SYDNEY: Former Australian skipper Ian Chappell said India and England have enough depth in their cricketers’ pool, and he also felt Australia was running low in terms of getting enough cricketers from cricket capable of making the transition to international cricket smoothly.
Chappell said India’s depth was evident in the series against Australia, in which an injury-ravaged team beat the Down Under team in their own backyard.
“It has become very clear during this pandemic-ravaged era that one of the valuable ingredients of a cricket team is depth. Ideally, this should be both batting and bowling. India has showed their great depth – especially in fast bowling – by beating Australia on their recent tour. Making six changes from first to second test and still beating England comfortably at Edgbaston, New Zealand also surprised by their talent, ”wrote Chappell in his column for ESPNcricinfo.
“England showed both depth and flexibility in eliminating Pakistan completely in their three-game ODI streak. Their prospects for the Ashes in Australia were also bolstered by the skillful performance of Saqib Mahmood and Brydon Carse. , two bowlers whose rhythm should be an asset on inflatable fields, ”he added.
Chappell also said Team India is best placed when it comes to batting talent. The former Australian skipper also praised the country’s development system which produces traditional techniques.

Speaking of Australia’s depth, Chappell said: “The only major team whose recent performances haven’t involved substantial depth are Australia. The hitter is the main concern and the hitters haven’t. thrived in the Caribbean, only Mitchell Marsh making his mark But Marsh is unlikely to replace Cameron Green as a versatile six-test hitter. ”
“Once again, the Aussie stick proved fragile when David Warner and Steve Smith went missing. A look at Sheffield Shield’s batting performance over the past two seasons doesn’t inspire much confidence that the new wave of stars is on the horizon, “he added.
