After weeks of build-up and intrigue, the much-awaited Border-Gavaskar Trophy will start in earnest in Nagpur. There has been a lot of attention devoted to the state of the pitches and the XIs both sides will send out. Australia’s playing XI could feature five left-handed batters in their top seven while India might find a place in the XI for Suryakumar Yadav. Unfortunately, the visitors are likely to miss all-rounder Cameron Green, who is still recovering from a finger injury, as well as pacers Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc. This could mean Todd Murphy could be handed a debut, to start alongside off-spinner Nathan Lyon. Our senior cricket writer Sandip G is covering the game from Nagpur stadium.
