After a phenomenal 2022, Usman Khawaja wants to make his mark against India in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 in India next month. Australia will travel to Indian shores to clash in a four-Test series, in hopes of winning for the first time since 2004.

Khawaja, who toured India back in 2013 and 2017, is yet to play a red-ball game in India, revealed that this could be the last time several Australian players play in the country. 

As per PerthNow, the 36-year-old said that the current team under Pat Cummins have a chance, and overcome their Final Frontier. 

Here's what Khawaja said

"For a lot of boys this will be our last Indian tour so we'd love to win it. I have been on the other tours. I haven't played, but I look at this team and I think it is probably the best team I have been a part of to go over and achieve this goal."

​Khawaja further dwelled on his love of playing spin bowling, and expressed his excitment of facing the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel and Co.

"I really like playing against spin. I didn't when I was younger. I do now. Spinning conditions throw a lot of cool stuff at you. I have been quite successful in the sub-continent the last few years in white-ball and red-ball cricket so things for me won't really change.

"​Taking them on in their conditions I think everybody is excited because you are playing against one of the toughest teams in the world in their backyard."

The first Test between India and Australia will take place in Nagpur on February 9.
