The 2023 Border Gavaskar Trophy kicks off as India hosts Australia in the first Test match of the four-game series in Nagpur. Entering this contest, both teams have had some dominant performances with the red ball. The Aussies took down West Indies and South Africa in two home series whereas the Indian team defeated Bangladesh in a two-game series.
The Indian team comes into this series with a huge sigh of relief as Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are back in dominant form. Similarly, Team India also gets back their premier all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja after a long injury break. These reinforcements certainly bolster the team as they hope to reach the WTC finals for the second time in a row. Another positive for India has been Mohammed Siraj, who has terrorised opposition batters with his incredible speed and accuracy.

Whereas, Australia are the best Test team in the world and has backed their ranking with dominant performances over West Indies and South Africa. In both these series, the Aussies piled up mountains of runs and replicated a similar display with the ball. The biggest concern for Team Australia will be the form of David Warner, who hasn’t been able to score big runs over the last few games and has also struggled to perform in India.
