Gurgaon: VVS Laxman believes the current India team is hungry for more success and backed the hosts to triumph over Australia in the upcoming limited-over series.
“There are a lot of talented cricketers in the Indian squad who are eager to perform. The upcoming series at home against Australia will be a good test for them. I think India are favourites to win the series. They have the fire power to do it,” Laxman said.
India will be playing Australia in a seven-match ODI series preceded by a solitary T20 encounter at Rajkot on October 10. Talking about the return of Yuvraj Singh to the national team, the Hyderabadi said the stylish left-hander’s comeback was just a matter of time.
“Yuvraj’s return was expected. He is such a class player. You can’t keep him out for long. He has lot to contribute to the team. He worked hard on his fitness and reaped benefits,” Laxman said. (PTI)
