McGrath: Australia will demolish India in Oz
Former Australia fast bowler Glenn mcGrath believes that the Tests against India will be 'one-sided' in favour of the Aussies if India play like they did against England earlier this year.
India are not the best side away from home, and McGrath reckons the combination of that factor on top of Australia's good form at home could well see a four nil drubbing come December.
McGrath said of the Ashes victory earlier this year: "The way Australia played last summer, if they get anywhere near that they will dominate India.
"Indians historically don't play well on the wickets over here, and the way they finished in the UK, the last three test matches they were pretty ordinary.
"So if they stay the same level and we play the way we did last year, it's going to be a very one-sided series.
"India's great at the shorter version at the game – one-dayers and T20s they play exceptionally well – but they haven't worked it out at test level yet."
McGrath was also conflicted about Mitchell Johnson being rested for the last three ODIs against South Africa. He felt a bowler should keep playing if they're in good form, rather than being wrapped in cotton wool.
He added: "I don't know, you still want to be bowling. If you're in form, you want to keep playing to maintain it.
"These last three one-dayers are still important leading into the World Cup afterwards. You can't think too far in front.
"The Test series is coming up and if something happened, if Mitch got injured, it would leave a big hole, without a doubt.
"I think he's the best bowler in the world at the moment, so it's a bit of a balancing act. I never wanted to be rested from matches, but he's so important."
