IND vs AUS - The Ultimate Show?
Cricket lovers across the globe will say perhaps the oldest rivalry in test cricket, the biggest series and showdown has been the Ashes. Pak vs Ind always brings the crowd but that is mostly in ODI and T20I (perhaps because they don't play as many tests). But Indian tour of Australia has become this new pinnacle where India has outshined Australia in their own backyard.
Any series down under hasn't been easy for any visiting team. But Indian Cricket team has fought under Kohli captaincy better than most other visiting teams. It is the eye test, I don't have stats to back up my statements, so please save the hate mail. Bigger question is that Ind vs Aus has become the biggest billing in Test Cricket in recent years. It is going to be the first Test Cricket series to be streamed in 120 nations (that's HUGE!!!!!).
Kohli is only in for the first test, but this will be a test for both teams. Starc hasn't been his best self, will Cummins and Hazelwood be enough? Will Rohit or Shubman Gill play 2nd test? Will this be the series that Tim Paine calls it quits? So many questions, so little time, 9pm sharp tonight.
For all Cricket lovers, sit back and enjoy the Cricket and let the best team win.
