1.00pm: It’s here!

Hello everyone and welcome to our rolling coverage of the first Test between Australia and India for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. As with so many sporting events this year it has taken a huge amount to get this show on the road – the one-day and T20I matches were a nice starter, but this is the main course. Four Test matches in a month, it will test both sides in many ways, with Australia hoping to avenge the 2-1 loss in 2018-19. On that occasion they were without David Warner and Steven Smith throughout, this time they’ll be without Warner for at least one Test but India will be without Virat Kohli for three. He’s in Adelaide, however, and you feel India have to make the most of that. We are about an hour away from the toss, but we already know India’s XI – in a very positive, assertive move it was named yesterday – and we think we know Australia’s with Joe Burns set to keep his place and a debut for Cameron Green. Stay with us (and my colleagues on the live commentary) for all the build-up.
