AUS vs IND Fantasy Prediction: Australia vs India 4th Test – 15 January 2021 (Brisbane). The series is brilliantly poised at 1-1, and this game promises to be a thriller.
Hosts Australia will take on India in the 4th test match of the four matches series. The series is level at 1-1, and this game is the series decider.
Australia almost confirmed that they would come into this game with a 2-1 lead, but India had other plans. Will Pucovski is out due to a shoulder injury, whereas Marcus Harris will occupy his spot. Smith & Labuschagne were at their best in Sydney and would like to continue their form. Pat Cummins is bowling beautifully, whereas he would expect his partners to bowl well on this ground.
Team India were at their very best in the last game, and they have a real chance to seal the series. However, there are a lot of injury concerns in this game for the visitors. Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari, and Jasprit Bumrah are already out, whereas there is a concern over R Ashwin as well. Washington Sundar is likely to replace Jadeja, whereas Shardul can replace Jasprit Bumrah.
The average 1st innings score at this ground is 337 runs, whereas the 4th innings score is 163 runs. This surface is the best surface for the Pacers in Australia.
Probable XI for both sides:-
Australia – David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine, Cameron Green, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood.
India – Rohit Sharma, Shubhman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Wriddhiman Saha, Washington Sundar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Navdeep Saini.
