2000s team will win but what that team lacked was good seamers other than Zak. But with the batting they had, they could post a big total and Zak and Kumble would be good enough to put pressure. But if batting fails, they dont have the bowling to bail the side out of trouble.

 

 

It is incredible how Zak had no support at all - Sreesanth, Irfan, RP Singh were all good in spurts here and there but overall he was India's only hope outside Asia.

On paper, the 2000 Indian team must thrash the current team in India.

 

But in a real fight, I think our current team will win or atleast the run that team close.

 

Current Indian spinners know how to use the SG ball. So there won't be a Murali situation.

 

Plus the whole team is clutch as hell in India.

 

2000 Indian team were never this dominating at home in the last decade.

 

Bumrah-Shami-Ashwin-Jaddu-Kuldeep is an insanely relentless attack to face at home.

 

It won't be easy even for the Fab 4 as there won't be any weaklings to target.

So we're forgetting the times when we outbowled the opposition, even when batting failed? If you're going by that argument then how would this side do if the bowling fails, which it will against our best ever batting lineup?

India was very dominant at home even in the 00s - that team beat McGrath, Ponting, Gilchrist and Hayden 2-1; this team beat a much weaker Aus team 2-1...stats will show 2-1 for both teams so you could argue statistically both the Indian teams were equally dominant in their respective series but once you factor in strength of opposition, it's a no-contest.

but that team was also beated at home few times

Aus beated them in 2004

Pak drew a test from nowere in mohali n then beat us in banglore.....that series was 1-1

Eng beat us in 2006 i think in wakhade , 2001....they did well to drew last 2 test 

SA also gave a thrashing in one of test i think almost all the series they played us at home 

NZ use to draw against us at home 

 

This team is pretty much whitewashing opp and if not that .....we are winning most test in the series
