The first Test between Australia and India concluded in a dramatic way when the smooth going visitors lost the rhythm and surrendered the game by 48 runs. The Kangaroos amassed 517 for the loss of seven wickets when Michael Clarke declared the first innings followed by 5-290 declared in the second. India responded nicely by scoring 444 in the first one and collapsed to 315 in the second innings while chasing a target of 364. The visitors were marching aggressively towards the target but lost their last five wickets for 38 mere runs. The hosts are enjoying a lead of 1-0 that will boost them up for the remaining Tests whereas the tourists can make a comeback as well.

Players to watch

The right arm off spinner of the Kangaroos, Nathan Lyon, was unplayable by the rival batsmen and ended up with his career best figures of 12-286 while Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle assisted him superbly. David Warner dispatched back to back centuries in both innings, Steven Smith along with Michael Clarke powered hundreds whereas Chris Rogers, Shane Watson and Mitchell Marsh are capable of producing big innings. Michael Clarke will miss the remaining series because of the hamstring injury and chronic back problem.

The stand in captain of India, Virat Kohli, maintained his form on the fast tracks by smashing hundred in each innings, Murali Vijay missed the three figures by just one run as Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma were among runs. Karn Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Varun Aaron were the most successful bowlers for the visitors.

  1. Here is an interesting record to start the analysis with. Australia have not lost a single Test at Brisbane since 1988. given the current state of Indian batting lineup it is highly unlikely that Indians will be able to score freely against Aussie pace attack. And top that with that guy Nathan Lyon who spun Indians. This was really hilarious to see how Indians were dancing on the tunes of a non-subcontinent spinner.

    Winning the toss will be first key followed by batting first. If Kangaroos bat first then India can kiss goodbye this Test too. If Kohli guesses the toss then he will have some chances.

    It would be risky to hope Indians will recover again like they did in the first innings in first Test match.

    My trading strategy will be to back Australia at BetfairBetfair. If they are batting first then we will have less opportunity to make money as odds are already around 1.5. If they are bowling first then keep backing them as their odds go up.

    There is very less chances of Draw. So it looks like one way toll free Highway for Kangaroos to hop.
