ABOUT THE MATCH

This is the series everyone has been waiting for. On their 12th tour of Australia, India will hope to win a Test series for the first time ever. With the hosts relatively weak, this could be Team India’s time!

Match Preview

India and Australia have played 94 Tests, with India winning on 26 occasions and Australia winning on 41. 27 Tests have ended in a draw.

But the stats are very one-sided when you consider only Tests held in Australia. India have only 5 wins from 55 Tests Down Under.

iconAustralia Team News

Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja were the leading runscorers for Australia in the recent tour of UAE. They will look to continue that form. Shaun Marsh can also chip in with vital knocks.

The pace trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will be the main threat for the Indian batsmen. Nathan Lyon will look to make breakthroughs with his spinning exploits.

iconIndia Team News

Prithvi Shaw’s unfortunate ankle injury during the practice match means that KL Rahul will most likely partner Murali Vijay as the opening batsman for India. Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari and Ajnkya Rahane all scored fifties in the practice match but the main man for India will be Virat Kohli who has scored 1000+ runs in Australia. Rishabh Pant will look to add to the score down the order.

Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the pace trio India will bank on to topple the weak Australian batting order. R Ashwin’s experience and guile will support them in their task.
