AUS vs IND DREAM11 Prediction | Australia vs India 4th Test | Who Will Win

After a remarkable end to the year 2018, the visitors India will move into the New year with an astonishing opportunity to seal a Test series Down Under for the first time in their cricketing history.

It was a historic win for the visitors in the Boxing Day Test at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground which helped them take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series.

In the post-match presentation ceremony, Indian skipper Virat Kohli quoted, “It’s a job not done yet“, and he definitely goes by what he says. It’s not just the retention of the “Border-Gavaskar Trophy”, from hereon this Indian team wants to win the series 3-1 for which they will not leave any box unticked.

Indian bowlers have been the talking point throughout the Test series as they have proved that they are apparently outstanding at any surface around the world of cricket.

The Australians, on the other hand, have looked drastically impatient and underprepared. The wrath of this Indian side has completely blown them away and they have no answers to any question raised in front of them.

They have been sweating hard on the eve of the final Test to deliver and make the series 2-2. The only stars of their diminishing setup in the series thus far have been Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon who are playing indifferently and will be the dependables for the hosts in the final Test as well.

Can Australia pull-off a desperate comeback, or will the visitors etch their name in history books by winning their first ever Test series down under? We will get the answers when the two teams will collide for one last time at the Sydney Cricket Ground from January 03rd.
