World Test Championship winner Taylor believes that the Indian fast bowlers have all the power to create problems for Australia.
Taylor told the ICC website, ‘Whenever you play in England, the conditions and the weather play a big part.’
“Whenever you think of Australia and India, and also you are playing at a neutral ground, fast bowlers play a big role. Australian fast bowlers are famous for bowling with Dukes ball and they have Quite an experience.”
But Taylor did not rule out the possibility of India.
“I wouldn’t dismiss this Indian side. They’ve had a lot of success there over the years, they’ve got some of these fast bowlers,” he said.
Spin was the key weapon as India beat Australia 2-1 in the four-match Test series Border-Gavaskar Trophy on home soil but the pacers are expected to lead both the attacks when the teams meet again WTC Final In June.
Taylor is confident that even without Bumrah, India have enough options in the pace department to make an impact in English conditions.
He said, “It is very difficult to replace someone like Bumrah. He has been excellent in all three formats and is the leader of their bowling attack.”
“But I think there is still enough depth in this Indian line-up to trouble the Australian side. (Mohammed) Shami and co are brilliant in these conditions.
“When you consider India’s attack, (Mohammed) Siraj and Co. have also been very good with the Dukes ball.
“I think there are still a lot of (India) fast bowlers who are brilliant and like to bowl with the Dukes ball. Umesh Yadav also bowls 140-plus. They love bowling with the Dukes ball and in England conditions. Let’s enjoy the opportunity.” Added.
