Sydney: Former Australian captain Ian Chappell feels that India's bowling doesn't match up as well as the New Zealand attack did in favourable conditions to humble Australia in its own backyard.
Chappell said the troubled Australian batsmen can heave a sigh of relief unless India's pace spearhead Zaheer Khan is fully fit, and the visitors aren't so well endowed when it comes to proven swing bowlers.
"If the local curators continue to leave grass on the pitches, as they have done over the past couple of summers, it will suit our emerging pace attack. The sight of greenish pitches will have the Indian batsmen reeling - and consequently the Australian pace bowlers will have a psychological advantage. However, this shouldn't be taken for granted because the Indian line-up is very experienced and talented," said Chappell in his column in the Herald Sun.
