“I think the Australia team has a lot of areas it needs to continue to develop. I will be holding my breath when this team jumps on the big bird and heads to India. It’s going to be messy, very messy,” Moody said on Macquarie Radio.
He also stated that even England had experienced the same problems he foresaw the Aussies going through. Moreover, he also went on to state that the depth in batting for India was the key for them in terms of amazing the big totals.

India has endless batsmen that can pile on runs and they have got two spinners that do it better than anyone else in the world in those conditions.”
