India Vs Australia 3rd Test Match is starting from tomorrow in Ranchi. Both the teams will try to take a lead in Ranchi itself so that they can go into final Dharamshala Test match with a positive mindset. There has been a lot of talking from the media of both countries and all this would be in the mind of the players only till the match starts. After that, all one need to do is to play positive cricket on the ground and try to win each and every session.
As far as Pitch is concerned it is being said that three pitches have been prepared for this match and the officials will take the decision regarding on which pitch the match will take place. The pitch curator has said that the match will go until the final day and pitch will have something to offer for both batsman and bowlers.
The toss would be very important for both the teams because we have seen in previous matches that batting last becomes a very tough ask irrespective of any target you are chasing. Both the team would love to win the toss and Bat first.
Regarding teams, we may see one change in Indian teams with Virat Kohli bringing in Jayant Yadav in place of Karun Nair who could not do much in the Bengaluru test. We may see Kuldeep Yadav in team India as it would be difficult for the Australian team to pick his action. Kohli may surprise anyone by this change. Also, Murli Vijay would be drafted in if he is fit in place of Abhinav Mukund.
Australian team captain would be facing a lot of dilemmas with team selection. Mitchell Marsh and Mitchell Starc have returned back to their countries and Pat Cummins is all set to replace Starc. But who will replace Marsh? There are two options either it could be Maxwell whose spin bowling and experience in batting in Indian condition might be on his side or it would be Marcus Stoinis who played a blinder in the 1st match of the Recently concluded one day match against NewZealand.
Let’s see which side will be able to seize in advantage on day 1 of India Vs Australia 3rd Test Match. All eyes would be on Toss and Team Composition. It seems DRS drama will not end very soon, some very hard questions were thrown back on Kohli, check out what Kohli had to say in response:
