A tough fight between the two teams is expected in this series because India has a ticket to the final of the World Test Championship at stake, while Australia would like to avenge the last two defeats from India.
In the ICC episode, Jayawardene said, ‘I think it is going to be a great series. I think it’s about the Indian conditions and how the Australian batsmen deal with it, they have a really good bowling unit and how the Indian batsmen deal with it…it depends on how each team starts the series does and who gets the momentum. But it will be attractive.

With this, Jayawardene predicted the team to win the series and said that Australia can win this series 2-1, but it is going to be difficult for them.
He said ‘It is difficult to predict, but being a Sri Lankan, I hope Australia win. Maybe Australia will win this series 2-1, but it is going to be tough.
Shubman Gill has recently performed brilliantly in the limited overs series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. At the same time, he also scored a century in the Test series against Bangladesh in December. Jayawardene hopes that this batsman will be seen playing in such colors against Australia as well.

“He is very good, he is technically very strong and he is a good player of pace. That will put him in good stead against the Australian attack, but it’s always going to be tough and it’s going to be a very good series. He is in terrific form at the moment and if he can convert that into red-ball cricket and has that pace, maturity, understanding of conditions and situations, he will be a huge asset to India’s top-order. He gives the team good starts at a good pace to put the opposition bowling attack under pressure.
