The second Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy will be played from today.
When: Friday, February 17 at 09:30 AM IST
Venue:Arun Jaitley Stadium, Ferozshah Kotla Ground
Jawaharlal Nehru Marg, Raj Ghat, Feroz Shah Kotla, Vikram Nagar, New Delhi, Delhi 110002
What to expect: The pitch at the Arun Jaitley Stadium,Delhi is expected to play on the drier side. Traditionally the track has a tendency to be slow as well, which could mean that the batters may have time to adjust for spin off the surface as well, thereby making it a little easier to bat on.
Team India performed well in the Nagpur Test and took a 1-0 lead in the series by winning the match by an innings and 132 runs. In the Delhi Test, Team India would like KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli, who did not score runs in the first Test, to score runs. Apart from Rohit Sharma, the lower order batsmen did well. On the other hand, the Kangaroo team is troubled by the injury of all-rounder Cameron Green and fast bowler Mitchell Starc apart from the poor performance of the batsmen.
India’s victory in Delhi will take away the chance of winning the series from Australia. There was a lot of discussion about the pitch during the last Test. In such a situation, it has to be seen how the mood of the pitch is in Delhi.
