Australia vs India - 1st Test Match Preview & Prediction

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

His name is Archie Schiller and he has already joined with the Australian team during the practice sessions ahead of the four match Test series against India.

However, Langer said Kohli and Co. are a good team and the hosts will show respect to the visitors.

Australia were plunged in crisis after the ball-tampering scandal in March this year saw Cricket Australia handing out year-long bans on Steve Smith and David Warner.

Australia have selected the newest member of their Test team and he is just six years of age!

"Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test all-rounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the all-rounder position becomes important".

"We know he's good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at test level".

"We're taking the opportunity at the moment to send him back to play a Shield game, get some more cricket under his belt, knowing at some stage we're probably going to need him". The four test match series between India and Australia will begin on December 6 in Adelaide Oval.

Ballon d’Or 2018: Hours before ceremony, official victor leaked
After 13 games, the Old Lady have won 12 and drawn just one, leaving them eight points ahead of second-placed Napoli. "I said many times , winning a sixth Ballon d'Or is not an obsession", the Portuguese legend told France Football.

"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.

Batsmen Travis Head and Peter Handscomb were preferred to Marsh, piling more pressure on the bowlers, while Marcus Harris will make his debut as opener.

"We obviously have a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if we need to", said Paine.

"It's probably unlikely we'll use the three quicks as much we will this game through the whole series as it wears on".

"All our three quicks go in really fresh so we've got confidence in them, particularly at the start of the series".

India are the number one ranked Test team in the world right now and they will never have a better chance of winning a Test series in Australia having failed to do so in any of their previous 11 attempts.

"They haven't had great success in Australia in the past, as Australia haven't had in India. This time around, we hope we don't disappoint our fans", Rohit said.
