Virat Kohli and Co. on the other hand will look to repeat the 2018-19 drama. It will be a super important game for India as the skipper will be a part of the first test. Kohli will try to set the tone for the rest of the games.

Pitch Report from Adelaide Oval for the first test game:
Playing with the pink ball in Oval has been bowlers’ paradise. There is enough movement for the seamers early on however, it will become much easier to bat later on. At night time a bit of movement will do for the seamers again.
It would be a close contest with the bowlers of the two sides. The temperature will hover around the 20s and chances of slight rain are expected.
