Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)  on Wednesday announced the team India’s playing XI for the first Border-Gavaskar Test against Australia starting tomorrow in Adelaide. The series opener is going to be a day-night Test played with pink balls.

Virat Kohli will lead the team for this game before he goes back home to be with his pregnant wife Anushka Sharma. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane will then take over the reigns for the last 3 matches of the 4-Test series.

Prithvi Shaw has been selected ahead of in-form Shubman Gill as the second opener along with Mayank Agarwal while Wriddhiman Saha has pipped Rishabh Pant to grab the wicketkeeper’s slot.

Shaw’s selection will raise a few eyebrows as he had flopped in 3 of the 4 innings he played in the two warm-up matches, registering scores of 0, 19, 40 and 3.

Gill on the other hand, looked fluent in both innings of the second practice game which was played under lights with pink balls at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin has been picked as the lone spinner ahead of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav while Hanuma Vihari has retained his place in the middle-order thanks to his performance in the second tour match in which he hit a hundred.
