IND vs AUS Test Series: Australian cricket team's head coach Justin Langer has said that the upcoming Test series against India will be a difficult series, but this time he has the team to win the four-match Test series. Australia had lost the series for the first time in 2018-19 in the absence of its two main players David Warner and Steve Smith. Warner and Smith were out of the team due to the Sandpaper Gate dispute.
Langer said that Australian players will no longer have to face defeat two years ago. Langer said during a conversation with the media on Friday, 'Yes, all our players have a bitter taste in the mouth that India gave us last time.' He said, 'Now we have young and talented players. They are committed to what happened last time. Yes, now we have got the team to defeat India.'

Langer also praised the captaincy of Indian captain Virat Kohli and his competition. The Australian coach said, 'India is an incredible team and captain Kohli is leading that team in a better way. I have repeatedly said that I have great admiration for him (Kohli) as a captain. He Put energy into everything. I love my competition, so the series against India is going to be really tough. '
The Jasprit Bumrah-led Indian bowling attack will play an important role in Australia and Langer says, 'Bumrah is a great bowler. He has got a really good bowling attack.'
