Default Indians can\'t beat Aussies: Boycott

Legendary England opener Geoffrey Boycott on Tuesday rubbished India's chances of defeating Australia later this year, saying they did not have the firepower to beat the world champions.
Boycott, one of the most accomplished openers in the history of Test cricket, said India will struggle outside the sub-continent due to a lack of quality opening batsmen.

"From what I have seen, I don't think any of the Indian batsmen have a good technique to counter the ball when it is new and seams and swings a lot," the 62-year-old told reporters here.

"Remember, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly -- all come down the order.

"In my opinion, only Virender Sehwag can make some runs by flashing his bat but he would be able to do it in one odd innings, not in all four Tests."
"You have to work at the academy. You have to pick youngsters and work on them before bad habits get ingrained in them," he said.

"Outside India and Sri Lanka, you lose early wickets. If you cannot win in England, I can't see you doing it against Australia."
