Betting Tips

  • Indian bowling looks very weak with Jasprit Bumrah too ruled out of the Brisbane Test. Siraj, Saini and Thakur are pretty inexperienced at this level.
  • With Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne back in form, Australia batting looks much more stable.
  • The Australian pace trip will be lethal on this spicy Gabba wicket and we expect the Indian batsmen to struggle against them. 

Our Pick Australia are favorites to win

AUS vs IND 4th Test, Prediction & Betting Tips

India have shown the spine of mettle in this series. Throughout the tour, every-time they had their back against the wall, they somehow find a way to bounce back.
With Australia and India winning 1 Test each and the third Test ending in a draw, we’re now into the final match of the series that’ll decide the winner of the series.
Read our preview as Australia host India in the final Test of the series at the Gabba. The match is scheduled to get underway on 15th January at 10:00 PM local time.

Australia will be disappointed that even after dominating most of the Sydney Test, they failed to pick up a victory. But credit for the draw must also be given to the Indian batsmen for the character they showed in the second inning.

We’re now at Brisbane which a very happy hunting ground for Australia. They have one of the best pace attacks in the world and the pitch at Gabba make them look more lethal.

Australia will be relieved to see Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne back in form. However, the form of other batsmen will again be a cause of concern. 

For India, as many as 9 Indian players have been ruled out due to injury on this tour. Ravindra Jadeja, Hanuma Vihari and Jasprit Bumrah are the latest causalities. There are few doubts about the participation of Ravi Ashwin as well. 

Mohammed Siraj, who’s just a couple of Tests old, will be leading India’s bowling attack in the final Test that tells that they’re in big problem.

Navdeep Saini was wayward in the second Test and one of T Natarajan or Shardul Thakur will be India’s third pacer. To fair, this bowling attack looks very weak. Ravi Ashwin will also be less effective on the Gabba. 

From the batsmen perspective, Shubhman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant batted well in the second innings of the Sydney Test. They once again will be responsible for getting India to a big score. 

Overall, injuries have dented India’s chances badly and looking at their bowling lineup we think Australia are massive favourites here.

IND Team News

India will have to make some forced changes into their playing XI. Hanuma Vihari, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah are ruled out of the final test. Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur and Mayank Agarwal are most probable replacements. 

IND Key Players

  • Ajinkya Rahane - Ajinkya Rahane has a fabulous record in Australia. He scored a brilliant hundred in Melbourne and his team need him to play another such knock in the upcoming Test
  • Chetshwar Pujara - Cheteshwar Pujara scored back to back fifties at Sydney. He’s been good in the tournament and will be India’s key wicket on the pacy Gabba wicket 
  • Ravichandran Ashwin - Ashwin has a great record against the left handers and Australia have few in their team. Also, he has bowled exceptionally well against Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith. In the absence of Bumrah, he has a huge responsibility on his shoulders.

 After being blown away in the Adelaide Test, India bounced back in style to beat the hosts at Melbourne and secured a famous draw in Sydney.

Final Verdict

Australia to beat India at 1.40 at Betway

AUS vs IND Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Rishabh Pant at 8.5 is a solid pick. Pant played a blistering knock of 97 in the second inning and set India up for a famous win. Had he played a little longer, India might have won the match.  

  • Batsmen

    Steve Smith at 10.0 , Marnus Labuschagne at 9.0,  Cheteshwar Pujara at 9.5 and Rohit Sharma at 9.0 will form a strong batting order. Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschangne and Cheteshwar Pujara batted brilliantly in both innings of the previous Test while Rohit Sharma fetched himself a 50 in the second inning. 

  • All-rounders

    Ravi Ashwin at 9.5 and Chris Green at 8.0 are the all rounders of our team. Both of them had a decent game at Sydney.

  • Bowlers

    Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood at 9.0 and Mohammed Siraj at 8.0 form a quality pace attack. The Australian trip will be lethal on this Gabba wicket while Siraj is the best bet to pick wickets for India

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Steve Smith is our preferred choice for captain while Cheteshwar Pujara can be backed as his deputy.

AUS vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rohit Sharma, Steve Smith(c), Cheteshwar Pujara(vc), Marnus Labuschagne

  • All Rounder:Ravi Ashwin, Chris Green

  • Wicket Keeper:Rishabh Pant

  • Bowler:Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Siraj
