Focus on Test Series from India - Langer
Australia's Chief coach Justin Langer said that senior players have been rested with the series of four Test matches commencing from December 6 in Adelaide, keeping in mind the series.
Langer said, "We knew that after the UAE tour we have to go through long seasons in our country and after that we have to play the World Cup and the Ashes, so we have to make the right balance between our T20 team and the preparation for the upcoming Test series. ''
Australia undergoing a bad phase
Australia is going through a bad phase in the absence of its star players Steve Smith and David Warner. He had lost the T20 series to Pakistan in UAE and after that he had to face defeat in the first match played in Perth of the three ODIs against South Africa in Perth.
