Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction- Australia v India 4th Test

The Delhi- born cricketer played some glittering knocks which mostly helped India emerge on top. They also think the absence of their disgraced captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner made a big difference.

"Disappointed with the way we batted in the first innings, but I'm happy with the way we played in the second innings as we fought hard as a team", Sri Lanka captain Dinseh Chandimal said.

"We've got a lot of guys learning on the run at the same time", said Langer, acknowledging the team's lack of experience.

"Seven members of the 14-man squad - Tim Paine, Nathan Lyon, Usman Khawaja, Aaron Finch, Marcus Harris, Peter Handscomb and Marnus Labuschagne - trained under brilliant Sydney sunshine in the morning as the nation steadily rose after seeing in 2019", Cricket Australia's official website posted. They followed that up with a dramatic win against Australia in a controversial Test series that included the infamous Sandpapergate in Newlands.

"We never thought we want to keep them in the field for longer".

"To be honest that's about the same amount of overs that you'd budget for most Test matches".

India captain Virat Kohli and South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada have maintained their top positions in the ICC Test Player Rankings at the year-end after 2018 saw them achieve several milestones including from the rankings perspective.

The 25-year-old paceman produced career-best performances with ball and bat in last week's third Test against India, claiming match figures of 9/99 and compiling a technically sound 63 in the second innings.


"That's a real area I feel I need to get better at, just adapting between the formats".

"We certainly hope it's not (flat)".

Sunil Gavaskar will likely miss out on presenting India with the perpetual Test series trophy named in his and Allan Border's honour, with the Indian legend back at home and not in Sydney.

"The art of batting, we've got some work to do", Langer said.

India leads the series 2-1 and would look to either hammer in the final nail in the Aussie coffin or maintain the margin.

"There's a really good process in place that we're going to go through to get the boys back in the team, I liked seeing Cameron play last night".

"Everyone's desperate and can't wait to try to rectify what's happened so far".
