The Australian captain Tim Paine has put the India vs Australia Test rivalry on the same pedestal where the Ashes resides. With Australia vs India Test series in doubt due to COVID-19 outbreak, Paine revealed his remarks about the closely contested series.
Paine feels that as his team is targeting the final of the World Test Championship, each point is crucial for them. "We play Test cricket to win and every Test match now counts to that end goal we're driving to which is the Test Championship final,", he said.
Moreover, he also talked about the rivalry between the two nations. India and Australia as a rivalry, it's a series a bit like the Ashes that we all look forward to," he added. Paine is hopeful that with a slightly different Australian team, his side will avenge the home series defeat against India when the last time two nations collided in the Test series.
