Match Notes

  • India's tour match abandoned due to rain

    As warm-up matches go, the players didn't get very warm. India's only game before the Boxing Day Test was called off after only 48 overs because of persistent heavy rain in Melbourne

  • Dravid confident he can open in Tests

    Rahul Dravid has declared himself ready to open in the Boxing Day Test against Australia and he believes India's promising middle-order prospects can no longer be ignored

  • Ganguly fights in rainy Melbourne

    Torrential rain limited the first day of India's warm-up match against Victoria to one session, in which Sourav Ganguly survived some early wobbles to score a half-century and Rahul Dravid settled into the opening role

  • Rain ruins India's second warm-up day

    India are facing a potential washout in their only warm-up match before the first Test after only ten overs were bowled on the second day against Victoria
