New Delhi, Dec 23: Indian batting legend V.V.S. Laxman believes India have a very good chance of doing well in the limited-over series in Australia in January as the home team appears vulnerable.

“This Australian team is definitely quite beatable and vulnerable. They have a depleted side. They do not have two key players — Michael Clarke, who led them to World Cup victory, and Mitchell Johnson, who was lately one of the world’s most lethal bowlers,” Laxman said here on Wednesday.

“They also do not have Mitchell Starc, Shane Watson looks iffy and will be under pressure to perform, Steven Smith is injured and they have no Brad Haddin. The only real danger will be David Warner. The key is to make him go for cover drives and not pitch anything short to him. He is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world today and the real substance in their batting line-up.”

“India have a very good chance. Our bowling is doing really well and Ravichandran Ashwin is bowling the best he has ever bowled in his life. India have quality plus the balance of the side is very good,” said Laxman, who will be part of broadcaster Star Sports’ commentary team for the tour. IANS
