AU A vs INDS Dream11 Prediction: Australia-A and India's test hopefuls will be looking to get into the groove for the longest form of the game when the two teams run into each other for a three-day test match starting from Friday morning at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Here is AU-A vs INDS Prediction for this fixture.
The first tour match ended in a draw after Australia A was given an improbable 131 runs to chase in 15 overs in the fourth inning with the hosts scuffling to 52/1. But the real positive for India was Ajinkya Rahane's form. The Mumbai-born right-handed batsman scored a century in a pressure situation, which should give him confidence and Indian team some teeth in the middle-order when the real fight starts with the first test match on December 17. Rahane could be a decisive factor considering he will be captaining the team from the 2nd test onwards.

Ajinkya Rahane: After an uncanny IPL, Rahane's form was a big worry for the Indian team, but he was back with a bang, scoring a well-crafted century in the first tour match. He is a good captain option in Dream 11 Prediction.
Cameron Green: Like Rahane, Green scored a century in the first tour match. He also picked up some crucial wickets. His all-round game makes him a no-nonsense option in Dream11 fantasy cricket teams.
Sean Abbott: The fiery fast bowler is no fluke to batting as well. He has been knocking on Australia's door for some time now, and this summer he got his reward.
Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami: The duo is perhaps the best of India's fast bowling unit. Bumrah, in particular, will be worth keeping an eye on after wreaking havoc in 2018-19 tour.
