Australia vs India 1st Test | Top Player Bets to Watch Out For

Australia will go head on with India in the first pink-ball Test of the four-match series at the iconic Adelaide Oval, starting from December 17, Thursday.

It is quite emotional and historical at the same time, isn't it? India will play their first ever Day-Night Test match away from home and that too against a side, who have played quite a number of pink-ball Tests at this particular venue and will be on top of their game against one of their favourite opponents. It's Australia vs India guys - the adrenaline is just getting that push as this is considered to be one of Virat Kohli's happy-hunting grounds and this is also the only Test match he is going to play in this tour. Australia have not yet found their perfect opening combination and they will be eager to get that sorted before the match gets started. On the other hand, India are spoilt for choices as they have a number of options up top. Irrespective of the player selections, the crowds will be in the stands, the lights are going to shine bright, the ball and the bats are going to do the talking - boy, it is going to be one heck of a day-night Test match. Now that we are aware of the setting I have assorted three of the perfect player markets for you to bet on and let me take you through them one by one.

Virat Kohli to score over 37.5 runs

How can we not talk about the man, who simply loves to take up a new challenge in every series in Down Under. Virat Kohli ladies and gentlemen loves the Adelaide Oval and irrespective of the colour of the ball that too. The skipper of the Indian cricket team has played 86 Test matches so far and have managed to rack up 7240 runs at an average of 53.62. Kohli loves batting in Australia, be it any format of the game, but since we are discussing Test cricket here, let me tell you that he has scored 1274 runs in 12 matches at a wonderful average of 55.39. As the captain of the Indian team, Kohli manages to maintain an incredible average of 61.21. The flamboyant striker of the cricket ball that he is, Kohli has played three matches at the Adelaide Oval and has managed to rack up 248 runs at an average of just above 48.0. has offered odds of 1.86 for Virat Kohli to score 37.5 runs and it should be a piece of cake for the man who loves scoring at free will against Australia.

Marnus Labuschagne to score over 33.5 runs

Yet another young bloke from Australia has been sublimely impressive with his hallowed piece of willow, particularly in the longest format of the game and yes, you got that right, I am talking about Marnus Labuschagne! In just 14 Test matches, Labuschagne has managed to pile up 1459 runs at an astounding average of 63.43. He has so far played 8 Tests on his home soil and has scored 1025 runs at a jaw-dropping average of 85.41 including all the four centuries of his Test career. He racked up 1194 runs in the previous year at an average of almost 65.0 and ICC recognised him to be one of the budding talents Australia has produced so far. This year he has played just one game and he has managed to score 274 runs in that match. The last time he played at the Adelaide Oval, Labuschagne constructed a brilliant knock of 162 runs. LeoVegas is offering odds of 1.86 for Marnus Labuschagne to score over 33.5 runs and yet again it could be a very easy win for us.

Steve Smith to score over 41.5 runs

Last but not the least, Steven Peter Devereux Smith, popularly known as our very own shining star in the world of cricket - Steve Smith! It's always that Kohli vs Smith scenario that draws the attention of the fans across the globe, and boy they have lived up to it in Down Under every single time. Smith's career numbers are quite similar to Kohli as the former has racked up 7227 runs at an average of 62.84. Smith averages 84.05 against India - yeah, well, you read that right because India is Smith's favourite opponent! While playing on the home soil, the former Australia skipper has managed to score 3344 runs at an average of 71.14. The year 2019 was incredible for Smith as he managed to score a lot of runs and coming to think of it, I just remembered that he scored 965 at an outstanding average of 74.23. Under the leadership of Tim Paine, Smith has been in the best of forms with his bat as he averages 73.42. LeoVegas has offered the best odds of Steve Smith (1.86) and the kind of form he is in, it could well be a brilliant morning for all of us.

My Picks:

Virat Kohli to score over 37.5 runs - @ 1.85 (

Marnus Labuschagne to score over 33.5 runs - @ 1.86 (LeoVegas)

Steve Smith to score over 41.5 runs - @ 1.86 (LeoVegas)
