Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023: Australia to make major changes after 1st Test match loss against India

Ind vs Aus

In the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy competition, India trounced the Kangaroos by an inning and 132 runs in the first Test match, winning by a huge margin.

Kangaroos will make significant alterations to their starting X1 ahead of the second Test match set for Delhi.

They lost this game due to their inability to play spin in the Indian conditions.

The worst mistake they made was refusing to play a practise game in India prior to the first match, which ultimately resulted to their defeat.

Major changes will be made to Kangaroos, including the return of Travis Head in place of Matt Renshaw.

Instead of Mitchell Swepson, who will be returning home for the birth of his child, they have Matthew Kuhnemann on board.

Cameroon Green, an all-around player, and Mitchell Starc, a fast bowler, are both scheduled to play in the second Test.

India would be eager to win the Border-Gavaskar trophy by a score of 3-1 or 4-0 to advance to the World Tennis Championship final.

Given their high win percentage, Australia has nearly qualified for the WTC final, and even if they lose all four of their matches against India, they will still advance to the WTC final.

Due to the amount of skill on display by both teams, the India-Australia series is frequently hailed as the biggest cricket tournament.

Rohit Sharma led India side is pretty dominating in home conditions and they would not let their chance to qualify as finalist of WTC 2nd edition.

The final match will be played on Oval in June 2023.
