Australia will begin to become Test cricket’s undisputed No 1 team in the same city where they last clinched the Border Gavaskar trophy in India.
Pat Cummins’ side will look to make history and end India’s 11-year unbeaten streak in Test series at home.
Australia are already No. 1 in the rankings but if they were to salute in India for the first time since 2004 it would elevate the team’s status to greatness.
The first test begins on Thursday at Nagpur’s VCA Stadium, some 25 minutes from the city’s former proving ground where a team led by Adam Gilchrist won 19 years ago to complete the series.

Australia dominated cricket from the mid-1990s to 2007, twice winning a record 16 consecutive Tests and winning three consecutive ODI World Cups.
The test has already sparked controversy after a journalist snapped photos of ground staff in Nagpur seemingly manipulating the pitch.
The photos show that the crew watered and bowled the middle of the wicket and the area outside the right-handed off-stump, but baked the other areas of the stretch in the sun.
Australia’s batting roster is heavily left-handed, with David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Travis Head, Alex Carey, Ashton Agar and Matt Renshaw all sure to be affected by the pitch preparation.

However, Indian cricket legend Ravi Shastri has slammed claims that the nation “cheated” in preparing the pitch in Nagpur.
‘That’s cops**t!’ he told SEN’s Sportsday.
“There is more hype than anything else about this first test match.
“It always happens that you get 15mm of grass, 18mm of grass or 12mm of grass in different places on the ground… At the end of this first test, I’m sure there’s someone who scores a hundred points.
