Team selector: Pick your India Test XI to face Australia

Team selector: Pick your India Test XI to face Australia in 2020/21. Choose your team and share it with your friends.

On their last tour in 2018/19, Virat Kohli led India to their first Test series win in Australia after 11 failed attempts. Now, with the skipper to return home after the first Test due to paternity leave, will the visitors be able to repeat their success?

That stated, India’s squad remains formidable, with a fine mix of youth and experience in all departments. That leaves the skipper with some tough decisions to make during a selection of the best XI, and with quality options to call upon when he departs the tour.

Try another team selector.

Who should be the first-choice openers? Who among Wriddhiman Saha and Rishabh Pant will take the gloves? Who will accompany Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami as the third seamer? Can Kuldeep Yadav challenge the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja for the spinner’s slot?

The possible combinations are many, and here’s your chance to make a selection to round off a well-balanced side.
