The four-match Test series between India and Australia is scheduled to start on December 17. The first Test of the series will be played in Adelaide, which will be a day-night match. This will be the first time India will be seen playing the pink ball on Australian Australian soil. In the one-day matches before the Test series, Team India suffered a 2-1 defeat against Australia, but in the T20 series, the team returned to the series to take a 2-1 lead. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins said in the first Test match with the Pink Ball that the captain’s strategy would be tested in the Tests in Adelaide due to the different speeds of the ball.

Pat Cummins said, ‘We’re thrilled, not nervous. This will be a little different from the usual test match. There will be some in the floodlight, in which the speed of the ball varies. When the flood lights are on after dinner, the ball will bounce and move differently. In such a situation, the captains have to be careful about when to bowl and when to bat. India won the Test series in Australia for the first time in 2018-19, but did not have David Warner and Steve Smith in the squad. The number one Test fast bowler said, ‘We want to win our home match. India had a better team than us two years ago, which beat us in that series. Now David Werner and Smith are back in the team with two of the best batsmen in the world. This will help. Apart from this, youngsters like Travis Head and Marnus Lubson are also very talented.
