Teams Preview

Australia

Australian Test squad looks like a perfect unit on all the fields and have dominated Adelaide Oval ground in all D/N test matches. They have played 3 matches at the same place with a 100% winning record and they will be looking forward to claiming their 4th win in this series against India.

The Australian team is suffering from injury concerns as opener David Warner will not be the part of the 1st Test. Warner's replacement, the young talented batsman Will Pucovski, who was the stand-by opener in the squad, suffered a blow to the head in the warm-up match. So, to open the innings, Matthew Wade or Joe Burns might get a chance for Australia.

The Australian squad suffered a third blow when the West Australian all-rounder Cameron Green, who was impressive in the tour match, took a blow to his head. Australian middle-order is looking strong with the experienced Steve Smith and Marnus Labushchagne in the middle with Moises Henriques in the lower middle order. The pace trio with Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood and Pat Cummins will be looking forward to attacking Indian lineup and Nathon Lyon will be there to help them with the spin. Overall, the Australian side will be looking forward to claiming their 1st Test win of this summer despite a few injuries.

India

The Indian team will be searching for a comfortable win to start a Test series on the Australian soil to claim 1st spot in the ICC test championship.

In the middle order, Virat Kohli will be in the search of the 1st hundred of this year.

Experienced Test players like Cheteshwar Pujara and India's Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane will be facing Australian pace attack in the middle order. Hanuma Vihari who had a good domestic season and also scored a hundred in a practice match against Australia A will be the key player in the middle order.

Indian pacers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will be looking forward to bouncing back after not getting into a form for the limited-overs format. India's experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be going to play a key role on the Oval's pitch. India have lots of combinations in all the fields and they will be trying to fit a perfect combination for the 1st Test match of the series to defeat Australia.

Venue Details

This is the 1st test match from India tour to Australia and is going to play at Adelaide Oval. The ground has the capacity of 50,000 people and is considered as one of the most picturesque test venues in the world.

Toss Prediction

The pitch offers a slight advantage to batsmen. The team batting first has won 5 out of the last 7 matches played at the ground while after bowling first, the team won 2 matches. The pitch will be easy to defend the target.

The team winning the toss should look to the Bat First here.

Winning Prediction

The Australian side has a slight edge over the Indian side in the bowling department. Australia's pace attack along with spin bowling and experience of the D/N Test match might help them to claim a win over India. India's playing 11 is not fixed yet since they have more options which may harm them while trying out a perfect 11 for the 1st game. Also, the pitch conditions are very known to Australian players which will help them in the first match of the series.

We predict that Australia will come victorious against India.
