Preview for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy Contest: 

Australia welcomed India by thrashing them in the first 2 ODIs but the rest of the limited overs series was dominated by India. Australia are massive favourites to win the test series, even with David Warner’s injury. Australia have won all 7 day-night tests that they have hosted and they have often been huge wins.

India did well to bounce back by winning the T20I series and earning a consolation victory in the 3rd ODI. As per injuries, the Indian team looks quite unscathed. Rohit Sharma will not be featuring in this test match but in Mayank and Shaw, India has two batsmen capable of scoring the big runs. 

 

Injury and Availability News

As of now, there are no major injury concerns for both sides.

 

Probable Playing XI

Australia: Joe Burns, Matthew Wade, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Tim Paine, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood 

India: Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravi Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah 

Top Captaincy Picks for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy contest

Australia

Steve Smith: Steve Smith looked in great touch as he was named the player of the tournament for the ODI series. He is undoubtedly the best test batsmen the circuit has to offer at the moment. He loves batting against India, especially at home.

Marnus Labuschagne: Another batsman who has grown in stature over the last couple of years is South African-born Marnus Labuschagne. He loves batting in the longer form of the game and is currently 5th on the Test batting rankings.

India

Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli loves making a statement. This will be his only test match as he will be flying back to India on a paternal leave. He will be hell bent on leaving his mark by winning the first test match at Adelaide. His average goes from 55.39 to 71.83 when the venue changes from other Australian grounds to Adelaide. 

Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit Bumrah was recently in the news for scoring a half century. He hasn’t been at his usual best so far in the series but will be ready to rumble come the pink ball test. He has a good record in his short-lived test career and will be vital in the absence of Ishant Sharma.

Budget Picks for AUS vs IND GoodGamer Fantasy Contest

Prithvi Shaw: Prithvi Shaw is just valued at 8 credits. He hit some exquisite strokes in the practise match but his stay at the crease didn’t last long. If he can be composed, he can score big.

Nathan Lyon: Nathan Lyon is one of the best spinners in Australian red ball cricket history. The off spinner has picked up 390 wickets and will surely add to that in the 4-test match series.

Pat Cummins: Pat Cummins is valued cheaper than Jash Hazlewood due to their recent numbers but Cummins’ class is permanent. He is one of the best bowlers in the world and will bounce back.
