Australia v India – First Test, Adelaide: Calling all cricket scribes

The First Test between Australia and India starts on Thursday at the Adelaide Oval. The forecast is for 37 degrees with the hot weather continuing throughout the Test. Does that mean runs and more runs – even for the flaky Australian batting line-up? Or is it less flaky in Australia?


Intriguing Test.


We hope to publish a daily report.


Please let us know if you would like to write about one of the days either in the comments below or via email. [email protected]
