AUS vs IND 1st Test Dream 11 Fantasy Predictions: The first Test of a 4-Match series between Australia and India will be played on Thursday at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.
This will be India’s first overseas Day-Night fixture and it promises to be a blockbuster. India won the previous series in 2018-19 and they will be hoping to repeat the same in 2020-21.
With Rohit Sharma not expected to play until the third Test in Sydney, the visitors will be hoping to get their campaign started on the right note. India has enjoyed success in Adelaide before, winning two and drawing one in five Tests that they have played there since the last 20 years. However, the Pink Ball will be a different game altogether.
Australia, on the other hand, has played seven Pink Ball Tests ever since 2015 and have not lost a single game. The hosts have been grappling with injuries to David Warner and other youngsters but they have the services of Steve Smith, the best Test batsman who averages 84 against India. His presence along with Marnus Labuschagne will be a big boost for the Australian team.
Talking about the bowling attack of both the sides, it will be interesting to see whether the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami get the better of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins.
This is a perfect event for the fantasy sports enthusiast to switch on. So here are the match details, pitch report, weather forecast, probable playing 11 and dream11 fantasy team predictions for the 1st Test between Australia and India.

AUS vs IND Weather and Pitch Report
For all the days, right from Thursday to Monday, the weather is fine with very low chances of rain. Although there are 10% chances of rain on Thursday, Sunday and Monday, it will not delay the match much.
The pitch in Adelaide used for the Pink Ball Test has always helped fast bowlers. There will be enough swing with the new ball during the day and it will gradually become easier to bat on.
However, in the twilight period, the batsmen might face some problems in encountering the vision. In the night time, the pitch gets spiced up and the ball moves off the deck and in the air much more frequently.
