The four-match Test series between India and Australia starts on December 17. The first Test of the series will be played at De Dale, which will be a day-night match. India will be seen playing pink ball on Australian soil for the first time. In the ODIs before the Test series, Team India had lost 2-1 to Australia, but in the T20 series, the team won the series 2-1. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins has said in the first Test with a pink ball that the captain’s tactics will be tested in the Test at La Dale.

Pat Cummins said, ‘We’re nervous, not nervous. This will be slightly different than a normal test match. There will be some in the floodlight, in which the speed of the ball is different. After dinner when the flood light is on the ball will pick up and go differently. In such a situation, the captains have to be careful about when to bowl and when to bat. Australia won the Test series for the first time in 2011-19-1-19, but did not include David Warner and Steve Smith. The number one fast bowler said, ‘We want to win our home matches. Two years ago we had a better team than India, which beat us in that series. Now David Warner and Smith are back on the team with two of the best batsmen in the world. This will help. Also, youngsters like Travis Head and Marnus Labushen are very smart.
