The Indian top order has been struggling, with players struggling to score runs. Their only bright spots have been Rohit’s century in the first match and Pujara’s valiant 58 in the last match. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer have made appearances in the past. The spin trio of Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin has been their most potent batting weapon.
Ravindra Jadeja (22 wickets) and Ravichandran Ashwin (18 wickets) have shredded the opposition’s batting order. Last match, Umesh Yadav demonstrated his class with a 3-fer in the first innings. Axar Patel has only taken one wicket this season. Mohammed Siraj, who had a wicket off his first delivery, has also been unlucky with no wickets.
Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Srikar Bharat(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Ishan Kishan, Jaydev Unadkat, Suryakumar Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav

Australia’s batters have been unable to post big scores but have consistently played fighting knocks. Usman Khawaja (153 runs), Marnus Labuschagne (178 runs), and Peter Handscomb (128 runs) have all played well and contributed significantly to their team’s success. Travis Head has been outstanding since his comeback in the last two tests. Alex Carey and Chris Green’s all-around abilities will add depth to their middle order.
Mitchell Starc and Chris Green will be their pace duo once again. Nathan Lyon (19 wickets), Todd Murphy (11 wickets), and Mathew Kuhnemann (8 wickets) have been relentless in challenging Indian batters. We anticipate them to play an important role in this match as well.

India vs Australia Toss Prediction
If either captain wins the toss, they will look to bat first because the pitch may deteriorate as the game progresses. In this match, chasing in the fourth innings will be a difficult task.
India vs Australia Pitch Report
Ahmedabad has the largest cricket stadium in terms of seating capacity, and we anticipate a large crowd for this match as well. And any score of 300-400 runs is a huge advantage.
The Ahmedabad pitch will help the spinners, and we can expect the pitch to turn and bounce right away. Batters must work hard to score big runs here. The weather in Ahmedabad will be bright and sunny, with no weather disruptions expected.
India vs Australia Prediction
The Indian batters have been struggling, and their lower middle order has consistently come through for them. They have the best bowling attack for the conditions, but they rely heavily on Ashwin and Jadeja. Australia’s batters have given it their all in difficult conditions, with Khawaja and Labuschange leading the way. Steve Smith’s form is a major concern. Their spinners have been upto the mark with Lyon leading from the front. We expect India to win the match due to their superior team strength in home conditions. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
India is the favourite to beat Australia at the odds of 1.37.
