Hello, friends hope you are all doing well, below preview is given by our fantasy cricket experts. In the preview below we have given the news regarding tomorrow’s match, predicted lineup of both the squads.
Australia tour of India (4-match Test Series) will commence from tomorrow and there is no doubt it would be a cracker jacker of a series. The first match is going to be played at Maharashtra Cricket Association, Pune. The pitch seems to be really very dry and the visitors are already afraid by watching the pitch conditions. Like every Indian pitch, it will favor spinners so Australia may be tempted to play with three spinners and two seamers.
Australia is knowing that they are the real underdogs coming into this series and it would take a lot of hard work and grit to win this series or even draw this series.Australia has not won in their last 10 test in subcontinent wickets, and they will be very keen to improve these statistics. But the good thing for the visitor is they are considered as the strongest team by experts to have visited India in recent past because all teams have failed to adapt to subcontinent environment. But most of this Australian players have been playing in the IPL which will definitely help them to adapt in subcontinent easily.
On the other hand, India has been in very good form in Tests since a year. They haven’t lost any Test match since their last defeat aginst Sri Lanka in first test way back in 2016. After that, they thrashed Srilanka and continued the rampage by beating West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand, England, Bangladesh.They are not just winning the series but eventually, they have dominated each and every opponent they have faced till date in Tests. So India is strong favorites again to win this series too, without even a ball being bowled.
