India and Australia will lock horns for the third time in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy at Indore’s Holkar Stadium. The hosts retained the BGT after two convincing wins against a tame Australian side, which has looked out of sorts. But now the Aussies would hope to save face and put up a decent fight to at least pull off some sort of result in their favour.
But before the two teams go head to head, here is a look at the picture painted by numbers and statistics and who they depict could be the winner.
The Australian team has a better chance to win the toss as they have won the last three tosses in Test matches.
India enters this fixture as the favourite and will hope to whitewash the Aussies at home. Looking back at the first two Tests, Team India has stuck to their winning strategy of relying on their spin attack. Similarly, the Indian batters, despite a few struggles, have managed to hold their own in tough batting conditions. Hence the hosts continue to have an upper hand in the fixture.
Predicted first innings score and Average first innings total:
The Holkar Stadium in Indore has always had a batting-friendly surface. The average first innings score here is 353 runs. Whereas the predicted first innings score is expected to be between 280-320.
