Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions Australia v India 1st Test

The hosts will play their first Test on home soil since that infamous Cape Town Test against South Africa and Langer said his team also have a lot to prove

Warne suggested that whichever team goes on win the Test at Adelaide Oval could go on to claim a 2-1 win in the four-match series.

"The fans have absolutely voted with their feet the last few years that we have had day-night Tests, we have been significantly up for attendances", Bradshaw said.

Marsh's place in the side for the series-opener, which starts on Thursday, has been taken by middle order batsman Peter Handscomb, recalled for the first time since the tour of South Africa in March and April.

The fan, while speaking to Rohit Sharma in a candid chat for bcci.tv on the pedestrian bridge that runs over River Torrens, said he believes India have a good opportunity to beat the Australians at their own backyard.

There are two key differences, of course: India's batsmen are far better versed in facing spin and will be capable of attacking Lyon to bring the pacemen back more quickly, while an Australian batting line-up without Smith and Warner will need contributions from as many players as possible.

"Why not 4-0?" Rohit queried the fan who eventually went on to predict a clean sweep.

But the Indians have never won a Test series in Australia and if pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are firing the tourists could be in for another tough time.

Ashwin opined that India have a considerable chance of dominating the series, considering most of their players, including captain Kohli, have the previous experience of playing in Australia. We couldn't really win a Test match but we came very close. "We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well".

India have named a 12-man squad and will pick between Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari for the final batting place.

Twelve months ago the selectors chose Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon as their sole four bowlers for the opening two Tests against England, before Marsh was called in as a reinforcement from the time of the third match onwards. "Every side would like to have a fast-bowling all-rounder", he told reporters at Adelaide Oval on Wednesday.
