After a horrible outing in the Adelaide Test, India made a stunning comeback in the four-match Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia as they registered a comprehensive victory against the hosts by 8 wickets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Many cricket pundits and analysts were of the view that India will be smoked 4-0 in the Test series after the Adelaide Test as they would be without the services of their skipper Virat Kohli

Former England cricketer and renowned commentator Michael Vaughan was the one to strongly reckon that there is no chance for India in the Test series. However, the Men in Blue defied all the odds as they emerged victorious in the second Test at MCG. Though Vaughan was all praises for the Indian team for a spectacular victory, he still believes that the Aussies will bounce back stronger in the next game and will win both the remaining Tests to clinch the series by 3-1. 

Also, the veteran cricketer gave the credit to the pitches of Australia for India’s victory at MCG. Vaughan is of the view that England has a great chance of winning the iconic Ashes series in 2021 if they are provided with the same pitches as the Indian squad. Notably, Australia will host England next year from November 2021 to January 2022 for the five-match Test series.

“If the pitches are similar for the Ashes as they have been for the Indian series it gives England a great chance .. If Melbourne replaces Sydney for this series it also gives India a chance but I still think the Aussies will bounce back and win 3-1,” Michael Vaughan tweeted. 

The victory at Melbourne Cricket Ground will be a memorable one for the Indian contingent. Though winning a Test in Australia is always special for any cricketing nation, India managed this victory after registering their lowest ever Test total of 36 runs in the second innings of the first Test against Australia. Also, the visiting nation wasn’t playing with their full strength. The captain Virat Kohli wasn’t available for selection as he is on paternity leave while Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma are suffering from injuries.
