Top picks for Aus vs Ind 4th Test

Australia’s top-order batsman Will Pucovski made his Test debut in the third Test against India and scored 62 runs in his maiden Test innings. The young lad will definitely be looking to give his side a good start in the final Test of the series.

Steve Smith played a spell-bounding knock in the third Test of the series, scoring 131 runs at a strike rate of 57.96. Smith’s high-hitting ability makes him a top pick for the upcoming game.

Shubham Gill has given stellar performances in the last two Tests and will be keen on posting huge totals for his side in the next match.

Jasprit Bumrah has effectively managed the pace attack for India. He scalped 9 wickets in the previous three Tests and will be looking to take major scalps in the final Test.

Man of the Match prediction

Steve Smith could be adjudged player of the match in the next game.

Winner prediction:

The Indian batting lineup showed incredible grit on the final day of the third test as India hung on a memorable draw against Australia. However, Ravindra Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari had a bad day as they suffered a thumb fracture and a hamstring injury respectively. Therefore, the duo will not be a part of the last Test. Seeing Team India’s injury woes and taking into account Australia’s formidable record at Gabba, the Aussies will only get the upper-hand in the fourth and final Test of the series.
