AUS vs IND Dream11 predictions: Preview
The “Border Gavaskar” trophy has rightly lived up to all its hype till now. Australians wiped the floors with the visitors in the first Test, resulting in India’s lowest Test total of 36. Things looked more threatening for the Indians in the second with skipper Virat Kohli’s paternity leave and Mohammed Shami picking up an injury in the first Test. Nevertheless, to everyone’s surprise, the Ajinkya Rahane-led side came back stronger and dominated the Baggy Greens in their own backyard.
Now, it’s time for some red-ball action in the mecca of cricket, Sydney. Indians have already found themselves in an abundance of controversies with the team members allegedly breaking Cricket Australia’s COVID-19 norms. Adding to that, the Indians will be short of pacer Umesh Yadav, who got injured in the second Test. Southpaw David Warner is back in the Australian side. Rohit “Hit-man” Sharma will make his Test comeback. Navdeep Saini has replaced injured Umesh Yadav in the third Test. The Sydney Test can prove to be a decisive outing while deciding the faith of both the teams in the on-going series.
