Laxman has put his money on India to win the ODI series
India batting great VVS Laxman has announced that he believes the national team are favourites to win the seven-match ODI series against Australia.
Laxman noted that the Indian team has a lot of young talents, all of whom “are eager to perform” and prove their worth.
“There are lot of talented cricketers in the Indian side who are eager to perform,” Laxman said. “The upcoming Australia series at home 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 also stated that he knew it was only a matter of time before veteran all-rounder Yuvraj Singh regained his spot in the national team and made his comeback.
“Yuvraj’s return was expected,” he said. “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 during the India A series and the Challenger Trophy.
“I am sure India will gain with his presence in the Australia series.”
