Rohit Sharma-led India will lock horns with the number 1 Test side in the world Australia in the first Test match at Nagpur. This will mark the commencement of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as the Indian side will aim to book their spot at the World Test Championship final.

There is already a lot of talk over the pitch and the combinations. Both sides are grappling with injuries; hence, the playing combinations are under the scanner. Ahead of the match, Indian captain, Rohit Sharma was not willing to reveal his combinations, but considering the conditions on offer, India could go in with three spinners.

Axar Patel, R Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja will be the three spinners for India while Mohammed Siraj and one of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav could be the two seamers. There are indications that Shubman Gill could play in the middle order ahead of Suryakumat Yadav.

India vs Australia Nagpur Weather and Pitch Report

The VCA Stadium in Nagpur has always been quite interesting. If initial reports and pictures are to be believed, the surface on offer will have plenty of assistance to the spinners. The weather is set clear and there will be plenty of sun shine that will further break the pitch down. Toss could be a big factor and the captain winning the toss will elect to bat first. 

India vs Australia Match Prediction

India have been sensational at home in Test cricket and Australia have generally struggled in this part of the world. However, they seem to have all bases covered – have won games in Sri Lanka and Pakistan and look confident. However, India should have enough fuel in the tank to take a lead in this match.
