Former Australia coach Darren Lehmann feels India have some high quality gamers of their ranks to still impact a turnaround within the ongoing four-match collection Down Under, regardless of a drubbing within the opener in Adelaide.

India had been bundled out for his or her lowest-ever Test rating of 36 of their second innings at Adelaide Oval as Australia claimed an eight-wicket win within the first pink-ball Test to take a 1-Zero lead within the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

“It will be hard now for them, but they’ve actually got some quality players if they can get on a roll,” Lehmann instructed ‘SA Sportsday’.

The 50-year-old former Australia batsman opined that India have a potent bowling assault and if their batsmen address the bounce effectively, then the vacationers may stage a comeback within the collection.

“They can certainly cause some trouble with the ball, it’s just whether the batsmen can cope with the bounce. The MCG pitch will suit them a bit better because it’s a bit flatter.”

“So we’ll see if their batsmen can bounce back and make some runs, especially in the first innings. That’s going to be the key for them,” Lehnmann mentioned.

The two groups are assembly once more on December 26, for the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne.

India shall be with out the providers of skipper Virat Kohli, who has returned residence for the beginning of his first youngster, and pacer Mohammed Shami, who suffered a fracture on his bowling hand through the day/night time Test in Adelaide final week.
