India vs Australia 

1st Test Match Prediction & Tips 

Time: 09 Feb, 09:30 AM (IST)
Series: 1st Test Match
Venue: Vidarbha Cricket Ground – Nagpur, India     

IND vs AUS Dream11 Prediction:

  • Virat Kohli averages 48.90 from 177 Test innings and the top order batter is our tip for India’s highest run scorer in Nagpur. With the ball, Ravichandran Ashwin is the leading wicket taker in Tests at this venue and the spinner is well worth backing as India’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Steve Smith has been in strong form over recent weeks and averages 60.89 from 162 Test innings. He is our pick for Australia’s highest run scorer in this match. Nathan Lyon will enjoy bowling on this pitch and we expect the off-spinner to be Australia’s top wicket taker in this opening Test.
  • We recommend backing Virat Kohli to hit over 34.5 runs in the first innings.

Weather & Pitch Report:
⛅ Weather:

The weather forecast is for five days of non-stop sunshine in Nagpur with the temperature expected to reach 35 degrees on each day.

Pitch Report:
This surface will be hard work for the pace bowlers. The pitch will not be overly fast but will take spin from early on in the game.

Toss Prediction:
On a pitch which is likely to turn more as the game progresses, we predict that both skippers will want to bat first in Nagpur.

Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant are the two main absentees, both through injury, for India ahead of this Test series. Shreyas Iyer will also miss this match with a back injury. 29 year old wicket-keeper Srikhar Bharat is expected to make his international debut in this game ahead of Ishan Kishan who is also in the squad.

AUS Team News:

Three key players are unavailable for Australia in this opening Test. All-rounder Cameron Green has a fractured finger, with opening bowlers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood out with back and achilles injuries respectively. It would be a surprise if any players were given a Test debut in this match.

Winning Chances:

Cricket fans from across the globe will be looking forward to this Test series and they could well be in for an excellent first game in Nagpur. Australia have one of the world’s best spinners in Nathan Lyon and if he can bowl at his best then the visitors will have an excellent chance. We think that India’s greater experience of batting in the home conditions will be crucial and our prediction is for India to win this Test.
