Australia vs India 2nd Test 2020/2021 Match Preview

There was absolutely no one who expected such a dismal performance from the Indian batting line-up, especially after they had shown grit and fight in the first innings. 

The Aussies will be riding high on confidence going into the second Test.

For two days, the game was evenly balanced. Despite India’s numerous drop catches, they did take the lead in Australia v India 1st Test 2020/2021 . 

Both teams fought hard, and the two star-studded bowling attacks lived up to expectation producing some excellent spells. However, on the third morning, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood just blew away the Indian batsmen who kept nicking the ball and slumped to their lowest total in the history of Test cricket.

Now, the caravan moves to the Boxing Day Test match at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). India will be without a couple of their stars (Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami). 

Ajinkya Rahane has his task cut out to pull the team back up and get them fired up ahead of the second Test match. They will do well to forget that Test match and start afresh. 

They won’t have a lot of issues and wear a settled look despite the absence of their first-choice opener in David Warner. 

Team news: Australia

Plagued by a few injuries, Australia are still missing Will Pucovski due to concussion. Meanwhile, David Warner continues to recover from the groin injury he sustained in the second ODI. Sean Abbot suffered from a calf injury during the practice game against India. 

The rest of the squad remains the same and Australia are unlikely to make any changes for this Test match. 

Team news: India

India might see half their side rejigged. Virat Kohli is on paternity leave and flown back to India and will miss the rest of the Test series. 

Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami suffered a fractured arm after being hit by a Pat Cummins bouncer in the first test’s second innings. 

Mohammed Siraj might well make his Test debut and replace Shami. He is ruled out of the entire series as well. After having a poor game, Wriddhiman Saha and Prithvi Shaw might make way for Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill respectively. 

KL Rahul is in contention as well as he might come in for Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, there are reports that Ravindra Jadeja is fully fit and might play in place of Hanuma Vihari. 

Australia vs India 2nd Test 2020/2021 Predicted Starting XI

Australia: Joe Burns, Matthew Wade, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Tim Paine (c & wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood

India: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shubman Gill, Ajinkya Rahane (c), Hanuma Vihari/Ravindra Jadeja, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah

Key players

Mayank Agarwal2018-202012100024352.633
Steven Smith2010-202074722923962.3126

Mayank Agarwal: Mayank Agarwal is going to be a big player for India. The last time India won Test matches in Australia, Agarwal made an impressive debut and smashed a couple of 70s. 

He batted time and didn’t expose the Indian middle-order to the new ball early.

Mayank Agarwal role at the top of the order is going to be huge, especially in the absence of talisman Virat Kohli. 

Steven Smith: Steven Smith has a stellar record at the MCG and also against India. He had a rare failure in the first Test as he got out for just 1 which was his lowest score against India. 

The former Australia skipper will be itching to get back amongst the runs in the second Test. He loves playing at the MCG and has amassed 908 runs at an average of 113.50 at this venue and it includes four hundreds and three half-centuries. Moreover, Smith has now gone 12 innings without a Test hundred.
