Ashton Agar Ready to Shine in Upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy Against India

Ashton Agar, Australia’s spin-bowling all-rounder, revealed his enthusiasm about playing Test cricket in India. Agar, who has been included to the team for the Test series against South Africa, underlined his enthusiasm at the prospect of playing on Indian soil, saying that it is the most ‘interesting’ cricket to watch on TV.

From February 9 to 14, India will host Australia in a four-match Test series. The series will be crucial for the hosts in order to qualify for the World Test Championship final.

“I’m thinking about it. I like watching Test matches over there, and I believe playing Test cricket in India is something I’ve always wanted to achieve. “Because the wickets have been crazy lately, it’s the most entertaining cricket to watch on TV,” Agar told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Because the pitches in India are spin-friendly, Agar is eager to show off his skills.

“They’ve been spinning sideways, and I anticipate they’ll spin a considerable amount over there as well. “I’d love to go on the tour, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens,” he continued.

Agar, 29, has said that he relishes the responsibility of batting seventh for Australia. He also said that the increased responsibility of batting in the position makes him a better player.

“I feel like if I come in, I’ll be batting around the No.7 mark, which is pretty fantastic, the responsibility is really wonderful, it’s something I’ve been doing for Western Australia and I believe it helps you play better to be honest,” Agar said.

Meanwhile, Agar has been left out of Australia’s team for the three-match Test series against Australia. The hosts presently have a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
