ESPN Star Cricket Live Streaming HD India vs Australia 1st Test

The wait is over and we are about to witness another quality cricket test series between two good competitors viz. India and Australia. Australia plays four test matches here in India and the first test match begins from 22nd February.

Following is the complete schedule of India vs Australia 2013 test series:
1st Test - Chennai - 22 to 26 Feb 2013
2nd Test - Hyderabad - 2 to 6 Mar 2013
3rd Test - Mohali - 14 to 18 Mar 2013
4th Test - Delhi - 22 to 26 Mar 2013

Indians showed up a good performance in the warm up games. Especially in the second warm up game between India A and Australia, India A compelled Australia to follow-on which is a good physiological advantage for team India before starting the test series.

The Indian squad for first two test matches includes Dhoni, Sachin, Kohli, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Dinda, Ojha, Ashwin, Harbhajan, Sehwag, Pujara, Dhawan, Jadeja, Rahane, Ishant Sharma and Murali Vijay. The surprise exclusion was of Gautam Gambhir although the fact is he was out of form from a long time. Let us see how much does his century in warm up game helps him to regain position in the team.

Meanwhile after some injury worries related to Clarke and Warner, it seems both of them will play the first test match. Watson might move down the order to number and Warner may open with Cowan. A lot depends on how well does Australia tackle Indian spin bowlers. 

MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is a well known historic test venue with a seating capacity of almost 50 thousand viewers. Above all if India plays a test match at home against a good team like Australia in presence of someone like Sachin, we can easily expect a lot of fans turning out at the stadium.
