India will play the Day-Night Test in Australia for the first time
This time on the Australian tour, Team India will play the Day-Night test for the first time. The second Test of the series in Adelaide from 11 December will be the day-night test match.
Australia’s record in Pink Ball Test is very good. The Australian team has played eight day-night Test matches so far and has won seven of these and one match has been a draw.
Smith and Warner in the team
In 2018-19, when India beat Australia 2–1 in the Test series, it was said that Team India has defeated the weak Australian team. Because both David Warner and Steve Smith were not in that series. Both these players were then banned due to being found guilty of ball-tampering.
This time both of them will be part of the Australian team. In such a situation, defeating Australia will not be easy.
