Match Preview

India and Australia are going to face each other in the second Test at New Delhi.

Furthermore, the match is just two days away and both teams are looking to gain the upper hand.

Moreover, India thrashed Australia at Nagpur in just three days and will look to repeat the same feat at Delhi as well.

On the other hand, Australia will have to get their act together if they want to win this Test. They weren’t at their best on the first Test.

Furthermore, the return of Ravindra Jadeja to the Indian squad has worked wonders for them.

India’s lower-order batters did an excellent job in the first Test as they contributed the major chunk of runs.

Thus, it will be a great Test once again between these two sides on the 17th of February.
