The Indian team is preparing to play a day-night warm-up match against Australia ‘A’ starting on Friday, a contest that will serve as preparation for the first test in Adelaide. An extra roulette in Kuldeep Yadav or an additional batter in Hanuma Vihari – This selection choice will be a great consideration for the Indians.
The three-day game at the illuminated Sydney Cricket Ground will serve as a suitable simulation for the opening test, but the flat batting court here may not be ideal considering that Adelaide Oval curator Damian Hough, according to Ian Chappell, will leave around 10mm grass coverage. on the strip for the first test.
The game, which will be broadcast live, may not include captain Virat Kohli, who has hinted that he wants to continue with his own preparation routine before the test match. It could also be a tactical move to ensure the Australians don’t see a sneak peek at their long-form preparation.
