Who will win Australia vs India First Test 2007-08

India is now going to start their tour Test series with the warm-up match against Victoria on 20 December, 2007 before they finally take on Australia in the first Test on 26th December. India vs Australia Test series has already caught the attention to all cricket fans. Both Australia and India teams are now in good form. In the last India vs Australia test series, India could make it 1-1 draw.

India will play a four match Test series in Aussies soil. It is a long 75 days tour for Indian cricket team. So, it should be a great challenge for India team to prove their Test performance outside the Indian subcontinent. India has got many big wins against every Test playing team in their own soil. Now, they will face Australia in their soil that should be a real Test series for both tourist India and host Australia team.

India team is now in good form. Recently this year, they have defeated arch rival Pakistan team after 27 years in their home ground. So, obviously Indian fans are now hoping to see some impressive performance from their cricket heroes. After getting a historical win against arch rival Pakistan team, Indian players are now confident enough to play well. Some Indian players like Sourav Ganguly, Wasim Jaffer and VVS Laxman are now in good form. Sourav Ganguly has got back his prime form with one double-century and century against Pakistan in home series. V.V.S. Laxman played some impressive performance in his pervious Test matches against Australia team. He got 4 Test centuries against Australia where his best score was 281.

You should admit that Australian cricket team is the world number one cricket team both Test and ODI team. They are now in good form. This year they defeated Sri Lanka team. Their cricket more developed in cricket game. They can play both aggressive and defensive style game with the demand of situation. Australian cricket teams is best for their pace attacking and lengthy but aggressive opening pair. Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has come back from injury. Now he is passing his great time with good form. Now, Australia also can see more three pacers like Shaun Tait, Mitchell Johnson, and Stuart Clark. No doubt, Indian batsmen are going to face strong pace attacking. Brad Hogg has been selected in the 15-men squad but his playing in the main squad in not sure in Australia team.

No doubt, Indian cricket team will also have to play aggressive cricket if they want to get minimum draw in Test series. That is why, selectors of BCCI have recalled Virender Sehwag. Indian selectors have selected two professional spinners ahead of the tour in Australia. Indian pacer Sreesanth has been opted from the 16-men squad for his eye problem. Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh and Irfan Pathan are the leading bowler for pace attacking.

Australia vs Indian Test series means fighting between batting strength and pace attacking. Indian cricket team is more famous for their strong batting line up. The top batsmen are now in good form and recently most of them also made healthy score in their home series. So, fans can expect more to see some impressive performance against Australia. Australia’s pace attacking is so effective.

However, cricket is totally uncertain game where Test cricket is full of miracle and uncertain. No one can say what will happen in the next ball. So, it is also tough to me to say who will be the winner team in Australia vs India Test series.

I know most of you are eagerly waiting to see the match live. However, India based TV channel Star Cricket will telecast the four match Test series live. So, it should be better if you want to know the name of series winner.
