India vs Cricket Australia XI: India will lock horns with Cricket Australia XI for a four-day practice game starting tomorrow. Virat Kohli and Co were seen prepping up for the game tomorrow. It will be a nice outing for the Indians who are coming off a T20I series. It will give the Indians a chance to get a feel of the red cherry ahead of the 1st Test at Adelaide. Parthiv Patel was seen batting in the nets, whereas Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja had a bowl. BCCI posted the pictures and captioned it as, “Prep underway as
#TeamIndia gear up for their tour game against CA XI.” Also Read - IPL 2020, Match 3 Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
It would be interesting to see who opens the batting for India as the squad comprises four openers in Murali Vijay, Parthiv Patel, Prithvi Shaw, and KL Rahul. It would also be interesting to see who are the spinners picked and where does Rohit Sharma bat.
Earlier, the Virat Kohli-led side has finished playing a three-match T20I series which ended in a 1-1 draw. It was unfortunate frm the Indian point of view as the 2nd T20I was called off due to rain after the Men in Blue were in a state of authority.
