AUS vs IND 4th Test Weather and Pitch Report
As per the weather forecast, intermittent rainfall is expected to be witnessed in the city on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The problem doesn’t end on the weekend alone. On Monday and Tuesday, moderate rain is expected to come downpouring at the Gabba, making it difficult for the organisers to have uninterrupted gameplay.
The pitch at Brisbane is another wicket that could be batsman-friendly but also has something in it for the bowlers. While the pacers might have to slog harder to extract something of the wicket, the spinners can get some extra bounce in Brisbane.
Average 1st Innings Score
The average first innings score at this venue is 340.
