Australia vs India
« on: November 13, 2020, 09:43:01 AM »

Squads announced for Test series:
Australia: Sean Abbott, Joe Burns, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Michael Neser, Tim Paine (c)(w/k), James Pattinson, Will Pucovski, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (w/k), Rishabh Pant (w/k), Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Umesh Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, R. Ashwin, Mohammad Siraj.

Kohli will leave after the day night 1st Test in Adelaide as Mrs Kohli is due to give birth to a mini Kohli. Dont see India being competitive without their main man. Rohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma(might be added later) and Saha all carrying injuries.

Hoping to see Pucovski given a chance, looks a serious player. Green seems like he has the potential to be the Aussie Stokes, hugely exciting prospect too.

Sadly think that India will struggle to compete in the test series with none of the players having played any cricket resembling the longer format in the past 6 months or so. The only play time most of them have had is the IPL. Also, its always frustrating to see that BCCI never plans playing enough tour matches prior to the series when playing overseas.

Pucovski looks very tidy. On first viewing Green doesn't look like a player who should have the stats he does! Be interesting to see if he plays, could be a bit of an lbw candidate at test level.

Think there's just something inherently exciting about someone who can hit hundreds and bowl high 80s!

At least it's some actual proper cricket rather than slap and tickle. How many tests is it?

3 x ODI's, 3 x T20I's as soon as everyone gets out of quarrantine, then two x 3 day matches (Aus A v India A), and the 4 tests.
Adelaide 17 dec (day/night),
Melbourne 26 dec
Sydney 7 Jan
Brisbane 15 jan.

Will be interesting times selection wise, with a lot of guys banging down the door, that can no longer be ignored.

With Warner and Smith back, even with Kohli in, I think its gonna be an Aussie whitewash. Then with Kohli out after 1st test, doesn't look good for Ind.

I imagine Test attacks will target Pucovski with the short stuff. Already had several concussions and stopped playing for quite a while. Will make for good watching either way. Can certainly play off the front foot, I watched highlights of his double ton last week

The visitors faint hopes seem to have receded further - Ishant Sharma ruled out from the Test series with some stomach muscle injury. Rohit Sharma will miss at least the first two Tests.
Rohit was supposedly a candidate to be stand in captain when Kohli leaves after Adelaide, could be a scenario where he never gets another Test cap.
