Melbourne: The retirement of some batting greats and the recent failure to dominate England with spinners on home soil make India a "vulnerable" side in the upcoming Test against Australia, former cricketer Geoff Lawson has commented.
The former Australian fast bowler said India's defeat against England despite playing on favourable dust-bowls was a big positive for the visiting Australian side.
"The forthcoming Indo-Aussie Test series presents major challenges for both teams. India have recently lost 2-1 to England on home soil after winning the opening Test. Two conclusions come from that result: that England are tough, confident and classy, and that India are on the wane and are vulnerable," Lawson said.
