contribute with the bat as well.”
