Can India continue to dominate?
Aussies and Indians move to Perth to play the second test. After Adelaide win, India is definitely the more confidant side. Perth pitch is always known for its greenish texture. Better pace attack will definitely have the edge. Two changes are least expected from Indian side. Rohit Sharma and Ashwin are ruled out of test match due to injuries.
Will Virat Kohli score a ton in second test?
No big scores are registered in Adelaide. If India had to register a high score, Kohli, who did not had a great test batting wise ,should score big. Rishabh Pant should think about survival too while playing test cricket. He seems to know only one gear. Some times test cricket is about survivability too. India announced thirteen men side yesterday which included 5 pacers. Bhuvi is favorite of the bench players in first test likely to play in second test. Hanuma Vihari is the likely to replace Rohit sharma.. If India decides to play five pacers, Hanuma Vihari can be handy bowling turners, Adelaide pitch was tailor made for test cricket. Al l three results were on the cards till the final session of final days play.
Team management is expecting big scores from KL Rahul and Murali Vijay. Cannot complain about bowling department after how they performed in first test. Unfortunately Ravi Ashwin has to sit out due to injury. Indian batsmen will have challenging task facing Mitchell Starc on Perth pitch. Nathon Lyon has vast experience at his venue. He picked up seven wickets in the first class match held here last month. There is chance of either Usman Khwaja or Shaun Marsh to open the batting with Marcus Harris. Aron Finch, who opened the batting in previous test, might be demoted to lower order.
- Hanuma Vihari to pick two wickets,
- UsmanKhawaja to score Fifty.
- Not more than 350 runs in first innings if India bats first.
