IND Vs AUS, Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Live Streaming: When And Where To Watch India Vs Australia, 1st Test
The Australia series will be India captain Rohit Sharma's biggest test in red-ball cricket. Check live streaming details of IND vs AUS 1st Test.
New Delhi: India would be aiming for a kill once again when Rohit Sharma’s men take on the mighty Australians in the first of four Tests in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy that starts on Thursday at the Vidarbha Cricket Association stadium in Nagpur. The outcome of this series will determine who qualifies for the World Test Championship final in June.
The back-to-back series defeats in their own den (2018-19 and 2020-21) have hurt Pat Cummins and his players and they certainly have revenge on its mind, even though it will be easier said than done on a pitch that promises appreciable turn from first day itself.

For Rohit, who has unfortunately missed all the Test matches or series against bigger teams either due to injuries or illness, would like to emulate his predecessor Kohli in leading the team to another World Test Championship final.
For that to happen, India will need a clear two-match victory margin and Rohit’s biggest weapon of execution will be his quartet of spinners, out of which three are supposed to play. Not to forget, his batters need to rise up to Nathan Lyon’s challenge.
On the other hand, the visitors will be missing Cameron Green and Josh Hzlwwood due to injuries. Pacer Mitchell Starc will also miss the first Test and will be available from the second game.
