India take on Australia in the Third Test match starting from Wednesday as the tour moves ahead. India come into this game as the favourites.
Date and Time : 1st-5th March 2023, 9:30 AM IST

Team India have been good in the first two Test matches played so far in the series and they will look to make a clean sweep. They will look to play their brand of cricket.
The batsman will look to get the runs as it is necessary in Test cricket. Bowlers will have to be clinical in getting the opposition out.
Coach and captain Rohit Sharma will have to stick to the game plans.
On the other hand, Australia will be disappointed the way they have performed so far and getting beaten. They will have to shift to normalities.
Their batters will need to up the game. Bowling wise they have the core and will have to utilise it.
Coach and captain Pat Cummins will have the responsibility at their hands.
For the wicket, it will be good for batting.
Team news and possible lineups
Cameron Green and Mitchell Stars are both available for Australia and will likely play.
India XI : R. Sharma (C), KL Rahul, C. Pujara, V. Kohli, S. Iyer, KS Bharat (WK), R. Jadeja, A. Patel, R. Ashwin, M. Shami, M. Siraj.
Australia XI : T. Head, U. Khawaja, M. Labuschagne, S. Smith, P. Handscomb, A. Carey (WK), C. Green, P. Cummins (C), Starc, N. Lyon, Kuhnemann.
I think it won’t be an easy game as both teams will give their all. But in the end I do think India have and edge after their current scenario. India I choose to win in the end making it 3-0.
