    IND vs AUS Live Score: Pitch report

    “Pitch number five. Same wicket that was used for India vs Pakistan. It’s different from that one because it’s been left open for quite a long time. It looks very dry, not much rolling. Looks patchy especially in the areas where spinners will land the ball. I expect it to turn a bit. Dew is uncontrollable. If there’s no dew, you could be in trouble. Batting first, getting runs on the board is premium. But India won’t be too bothered either way.”
