Australian Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against India for the 4 Test Match Series on 9th February. This series is considered to be an enthralling one as many experts believe that Australia has got all the bases covered. The resurgence of Usman Khawaja at the top of the order has meant that Smith & Warner can play their natural game.
India has dealt with a massive blow as Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the 1st Test match. The batter has played invaluable knocks for the team in the last couple of years. It won’t be wrong to say that Australia has got a slight edge over India given their recent triumphs.

Usman Khawaja’s Visa Gets Approved
The dashing left handed batter Usman Khawaja didn’t board the flight with his team mates on 1st February due to visa issues. The batters papers were sent to MEA (Minister of External Affairs) and the Indian Consulate in Melbourne immediately issued his Visa. According to sources, it is assumed that the problem arrived as Khawaja was born in Pakistan and then later moved to Australia when he was 3.

Stern Test for India
India has the wood over Australia as Australia hasn’t won Test Series in India since 2004. The Men in Blue would be hoping that former skipper Virat Kohli hits form as the batter had a rare off Test Series against Bangladesh where he was seen struggling.
Australia would be worried as their speedster Mitchell Starc has been ruled out of the 1st Test match due to an injury. The pacer recently against West Indies & South Africa had created a havoc with his immaculate line & lengths. At the same time, he is someone who could provide handy runs.
