India beat Australia by an inning and 132 runs in the first match of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2022-23 to go 1-0 up in the four-match series. The Aussies looked clueless against the spin twin of Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin as they bagged seven and eight wickets respectively in the match. Jadeja also scored a crucial half-century on the comeback. Meanwhile, captain Rohit Sharma led the way with the bat, scoring a century on a challenging pitch. For Australia, Todd Murphy was the only positive in the game as the debutant bagged seven wickets. Now, with the second match to be played on another turning track, Australia will be scratching their heads yet again.

India had quite a few performers in the first Test. While Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin starred with seven and eight wickets respectively, Rohit Sharma scored a much-needed century. Jadeja also scored a half-century and so did Axar Patel to propel India to 400. All these players looked in a great rhythm and will be key players for India yet again. So, all four can be included in the fantasy team. Apart from these four players, Mohammed Siraj can be also picked.
From the visiting camp, Todd Murphy is the first top pick considering how the off-spinner performed in the first Test. Nathan Lyon can also prove to be a value pick. Meanwhile, in batting, Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are the top players who can be included in the fantasy team.
