IND vs AUS : Indore’s Holkar Stadium is now ready for the India vs Australia 3rd Test. The third match of the four-Test series is going to start from March 1. Meanwhile, discussion has started regarding the match that how will be the pitch of Indore. The two matches that have been held so far in Delhi and Nagpur, both the matches ended in three days. After this, now the question of how the pitch will be in this match has also started to arise. Although it is believed that the pitch of the next match will also be made such that it will be helpful for the spinners, but this time the picture may change. There are still two days left in the match and the pitch will change in these two days only. But the news that is coming out about the pitch is good for Australia. But this is not bad news for Team India as well and it is also being known that there will be an equal match between both the teams and the team which performs better will win.
India and Australia can get red clay pitch in Indore
India vs Australia series match will be held in Indore. Australia’s team is going to play Test in Indore for the first time. On the other hand, the team India has won the two Tests that it has played here. But let’s talk about the pitch first. According to the information received about the pitch here, red clay pitch can be found. If this happens then the pitch here can be bouncy. This will help the ball come to the bat well, but at the same time the fast bowlers are also expected to get help in the beginning. Australian pitches are usually bouncy and kangaroo batsmen are used to batting in such conditions. In such a situation, the batsmen who have not been able to score runs so far will have a chance to help their team win by playing big innings. In the two matches that have taken place so far, Australia has won the toss and batted first, but not even once has the team been able to post a big score. In the first Nagpur Test, the team was reduced to only 177 runs in 63.5 overs and in the second match which took place in Delhi, the team scored 263 runs in 78.4 overs. But the average first innings score in Indore is around 350. That is, if Australia bats first, then the score can go beyond 300 for the first time. Although Pat Cummins is not there in this match and Steve Smith will be seen captaining in his place. On the other hand, if Team India wins the toss, then it is possible that captain Rohit Sharma may decide to bat first in this.
The team batting first can be in advantage
Although Team India has achieved an unassailable lead in the series, but Rohit Sharma’s effort will be to win the next match and capture the series, while for Australia, this will be the only match to return. Even if the series ends in a draw, the Border Gavaskar trophy will remain with India. While these remaining two matches are very important for both India and Australia to become number one in the ICC Test rankings, this series is also very important to reach the final of the ICC World Test Championship. Team India will win one more match and secure its place in the final, but if Australia’s team loses both the matches then it will have to face Sri Lanka again. In such a situation, Australia’s going to the final will depend on Sri Lanka. If Sri Lanka wins both their matches, then Australia will also be in danger of being eliminated, but if Sri Lanka’s team loses even one match, then Australia will also get a direct entry into the WTC final. However, it remains to be seen what will happen in the third Test match to be held in Indore.
