LIVE: Ind vs Aus 4th Test | Day 1 | Live Scores, Audio Updates & Analysis
It’s a ‘New Year’ and both the teams would be looking to start fresh. While India would be hoping to continue from where they left last year, the Australian Cricket Team would be hoping for the complete opposite.
There is no doubt that Virat Kohli and his men will be under lesser pressure compared to Australia but the Captain has promised to not let their guard down at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Yes, India might need to play without Ishant Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin and that indeed would be a huge blow to the vistors but when you have someone like Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav waiting in the wings- You Know why you’re the number 1 test team in the world. The opportunity to win a Test Series in Australia would certainly be the biggest motivation for the Indian Cricket Team.
Australia on the other hand certainly has plenty to worry about. Unlike their routine of announcing their playing XI a day before the game, the home side has decided to remain silent about it leading to a lot of speculation in regards to who will play and who will not. According to a few reports doing the rounds, Peter Handscomb and the spinning all-rounder Marcus Labuschangne might earn a ticket to the playing XI instead of Aaron Finch and Mitchel Marsh.
It would be interesting to see how it all shapes up during the 4th test. Australia have never lost a test series to India at home- While Tim Paine would be reminding his boys that, Virat Kohli would be reminding his army to make sure and pounce on the opportunity. Yes, India has more injury problems to worry about but the home-side needs to take care of their form which is a bigger factor. While India certainly start as favorites to win this one, it would be naive to discount an Australian side, especially while they are playing at home.
Ind vs Aus 4th Test Match SCG: Pitch Report
It is quite difficult to be a pitch curator in Australia at the moment. If you leave a lot of grass on the pitch, they might say it was unplayable, if you don’t they might say- It was flat! On the other hand Tim Paine has requested for a spicier wicket at the Sydney Cricket Ground- the most spin friendly wicket on Australian Soil. Will Tim Paine get his wish or will he need to be careful for what he wishes for owing to India’s rich pace bowling department? One certainty though is the fact that the spinners will come into play way earlier than expected.
India would need to be wary of Nathon Lyon and it would be interesting to see who they pick as their main spinner to company Hanuma Vihar. Will Ravichdnaran Ashwin be fit enough or will they continue with the services of Ravijandra Jadeja? Well, they might even fancy Kuldeep Yadav on this pitch.
