Can Australia whitewash India?

The fourth and final Test match between Australia and India is going to take place on 24th January at the Adelaide Oval. The host team has already ensured their series victory. They have won all three Tests and now hoping to clinch victory in the final Test for a 4-0 whitewash. However, India will try hard to get a consolation victory in Adelaide. It is said to be a toughest match of the series as both the teams will face each other for a victory.

India is going to face a tough challenge as they will have to play the match without their regular captain MS Dhoni, who was suspended after India's loss in Perth due to slow over rates. Hard hitter opener Virender Sehwag will lead the team in his place. The absence of Dhoni will create a big problem as the Indian selectors will have to select a player for wicket-keeping and batting at the middle order position.

The cause of concern for the touring team is their experienced middle order batsmen. This ongoing series has marked the question about the future of VVS Laxman. He seems to be very weak and vulnerable among the seniors in India's middle order.

Australia is in a buoyant form after beating India in three Tests. They are hoping to regain their lost pride by claiming the top position in the Test ranking. They will do everything to win the match.

Adelaide Oval is a lucky ground for India. So, Indian fans can expect to see their team winning the match. Let’s see if Australia can whitewash their opponent.
