The winning hopes that the Indian team raised with their excellent bowling on the Australian soil were destroyed by the batsmen. On Saturday, on the third day of the first Test match played at the Adelaide Oval ground, hosts Australia defeated India by eight wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series. This day-night Test match played with pink ball was a forgettable one for India. Now the question is arising that will Team India recover from this defeat before Boxing Day Test?
Big question in front of Team India
This defeat will also prove to be a big boost for the Indian team as there will be no regular captain Virat Kohli in the second Test i.e. Boxing Day Test. He will return to India under Paternity Leave. In such a situation, when this situation of the batting of Team India is happening with Virat, how will the Indian batsmen face the biggest question if they are not facing the Kangaroo bowlers.
On the other hand, the form of players including opener Prithvi Sau remains a matter of concern, while Shami did not go bowling in the second innings in bowling. He was hurt during batting. Will have to see how serious his injury is. If Virat is not there, Rahane will not only be under pressure to choose the right team, but fitness will also be a big problem.

So Australia has a big chance of winning
If seen, this is the biggest opportunity for the Kangaroo team to defeat India. Will not be great. Ajinkya Rahane will captain, who himself is struggling with poor form. After the Indian Premier League, he continues to perform poorly here in Australia. He could not do anything amazing in front of Pink Ball in the Adelaide Test. In the first innings, he scored 42 runs in the first innings, then could not open the account in the second innings.
India bowed like knee in the match
