Mumbai:Former Australian fast bowler Geoff Lawson considers the forthcoming short visit by his country's cricket team to India as a very important tour in the background of the 'spot-fixing' scandal that has engulfed the game.
"This Australia-India series is very important. People in Australia are looking forward to the Ashes. A good, tough and hard series before the Ashes will do a lot to retain people's faith in the game. We will start to think about the current cricket, not the one which has gone before," said the 52-year-old New South Welshman in an interaction with a few reporters on Tuesday, during his brief visit to Mumbai.
