India vs Australia playing 11 prediction

On the other hand, Australia has not announced its playing 11 yet and it would be interesting to see whether Cameron Green makes his debut or not. On Wednesday, Australia coach Justin Langer said that Green would debut if he gets recovered from concussion. Green was hit on the head while bowling during the warm-up match.

Adelaide pitch report

 

Historically Adelaide wicket is good for batting for first two days and starts deteriorating from Day 3 onwards, However, IND vs AUS 1st Test being a Day night game, pitch may favour pacer given the ball moves a bit more during twilight.

 

Adelaide weather report

 

According to the weather forecast, there is no chance of rainfall in Adelaide for next five days and temperature will hover around mid-20s, which is ideal for a game of cricket. 

India vs Australia 1st Test match prediction:

India would start as favourites given Australia would certainly miss the services of David Warner at the top of the batting order and India has the arsenal to rip into middle order if openers gets dismissed inside 10 Overs.
