In a few months time, India goes down under to defend their World Cup, and even if this series gives the players some match practice, it is highly inconclusive. The conditions in India are miles apart from Australia and New Zealand. Indian pitches, a batsmen paradise and suited for slow bowling, are not enough to test the skill set of the players. This series cannot prove to be enough evidence to conclude on the best XI for the World Cup, which is to be played on fast, bouncy, and seaming tracks. The ability to play fast bouncers and the moving ball cannot be evaluated on Indian tracks.
