New Delhi The four-match Test series between India and Australia will start on December 1. This game will be day and night and for the first time any Test game between the two countries will be played day and night. Both teams are ready for this team, but before that former Australia captain Ricky Potting has selected his favorite game XI which could prove to be the best team for the first Test match against India.
Ricky Pontia was a very successful captain and he was known for tough decisions. He has Joe Burns as the opener in the team he has selected for the first Test. However, Joe’s performance was not good for Australia A. He has suggested Matthew Wade as the second opener who will not play in the first Test.
Ponty has named Marnus Labushane and Steve Smith as middle-order batsmen. Ponti said of Joe Burns, “I have a lot of messages and suggestions that Joe didn’t score much and he shouldn’t have a place on the team.” He scored 400 runs in the last Test innings. He has scored four Test centuries and his average is around 400, but I believe in him.
At the same time, he said of Matthew Wade, if he comes as the opener, then this team gets a left-right combination. When Team India came to the final tour, there were two left handers in the top order and this is why the Indian bowlers dominated. I think it’s a little weird, but I want to go with it.
Ponty’s favorite XI for the first Test against India
Matthew Wade, Joe Burns, Marnus Labushane, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Tim Payne, Pat Cummins, Michelle Stark, Jose Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon.
