IND vs AUS Match Prediction - Mar 09, 2023

India was handed one of its most comprehensive defeats in history when it was rolled over in just 2.5 days in Indore. Australia has now qualified for the WTC Final and will be much more relaxed after winning its previous match. Squaring the series, if it can do that, will be a massive achievement. 

The expectation in Ahmedabad is for another spin-friendly surface. We do think that it may not be the raging cobra pit that we have seen in the previous venues. 

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs Australia 4th Test Border-Gavasakar Trophy 2023. The match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad from the 9th of March 2023. 


IND vs AUS Team Previews


India made a couple of changes to its lineup for the previous match when it rested KL Rahul and also Mohammad Shami for the previous match. Shubman Gill is certain to get a longer run and Umesh Yadav did quite well so Mohammad Shami could only come back for Mohammad Siraj, if it all. 

We don't think India is going to deviate from its template at all. It will play three spinners and two pacers while sticking with Srikar Bharat for this game as well. There is no reason to either. India has lost just three matches at home in the last decade. 

The concern is going to be with the manner in which the Indian batters have played spin. Pujara, Rohit, and maybe Shreyas Iyer at times have looked like getting a big score but they have yet to do so. Kohli is another batter that seems to be making too many mistakes at the moment. We would not bet on any of the Indian batters in their current form. 

Ravindra Jadeja has been the standout bowler for India and could very well be the highest wicket-taker once more. We also think Axar Patel could get more of a role in this match and so he could be one to watch out for. 


India Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami.


Australia has looked like a much more impressive team ever since it added Matt Khunemann to the lineup. He has adapted very well to the conditions and is bowling the perfect length. His presence has also allowed Nathan Lyon to come into his own and he is now being considered the greatest-ever overseas spinner to play in India. 

Todd Murphy has not been as effective in the previous two matches but he is still one of the best young spinners that we have seen in a long time. His battle with Kohli will be an interesting one to watch out for. 

Australia's batting has been quite decent in all the matches it has played so far. Usman Khawaja and now Travis Head have been excellent while Smith and Labuschagne seem to be close to getting a big score. A weak middle order and an underperforming fast bowling unit are the two big concerns that Australia will have to address. 

We would stick with Nathan Lyon as the best bowler and maybe Usman Khawaja as the best batter for the visitors. 


Australia Playing 11

Travis Head, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Peter Handscomb, Cameron Green, Alex Carey, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy, Matthew Kuhnemann.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Ahmedabad are expected to be a bit better for batting but still spin-friendly. There is also some bounce in the surface that can make the spinners even more dangerous. The pitch is definitely going to spin but it may play a bit better for the first couple of days. 


IND vs AUS Betting Tips

Australia has competed very strongly against India in all the matches but to be able to consistently withstand the pressure that India puts while playing at home is not going to be easy. We think India is still the team to back and you should take advantage of the improved odds currently on offer. 

Bet on India to win.

    Shubman Gill Total Runs

    Over 28.5 (1.85)


Gill has been in spectacular form this year but has struggled a bit for runs while playing in Test cricket. We think he is far too good to miss out for long and are backing him to come good this time.
