Tests or ODIs, Michael Clarke feels India are always tough to beat at home

first_imgMichael Clarke visits India more often now than he did during his playing days as an Australia cricketer. But significantly, the former Aussie captain has perfected the art of ducking under the bouncer with the microphone in hand.When asked to pick one of Virat Kohli and Steve Smith in his side, he chose both. On being asked to rate the better captain between Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting, he appraised them equally. His favourite Indian cricketer is Sachin Tendulkar.The only time he let his guard down was when the mics were switched off. He tried his hand at making pani puri and played a little gilli danda while promoting a TV show.Time for some burning cricket questions and the filter was in action again. Can the current Indian side win away from home and stay No.1 in Tests? “India is doing extremely well winning home and away and led very well by Virat Kohli. So if they keep playing good cricket, they will continue to be the no.1 team in the world,” pat came the reply.A more considered evaluation finally happened when questioned if Australia had it in them to beat India on turning tracks, next month. Smothering the spin of the question, he replied, “ODI cricket is a lot different from Test cricket, so I would imagine the wickets would be very good. I think we will see some entertaining cricket.””Hopefully, the Aussies can perform well and win. But it is going to be tough. India is always good in their backyard,” Clarke finished with a non committal reply.advertisementlast_img read more
