How to stream Australia vs India test cricket for free
You don't have to miss a single ball this Australian summer as you can stream Kayo Sports to your phone, tablet, TV or computer for free for a limited time.
Update Day 2 First Test: Well that was disappointing, wasn't it? After looking like being in a strong position going into the day, Australia capitulated to be 7/191 at stumps with only Travis Head offering any resistance to the Indian attack. Here's hoping the tail wags on Day 3.
Update Day 1 First Test: Day 1 of the First Test between Australia and India is over, with the tourists struggling with the bat to end the day at 9/250. Hats off to Pujara for his 123 and it could have been more if it wasn't for a stunning run out by Aussie paceman Pat Cummins. The bowlers shared the spoils, and will be looking to spend most of the day cooling their heels in the sheds as the Aussie batsman post a leading total on a hot 38-degree day at the Adelaide Oval.
What an interesting Australian test cricket summer we have coming up. Four tests against India, perhaps our fiercest rival in the modern era. Led by the passionate and polarising Virat Kohli, the Indians have surged up the rankings to be the number one test cricketing nation in the world.
Meanwhile, Australia has plummeted to number five, thanks in part to continued struggles when playing in Asia.
The Australia vs India test series begins Thursday 6 December at the Adelaide Oval and Australia has picked a compelling side. With Steve Smith, Cameron Bancroft and David Warner suspended, Marcus Harris will make his test debut opening the batting. Peter Handscomb replaces Mitchell March in the middle order and Travis Head retains his spot.
Is this the line-up that can finally rattle the Indian team? You can find out for free for a limited time.
