India have dominated Australia ever since the start of Border-Gavaskar Trophy

Adjust Comment Print

India have already named 13-man squad for the Sydney Test which surprisingly features out of form opener KL Rahul as well. Bumrah, the red-hot pacer at the moment with nine wickets under his belt in the third Test at Melbourne, has shown that the current crop of Australian batsmen lacks the technique to face the moving ball.

If Australia are to win the final Test then either Hazlewood or Starc needs to come forward and support Pat Cummins so that Australia can put pressure on India from both the ends.

There's no doubt ahead of the series finale about Virat Kohli's squad taking the Border-Gavaskar Trophy back to India.

"If we think India were to play two spinners Pete could be a really important player for us", Paine said. That's obviously him, more than anyone else, who will be focused to correct. Ishant Sharma, who was excellent in the previous Test, was excluded though there was no clarity on why that was.

Meghan Markle wore something she once thought she could never pull off
Back in May 2017, Markle said that she doesn't wear Victoria Beckham's clothing because she doesn't like the way it looks on her. On Christmas Day, Meghan Markle stepped out for church service at the Queen's Sandringham estate in Norfolk with Prince Harry .

Wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav was also on the squad list and could play alongside finger-spinner Ravindra Jadeja if Ashwin is not fit and India opt for two slow bowlers.

Ishant is out after experiencing discomfort in his left rib cage and the team management didn't want to risk him by playing him in the decider. In Test cricket, he's a vital part of this team and we wanted him to be 100 percent fit for a longer period to that he can come back to us in the Test format.

Umesh Yadav has been included in place of Ishant, along with Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. Lokesh Rahul returns for Rohit Sharma, who is absent after the birth of his first child.

Australia can at best hope to level the series but with a batting line-up that has failed to stand up to a disciplined and penetrative Indian attack, the odds are stacked against the hosts. Kohli made comments about the possible absence of frontline spinner Ashwin, who missed the second and third tests after straining his abdomen while playing a key role in his team's victory in the first test in Adelaide last month.

"Every team that comes here wants to win, obviously".

Fox Sports and Channel Seven will telecast the fourth Test of the series across Australia.

"We know how good a cricketer he is, he's really skilled in all facets of the game", Paine said.

Finch, the nation's limited-overs skipper, and test vice-captain Mitchell Marsh are expected to make way with Peter Handscomb on the verge of a recall after only one match in the wilderness. If Finch is left out, Usman Khawaja will open with Marcus Harris, and Labuschagne slotting in the middle-order.
