Lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides in AUS vs IND today match prediction

Strengths

Australia (AUS)

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

  • Steve Smith. Enough said
  • Experience of playing handful of games with the pink ball.
  • The form of Marnus Labuschagne will make their middle order doubly strong

India (IND)

  • Indian middle order has been in good form as both Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane hit some runs in the practice game along with Hanuma Vihari.

Weaknesses

Australia (AUS)

  • The absence of David Warner at the top of the order will hurt them as he is a different beast altogether in Australia.
  • The other opener in Joe Burns is not in the best of form.

India (IND)

  • India are not exposed to quality fast bowling in day-night tests.
  • The absence of Ishant Sharma will hurt them to a great deal as he has been doing the most difficult job of holding one end with the old ball in the last year and a half.
  • The form of Prithvi Shaw is going to end up Cheteshwar Pujara batting in the 3rd over of the game.

AUS vs IND dream11 team prediction tips

This game will have some obvious choices for fantasy teams and lets take a look at them in AUS vs IND dream11 prediction

Steve Smith: He has 1429 runs in 10 tests at an average of 84 against India. Surely, if these stats aren’t enough for one to make him the captain in dream11, he has 7 100s against India in the last 8 tests he played and this stat should be enough for one to pick him in fantasy leagues

Jasprit Bumrah: He was seen in good rhythm in the practice game and one should try to pack the fantasy team with as many bowlers as possible as both the teams have strong bowling attack.

Pat Cummins: The #1 bowler in the test cricket will be back and roaring after being rested in the T20I series. He has been the #1 bowler in the world for a reason and he walks straight into any batting lineup.

Josh Hazlewood: We saw how he troubled Indian batters in white ball cricket and this being his most preferred format will only bring more headaches to the Indian batsmen. He is sure to pick a handful of wickets

Other picks: Marnus Labuschagne, Cheteshwar Pujara, Nathan Lyon and Cameron Green are all good picks.

Today AUS vs IND match score: Team batting first will look to post around 350 to 400

Today match pitch report: The wicket will be a good sporting wicket and the ball is expected to do that extra bit under lights making the lives of the batters difficult
