The cricketer-turned-commentator Dinesh Karthik named the two biggest threats for Team India in the crucial four-match Test against Australia. The Rohit Sharma-led team will lock horns with the Pat Cummins-led team in the first Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2023 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur, on Thursday, February 9.

Australia, the No. 1 ranked Test team, has dominated the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) cycle and is in first place in the points table. They won the three-match series against Pakistan 1-0 and drew the two-match series in Sri Lanka 1-1. Meanwhile, India will play their final series, which they must win by a two-match margin to qualify for the WTC final for the second time.

Nathan Lyon will lead their spin bowling attack with inexperienced spinners Todd Murphy, Mitchell Swepson, and Ashton Agar, who have only played nine Tests between them and taken 19 wickets. Lyon took 460 wickets in 115 Tests, while in India he picked up 34 wickets in 7 matches at an average of 30.59 with the best figures of 8/50.

Vice-captain Steve Smith is the only batsman in the current Australian team to average more than 30 against the Rohit Sharma-led team in India. Smith played six Test matches in India, scoring 660 runs at an average of 60, including three centuries and a half-century. The right-handed batsman was the highest run-scorer on their previous tour with 499 runs at an average of 71.29.

The second test will be held in Delhi (February 17-21), the third in Dharamsala (March 1-5), and the fourth in Ahmedabad (March 9-13). Following the Test series, the Aussies will play three ODIs, with the first match starting in Mumbai on March 17. The remaining matches will be played in Visakhapatnam (March 19) and Chennai (March 22), respectively.
