Virat would’ve learned from his experience in England, reckons Anil Kumble

India’s all-important Test series down under is all set to begin. While many believe it’s India’s best chance to win in Australia, the former coach Anil Kumble mentioned that India and Virat Kohli would have learned from the South Africa and England tours.

Team India did well in South Africa and England. But they failed to seize the crucial moments and ended up on losing ends. Anil Kumble feels that the captain Virat Kohli is still learning and he would use the experience of the previous 2 overseas tours in Australia.

“I don’t think any captain or any player is a finished product. I mean you’re constantly learning and I’m sure Virat is also constantly learning from all the experiences that he’s had in South Africa and also in England. You spoke about the key moments, that’s something he’ll have to grab on the field.

He needs to identify that and possibly India got a bit complacent when they picked up to 5-6 early wickets in England and then let things drift. That’s something that I’m sure he would’ve learned from his experience in England,” Kumble was quoted as saying in News 18.

A big challenge lies ahead for India

In the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, the visitors are being termed as the favorites to win. But it’s not going to be easy as Australia has the home advantage. They may not have the best of the batting line-ups currently but the bowling is as good as any other team. The pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, together with the spinner Nathan Lyon combine to form one of the best bowling units in the world.
