Warne names his Australia XI for D/N Test

Former Australian great leg-spinner Shane Warne picked his Australia’s playing XI for the day and night Test against India at Adelaide Oval.

The limited-overs leg between India and Australia came to an end with Australia winning the ODI series and India winning the T20I series, 2-1 each. With this, India’s tour of Australia has come to the most important and expected stage, the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

The Test series will start from December 17th, with the day and night Test at Adelaide Oval. There have been high anticipations on the Test series as well as on the Adelaide Test. The Adelaide  Test will mark the first-ever day and night Test between both teams as well as India’s first day and night Test, outside India. Also after that Test, the Indian skipper will leave for India, to attend the birth of his first baby.

Ahead of the Test series, former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne picked Australia’s playing XI for the first Test of the series. The hosts are stuck with a big blow ahead of the first Test as their prominent opener David Warner has been ruled out of the Test due to the groin injury, he suffered during the ODI series. In the absence of David Warner, Will Pucovski and Joe Burns have to open the innings.

But Will Pucovski is also having some injury scare after copping up a blow on his head off Karthik Tyagi’s bouncer in the tour game between Australia A and India A. Considering this, the former great named Marcus Harris as an alternate option to open the innings with Joe Burns. Further, the former cricketer wants Cameron Green to get his Australia cap in the first Test. Cameron Green scored a century in the tour game against India A.

Shane Warne’s Australia XI:
Tim Paine (c,wk), Joe Burns, Pat Cummins (vc), Matthew Wade/Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Will Pucovski/Marcus Harris, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc
