India vs Australia 2nd Test: Match Prediction
Even though India defeated Australia in the 1st test by a remarkable score, the Australian team still has a chance to game up in the 2nd test. This time it’s important for Australia to bounce back as they have to recover from their humiliating loss in the 1st test. They will surely do their best unlike the last time but this is going to be hard as our favorite squad is in the opposition.
However, it will only be possible when the Australians will have an answer to Jadeja and Ashwin. The spin duo will once again be standing firm between their victory. Considering Delhi’s condition and pitch, Australians might find it difficult to win the game.
Let’s see if team India will be leading again or if the Australian team will be back on the track.
