Melbourne: Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq on Wednesday said India is set to beat Australia in the upcoming Test series as the hosts no longer have a formidable bowling attack to tackle the visiting team's formidable batting line-up.
"I believe Australia doesn't have world-class bowlers like McGrath, Shane Warne and Brett Lee and that will be difficult," Razzaq said.
"India are (aiming) to be the world champions and they will give a tough time to Australia," he added.
Razzaq is in Australia playing for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League.
Australia's attack will be led by a 21-year-old James Pattinson in the opening Test as the front-line pacers, including Mitchell Johnson, are nursing injuries.
