India vs Australia Battle of the Titans
[History of the Border Gavasakr Trophy]
Considering the history, a 2 test match series does not adequately give either side the billing they deserve. The sense of spectacle is lost. If Australia fail to adapt to the conditions in the opening test then the series will already be out of their hands. Come the 13th October we’ll probably be none the wiser as to the better team. Players could be forgiven for a lack of motivation in what potentially might be a meaningless series.
Despite these objections, Australia will certainly be up against it in this series. Between 1996 and today Australia have only won one series in India that of 2004/5. And the last time around India recorded a 2-0 series victory with Ishant Sharma claiming the man of the series. Add into the mix India’s fine middle order and the unfavourable conditions for the quicks and you have an indication as to how unenviable Australia’s preparations are. A gruelling task awaits.
India vs Australia 2010 Series

BCCI has changed the tour schedule against Australia, now the first and second test match will start one day earlier than the initial announced schedule.

The venue of three ODI’s has been announced by BCCI which will be Kochi, Goa and Vishakapatnam.
Despite it still being 96 days until the opening Ashes test at the Gabba on November 25th, the anticipation from both Australian and English supporters is beginning to grow intensely. But let’s not get carried away, there’s a lot of cricket to be played between now and Brisbane. India vs Australia Live Stream
