Pitch Report

Situated on the War Memorial Drive against the backdrop of St. Peter’s Cathedral, this pitch is regarded as a batsmen’s paradise and the best batting pitch in Australia. Cricdaddy’s cricket match prediction tips say that this pitch works well for the batsmen for the first three days, where the pitch manages to stay solid and square. Starting on the fourth day, this pitch starts settling down and wears out making it a great track for spinners who duly exercise this advantage to claim rapid wickets.

Overall Match Prediction

Both the inclusion of Rohit Sharma and exclusion of Virat Kohli after the first test would affect the team’s performance as predicted by all the Ind vs Aus cricket match prediction sites. Ajinkya Rahane would be handed the duties of captain after Virat Kohli’s departure. The middle-order for India has shown promise with some solid and steady batsmen and all-rounders. 

Cricdaddy’s cricket match prediction coverage during the second practice match between India and Australia showed that the pink ball softened and was pretty difficult to ball around the beginning of the third day. This would be quite a challenge for the bowlers of both the teams and especially India who play their first day-night Test in Australia as well as their first-ever overseas pink-ball test. 

The bowlers will have to be quick and decisive to judge their bowling techniques according to the changes in the ball and the pitch. Moreover, India has a huge and impactful bowling lineup, which could effectively team up against the powerful batting lineup of Australia. 

Australia on the other hand has brought up a strong team and defeating them at their conditions would be quite a challenge for the Men in Blue. Rohit Sharma, who is back with the Indian squad, is expected to give a promising performance in the Ind vs Aus Test series. All Ind vs Aus cricket match prediction sites predict that it will be a heavy tussle with no outright winner of the match. The predictions say that the match would extend till the fifth day and finally end up in a draw.
