Vadodra, Sept 24 : India has a brilliant opportunity to win the forthcoming Test series against Australia, as the visiting team was low on experience and the Indian middle order has consistently performed well against the Aussies in recent series.
He said the last Test series against Sri Lanka was a one-off series because Indian middle order didn't perform well.
"Last year, we came close to equal, if not win, the Test series in Australia and in 2004 we lost the Chennai Test on the last day because of rain. But, this time I think we have got a brilliant opportunity. This Australian side is low on experience. I think our vast experience and skill will be our advantage and we have to back it with the right result at the end of the series. All players had adequate rest and the perfect preparation for such a series and we are looking forward to it," The Age quoted Kumble as saying in Vadodra.
"Against Australia the middle order has done exceptionally well and I'm expecting it to be no exception this time too," Kumble added.
He further said: "They are players who have handled pressure throughout their career. It's a phase that everyone goes through and I believe it's over. The results we got in the last 10-12 years are thanks to these people."
