Australian Cricket Team would be aiming to start afresh after suffering a massive defeat in the 1st Test match. The visitors lost the Match by an innings & 131 runs where they looked quite clueless against the duo of Ravichandran Ashwin & Ravindra Jadeja. The two spinners took 15 wickets out of 20.
Australia needs to make sure that they are sticking to the crease as they have to toil the bowlers before playing their shots. The management would be hoping that David Warner breaks his shackles and plays his natural game. The batter had got into his groove in 2nd innings but was undone by the sheer brilliance of Ravichandran Ashwin.

Sunil Gavaskar on Australia
Sunil Gavaskar was having an interaction with India Today and was asked how can Australia make a comeback.
“I would predict a 4-0 scoreline. The way Australia lost, they need a great start in the second Test. Either Steve Smith or Marnus Labuschagne have to score enough runs. If that doesn’t happen, the Indian team will win the series by 4-0.” said Sunil Gavaskar.

Stern Test for Australia
The Aussies as said by Sunil Gavaskar need Smith Or Labuschagne to score big runs as the rest of the batting line up is quite fragile. The Aussies perhaps should should bring back Travis Head into the playing 11 as he has been on a roll since last year. The batter’s aggressive stroke-play could prove decisive.
Skipper Pat Cummins needs to play with 3 spinners as we witnessed how the debutant Todd Murphy was over-bowled. There are chances that Ashton Agar may get a game as the left arm off spinner has been performing well in domestic circuit and at the same time can also play a handy knock for the team. The Aussies should take a leaf out of England’s 2012 Test triumph where they also had lost the 1st Test match but then later won the series by 2-1.
