India's refusal to play a day-night Test match in Adelaide has caused a dip in sales for the first Test match, South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) told news.com.au on Tuesday. However, he must get his other batters to perform if he is to grab the crowning glory of India's first Test series victory in Australia.
India suffered a huge blow ahead of the first Test with young opener Prithvi Shaw ruled out after suffering ankle ligament damage during their final warm-up game against a Cricket Australia XI.
India are the number one ranked Test team in the world right now and they will never have a better chance of winning a Test series in Australia having failed to do so in any of their previous 11 attempts.

"The [Adelaide] wicket over the last few years here has given enough throughout the game [to not need an allrounder]. If the first Test goes in India's favour and the Indian batsmen get amongst the runs, then I think it will be a series which India will win comfortably". "It is going to be no different for them; they are going to see at times if they can attack Lyon and get on top of him.so it is going to be a real chess match in that regard", he said.
