Australia vs India - 1st Test Match Preview & Prediction

Australia vs India - 1st Test Match Preview & Prediction”

Gaining the respect of his country is as big a priority as taming India for Australian skipper Tim Paine, who Wednesday said that winning matches and winning hearts are not mutually exclusive tasks for him.

India will also line up without a supplementary quick, although not by choice having lost Hardik Pandya for the series to a back injury. For India, it is a quest to end their tag of bad travellers after losing the series against South Africa (1-2) and England (1-4) with Australia posing an opportunity for Virat Kohli and co.to win first Test series Down Under in 70 years.

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect", he said.

"We've obviously got a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if we need him to".

The Pacers are withstanding things minus Oladipo, which has included a western road trip that will result in at least a 2-2 split. "I don't have words for that start", Nate McMillan said after his team fell to 13-9 on the season. "I just tried to make plays".

With four Tests in a month, some of them on unforgiving tracks, the value of Marsh's bowling should increase through the series.

Paine confirmed Marcus Harris would make his test debut and open the batting with Aaron Finch in the opener of the four-match series, Australia's first home test since Steve Smith and David Warner were banned over the Newlands ball-tampering scandal.

Archie Schiller will be part of the squad for the Boxing Day Test match against the subcontinent giants that will start on December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). However, ahead of the third and final - a stern Test against Australia in Australia, the Asian giants are being tipped as favourites.

"We know he is good enough to be a genuine all rounder at Test level. We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well", Langer said.

The union representing the Oshawa auto workers says it will put up what it calls "the fight of our lives" to keep the plant open. The company will instead concentrate on trucks and SUVs, and will double its investment in electric and autonomous vehicles.

Paine predicted that Australia's three premium quicks and champion off-spinner Nathan Lyon would be able to carry the attack at Adelaide against an Indian batting line-up that is one of the strongest to visit Aust-ralia.

The dumping of Mitch Marsh will add an extra burden for Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon, who will have to take on more overs in what are forecast to be scorching hot conditions in Adelaide.

Should an extra option be needed, Paine can call on the part-time off-spin of Travis Head.

"The wicket over the last few years here has given enough throughout the game". In essence, BCCI has indicated that India will be going with six batters.
