In fact, out of the 44 Tests that India have played in Australia, they have just managed 5 wins. However, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ian-chappell" target="_blank">Ian Chappell</a> believes the numbers will mean nothing when India travel Down Under. Chappell praised <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli's </a>captaincy and predicted that India will win the series against a Steven Smith and David Warner minus Australian side. <p></p> <p></p>"He's a good captain. He's aggressive. I think his team will win Australia," Chappell told <i>The Times of India</i>. <p></p> <p></p>Calling him among the top three batsmen of this era, Chappell believes Kohli is emotional and that at times gets in the way of his captaincy. <p></p> <p></p>"He's a bit emotional at times. It's something that he'll improve. As a captain you need to keep your emotions pretty level. However, that's also a part of who is. And I think that's a part of him being a good player. I don't have a problem with that as a player, but I think at times it gets in the way of his captaincy," Chappell added. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-favourites-to-claim-first-test-series-win-in-australia-simon-katich-700756"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>The former Australian states that to win in Australia, a team should have a good armoury of pacers, something India possess, along with a good mix of wrist spinners.<b></b> <p></p> <p></p>"Their (pace) stocks are pretty good. That'll help in Australia. You need good pace bowling there. I think that the fact that they've got some wrist spinners will help them too, because wrist spinners, if they bowl well, perform well there. India have a good attack for the Australian conditions," said the 74-year-old. <p></p> <p></p>Chappell also pointed out Kuldeep's accuracy as a wrist spinner and tipped him for success Down Under. <p></p> <p></p>"You make a difference by being a good bowler. He's pretty accurate for a wrist spinner. I like the look of him. He's got a lot of potential. He's the sort of bowler who, if he bowls well in Australia, he'll have success." <p></p> <p></p>India, the No.1 Test side, hold the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the moment. They will be defending it in Australia in the 2018-19 season.
