India return to Australia for a Test series after beating Australia in the previous Border-Gavaskar series in Australia in 2018/19. While the victory was achieved on the back of some stunning bowling performances from the India pacers, the Aussies were without key player, David Warner and Steven Smith, who were banned at the time.

The two have returned with aplomb to the national setup and the hosts are also bolstered by the addition of Marnus Labuschagne in the batting line-up as they gear up to face India again. Meanwhile, the bowling stocks are intact with Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins forming the deadly trio that destroyed England in their backyard.
India, meanwhile, have tons of reasons to be on the back-foot ahead of the Test series. Their skipper, Virat Kohli will depart for paternity leave after the first day/night Test at Adelaide. Ishant Sharma, a key component of their pace attack last time around, is injured and out while Rohit Sharma, the opener is unavailable for the first two Tests at least. Ravindra Jadeja, who suffered an injury in the ongoing T20I series, is also in doubt for the first Test.

Betting Odds 3rd Test Australia vs India
India have played as many as 48 Tests in Australia against Australia, winning just seven Tests and losing 29. 12 of these matches have been drawn affairs. The tour Down Under has been a very challenging one for the Indians, the batters in particular, as they have to adjust to the extra bounce in the wickets.
Their first ever Test win on Australian soil came 1977/78 when they won two Test matches. In 1980/81, 2003/04 and 2007/08, India recorded a win each, drawing the series on two of those occasions. In 2018/19, they recorded two wins and drew a Test to take the series 2-1.
Probable XI India Test Team: Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (later replaced by Shubman Gill), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
Probable XI Australia Test Team: Joe Burns, David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Tim Paine, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood
Ajinkya Rahane – One of India’s finest overseas batter, Rahane will also have the additional responsibility of leading the side once Virat Kohli moves away after the first Test match. The middle-order batsman is a terrific player of pace and bounce and could be the most important batsman for India on this tour.
Josh Hazlewood –The Australian pace bowler lives in the shadow of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, but is a brilliant bowler to have with the red ball. Hazlewood has appeared threatening with his extra bounce and nip off the surface in the limited-overs series against India already and could be in line to trouble the visitors more in the upcoming Test series.
Jasprit Bumrah – The most threatening of India’s pace bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah recorded figures of 6/33 in a Test in Australia last time around. He finished as the joint-highest wicket-taker in the series with 21 wickets at an average of 17 and appears to be the most potent of India’s seamers as they land in Australia.
