Chandigarh:With the likes of Glenn McGrath, Adam Gilchrist, Shane Warne and more recently Matthew Hayden and Brett Lee out of the side, Australia have been in the process of rebuilding. As a result of which, not only has their Test ranking has slipped to number four but the team is very short on experience as well. Will that work against them during this series as well?
With 52 Tests under his belt and 29 out of those as an opener, Simon Katich is well versed with the art of dealing with the new ball. In Shane Watson he will have an able partner but one who doesn't have any experience in opening the innings in India, and that begs the question, will the two Aussie openers be able to fill Matthew Hayden and Justin Langer's shoes?
