India will host Australia and a revitalized David Warner in a four-match Test series in February and March of next year. This series will be important on many levels for both teams. India has to win every game in the series to have the best chance of making it to the 2023 World Test Championships final when both nations are vying for a spot.

On the other hand, Australia’s resounding home win over South Africa in the just concluded three-match series has greatly boosted them. Furthermore, Australia hasn’t triumphed in a Test series in India since 2015, and they haven’t done so in the longest format there since 2005.

Veteran opener David Warner helped his side win the series against South Africa by an innings and 182 runs by blasting a huge double century in the second Test, putting a rough stretch of Test cricket behind him. Warner said that despite knowing what awaits them in India, the team is upbeat after the recent victories in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

“We are aware of what to expect since they will be turning wickets. The venues are diverse; Dharamsala at that time of year, when we played and undoubtedly should have won that Test but did not, is followed by Nagpur and Delhi, both of which are fairly dry.

On February 9 in Nagpur, the first of the four tests will be played.”

There can be times when it’s challenging there, but what is important is how our batters grow and bat forcefully, as we did in Pakistan.”

I think we’re going to handle the ball well. We may want to think about fielding two spinners since Nathan Lyon is a master spinner. Everyone in Sri Lanka was playing reverse sweeps and sweeps during the first Test in Galle; everyone had a plan and stuck to it “He said.

When asked whether this was Australia’s best chance to win the prized Test series in India, Warner responded: “Should I start the headlines now so we can get there before we go? I do believe I heard something last week about two-day exams. It ought to be intriguing.”
