India (IND) hosts Australia (AUS) in the first Test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur from February 8 to 12. Both teams are in contention to qualify for the World Test Championship final so this series will be paramount for everyone involved. Indian team beat Bangladesh by 2-0 in their last Test series but will miss star players Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant will be missing this series due to various reasons.

Australian team ranks first in the current ICC rankings and enter this after beating Sout Africa at home in their last Test series. The star pacers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood are missing the opening Test due to minor injuries while Cameron Green is also ruled out. But both teams are likely to include three spin options as the Nagpur pitch is supposed to favour spinners heavily.

Indian team is likely to hand a Test debut to Suryakumar Yadav while Ishan Kishan has to wait for his chance with KS Bharat donning wicketkeeping gloves. For Australia, Lance Morris and Todd Murphy are likely to make their international debut in the Nagpur Test.

Injury and availability news

Pitch Report

The pitch at Nagpur's Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground offers a batting-friendly surface in red-ball cricket. But according to the latest report, the venue curator has prepared a spin-friendly surface for this fixture so it will be wise to pick spin bowlers over pacers for the Dream11 Team.

Marnus Labuschagne AUS | BAT

The world's no.1 Test batter scored just one fifty from four innings against South Africa in the last Test series. But he has scored over 3000 runs at an average of almost 60 and will be a safe captaincy choice for the Dream11 Team.

Smith is closing on 9000 Test runs and is likely to achieve this feat in this series. He has scored 1742 Test runs at an average of 72.58 against India and has been in excellent form across formats lately.

Suryakumar Yadav

IND | BAT

The star Indian batter is likely to make his Test debut in this fixture with Shreyas Iyer missing the match. Suryakumar has struggled in the recent ODIs and should be avoided for the Dream11 Team selection.

Lance Morris

AUS | BOWL

The 24-year-old pacer will be making his long-awaited debut in this match with Hazlewood and Starc ruled out with injuries. Morris enters this series with good success in BBL 2023 but is unlikely to produce wickets at Nagpur's surface.
