AUS vs IND Today Match Prediction 3rd test Australia vs India dream11 team Today 7 January

AUS vs IND today match prediction: The series is evenly poised as it stands but Australia are certainly ahead in this series as they will have to play a weakened Indian side who are without their lead pacers in Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami and Umesh Yadav. On the other hand, Australia will be welcoming David Warner at the top of the order who adds further stability to their already strong batting line up.

Strengths

Australia (AUS)

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

  • They are bolstered by the return of the beast in David Warner. He is a run machine when it comes to the Australian conditions.
  • Australian lower order have shown very good resistance and they have runs under their belt as well.
  • Cameron Green looked solid with the bat in the previous game and him at #6 adds massive stability to that Australian side.
  • Steve Smith's poor run of form is only a terrible sign for India as a player of his caliber is going to come back hard in supreme style.

India (IND)

  • Ajinkya Rahane's form is a big plus in the absence of Virat Kohli
  • Indian bowling is shouldered by Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah magnificently.
  • Shubman Gill was positive in his approach in his very first game.
  • The addition of Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja has certainly added firepower to India's lower middle order.

Weaknesses

Australia (AUS)

  • The form of Travis Head is their only concern but he might not get an opportunity in the 3rd test to showcase his skills as Steve Smith will score a big hundred.

India (IND)

  • Their bowling is further dented by the void of Umesh Yadav.
  • India will be playing their fourth choice seamer which will only play into the hands of Australia.

Pat Cummins: The #1 bowler and easily one of the all time greats has to be a mandatory pick in every fantasy team. He is sure to pick bagful of wickets in Sydney.

Nathan Lyon: The offspinner mightn’t have had the best of the series so far but he is a seasoned campaigner and is sure to spin a web around Indians in the 3rd game.

Other picks: Josh Hazlewood, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Starc, and Marnus Labuschagne can all be good picks.
