India has two changes in the fourth test against Australia in The Border-Gavaskar Trophy. When India is inches apart from history, winning for the first time in Australia. The declared squad has Lokesh Rahul as replacement of Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma left the position to Umesh Yadav.
Though, it’s a possibility of a spinning track in Sydney. But seamer Umesh Yadav came to the thirteen. So, team India has to decorate their spin attack with Rabindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. But Ashwin is not sure for playing eleven for fitness issue. If he’s not in the squad then Umesh Yadav will be the replacement.
The thirteen men team for India for Sydney test:
Virat Kohli (C), A Rahane (VC), KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, C Pujara, H Vihari, R Pant, R Jadeja, K Yadav, R Ashwin, M Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav
The fourteen men team for Australia for Sydney test:
Tim Pain (C & WK), Josh Hazlewood, Michel Marsh, Pat Cummins, Arron Finch, Peter Handscomb, Marks Harries, Travis Head, Usman Khwaza, Nathan Layon, Shawn Marsh, Peter Sidle, Michel Stark, Marnas Labushen.
The pitch curator of SCG Justin Groves ensured that the pitch will very competitive. In the beginning, it will be batting friendly. But after aging spinners will get comfortable zone. So toss is very important in Sydney.
Another thing is team India is leading the series in 2-1. So, Australia has no chance to win this. They have to win this match to rescue the series.
Finally, we hope Australia will not be easy to lose their series. So they must come back to the game properly.
