The first test is starting from December 6 in Adelaide. Ian Chappell believes India would be “missing” something in the Test series against Australia and will end up on the losing side despite things looking good for them on paper. “I am going to pick Australia, but don’t ask me why I am picking them. I think the only reasonable reason I can give is that I was disappointed the way India played in England and I thought they should have won that series,” Chappell told ESPNCricinfo.
“Certainly, on talent, they should beat this Australian side, but there might just be something missing. The other thing is the Australian attack. It is a very good one. It is proven under Australian conditions and the Indian attack is not proven under Australian conditions. So it is pretty flimsy evidence but I am going to pick Australia,” he added.
