Date: Wednesday, 01 Mar 2023

Venue: Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore  

India vs Australia Preview

  • Indian spinning duo in the first two Tests of the series, Ashwin and Jadeja have combined for 31 wickets.
  • In two tests played in Indore, Virat Kohli averaged over 75.
  • India has won four and drawn one of the last five tests against Australia.


The Third Test between India and Australia begins on Wednesday morning in Indore, with India leading the series 2-0 after victories in Nagpur and Delhi. The tourists were defeated by innings and 132 runs in the first Test and by six wickets in the second game of the series. The game starts at 09:30 a.m. local time.

India was simply too powerful for Australia in Nagpur, and we expect them to take the lead early in this Test. Australia would try to respond, but India should be too strong for them at this site again.

Australia was outplayed in crucial situations again in Delhi, and their batting collapse in the second innings will have given India much more confidence. Australia will face significant challenges in this Test due to the absence of several important players.

India vs Australia Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

There may be some cloud cover on Day 1 of the Test, but clear sky and scorching temperatures are expected for the next five days.

Australia has won the toss in both games and has chosen to bat. Both captains are likely to want to bat first again in this Test.

We anticipate another spin-friendly surface for this Test Match. Batting will be easiest on Days 2 and 3 with a par score of above 350 in the first innings.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

The position of KL Rahul at the top of the order with Rohit Sharma for India has been a source of contention ahead of this Test. He got out in an unpleasant manner in the second innings of the Second Test, and Shubman Gill is eager to take his spot.

India is the favorite to win this match.


Even if Australia had the likes of David Warner and Pat Cummins available for this game, as well as all-rounder Cameron Green, most commentators believe India will easily win. Yet, without those important players, Australia’s task appears extremely difficult. Thus far in the series, India’s lower-middle order batting has been really remarkable, with someone always managing to make a score or a good partnership for the side. Our prediction is that India will win this Test and take a 3-0 lead in the series.
