AUS vs IND: India-Australia will be the first day-night test match, know probable playing XI and record

The four-match Test series between India and Australia begins with a day-night Test match at the Adelaide Oval ground on Thursday. 
This format is quite new for India and hence it looks weak against experienced Australia. Australia is the most experienced team in the day-night test format.

Australia have played seven Test matches in the day-night format, of which four have played at the Adelaide Oval. At the same time, India has played only one Test match in day-night format so far. India played this match against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens last year. This first day-night Test of India came four years after Australia's first Test match.

India, however, will be inspired by the fact that it has given some strong performances in Adelaide in Australia, especially in recent times. India also won in Adelaide on the previous tour of 2018-19.

He said, "The test match of pink ball brings with it a lot of things, such as in the evening, when it is very difficult to bat. It is difficult to bowl in the first session and then the bowlers get help at night." "

India played the second practice match at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) with a pink ball. The three-day warm-up match, however, did not have many Test specialists from India - Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravichandran Ashwin, Wriddhiman Saha and Umesh Yadav. All of them got a place in India's final-11 for the Adelaide Test.

Australia have practiced at the Adelaide Oval's center wicket in the Lights and Australian captain Tim Paine has said that this will benefit his team.

"We were fortunate to have come to Adelaide a few days ago and we have trained for three consecutive days on center wickets which I think will prove to be of great benefit to our team," Penn said.

Australia has chosen their last-11 but they have not announced it yet. At the same time, India has announced its last-11.

There was doubt about who would start the innings with Mayank Agarwal and the team management has chosen Prithvi Shaw for this. Shaw, however, failed in both practice matches and managed only 62 runs in four innings. He had not even scored in New Zealand earlier this year and had scored only a half-century.

There was also a debate about the wicketkeeper and Wriddhiman Saha's experience here has been heavy on the young Rishabh Pant.

India's number-3, 4, 5 are fixed. Pujara, Kohli and Rahane will be here. Hanuma Vihari will be in sixth place.

On the other hand, the biggest problem for Australia is the opening pair. After David Warner was injured, the team had the option of Will Pukowski, but this young player has been ruled out of the first Test due to concussion. The team is likely to try the new opening pair of Marcus Harris and Matthew Wade.

Much of the number-3 will depend on Marnus Labuschen and Steve Smith. The team's bowling, however, is of the highest level. All-rounder Cameron Green is scheduled to play and with his arrival, the regular bowlers will get backup and the middle order will also be strong.


India (playing XI): Virat Kohli (captain), Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.

Australia (probable): Tim Paine (captain), Joe Burns, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschen, Nathan Lyon, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Matthew Wade.
