Question in detailIndia Vs Australia first Test, Pune: The countdown for the thorny Test series between the world's two heavyweights has begun; just one day to go. On 23rd April when the two arc rivals encounter each other in the opening Test in Pune, both the teams will have an identical goal a win. For the visitors, the going is going to be tougher than expected given the fact that the challenge here in India is to have mental toughness that Australia doesn't at present. India, on the contrary, is a rather strong side both mentally and physically. But then it requires another match-winning performance to win another match. Even if India has brutally crushed all the touring sides this season, it's no cinch to predict the winner of IND Vs AUS first Test.
A lot of verbal duel ahead of India Vs Australia four-match Test series has left the world buzzing about Aussies' bravado and India's real potential to come dominant at home. Apparently, it's a mind game that Australia has played before the fray. As India knows Australia's instinct to get indulged in the war of word before any big series, the hosts would play to their potential and not focus on the rivals' strategy.
As even Australians have a differently contrast opinion on their strategy, they might suffer a big defeat here in India. The Australian skipper Smith believes defense will be the key to success in India, while their warhorse Warner is all set to counter Indian bowling line-up. And this is what exposes their mental feebleness and fear of defeat. Not to surprise if Australia suffers a 4-0 clean sweep. However, if they play well, India might win the series 3-0.
India has more chances to become the winner of IND Vs AUS first Test obviously because their batting pack a punch. Moreover, Ashwin-Jadeja's availability in the spin department tips the scale slightly more crooked to India's side. Another good thing the hosts would like to cash is their fast bowling attack, which once used to be their biggest woe, has now improved a lot. Evidently, all the Indian fast bowlers have been working wonders for sometimes now to help India clinch wins against countries one after the other. Will the hosts extend their winless Test streak or will the visitors stand a chance in India Vs Australia first Test? This would be interesting to see.
