India vs Australia 2013 1st Match Live Cricket Streaming Online
With the India vs Australia four-match Test series starting from Friday, the MS Dhoni brigade is in the limelight yet again against one of the best opponents in the longer version of the game. The visitors led by Michael Clarke, may not fare well with the Indian counterparts but will surely try to produce an upset in the series.
The Test series defeat against England recently, had exposed team India’s batting and bowling woes in the longer version of the game. In what was boasted to be a revenge series, turned into a shambolic suffering for the Indian team at home.
The Indian top-order has been a prime area of concern for the team after being exposed in the recent series. The batsmen have failed on numerous occasions despite playing in batting-friendly conditions. Virender Sehwag, who had slammed triple century against Pakistan earlier, has been struggling to score runs for the hosts.
On the other hand, Australia will be happy to emulate England and considering that they have come with a no-so experienced side will make it even more praiseworthy.
India versus Australia series over the years have had some memorable matches and one would expect that it won`t be any different this time around.
The first Test match will start at 9:30 am(IST) at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.
