Ranchi is the venue for the third and crucial India vs Australia battle and it promises to be a humdinger. The series is level at 1-1 after India came back from behind to upstage the visitors. India, for sure will enter the Ranchi Test the more confident side between the two. Virat Kohli and his team will be upbeat raring for their seventh back-to-back Test series win, an enviable feat!

Ranchi has been a ground that has always been known to permit true bounce and allow the batsman to hit through the line. But the way the pitches have played in this series, no one will dare to stick their neck out and predict the wicket. Being an Indian wicket, the spinners will come into life from the third session of day 3 typically. It will have something for the seamers upfront as well.

It is Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s hometown but he has said he will not be coming to the ground. But we know that earlier Mahendra Singh Dhoni had paid a visit to the ground to have a word with the groundsman. The groundsman later said that it was one of MSD’s regular visits, nothing startling about it.
