Australia vs India - 4th Test Match Preview & Prediction

03 January 2019

The rule of thumb from Kohli's era as captain suggests the answer would be no: in 13 Tests outside Asia (excluding West Indies) under Kohli, India have gone in with two spinners only once - at Lord's in 2018. There are also reports that Ravichandran Ashwin, who has been included in the squad, might be rested for the final Test match as his struggles with injuries continue to haunt him. But with the Kookaburra losing its shine, batting got much easier on a track that's very dry underneath, tempting India to play two-front line spinners and paving the way for Marnus Labuschagne, the leg-spinning all-rounder, into the Australia XI. India may consider resting Ishant Sharma as he did not seem to have the sting at Melbourne.

Answers to these and more as Cricket Analyst, Mr Ashutosh Paibhale discusses the Sydney Test in detail.

On the cusp of history, the visitors started well in trying to win their first ever series in Australia. "It's something he will focus on to correct", Kohli said in the press conference on Wednesday.

"Well, it's unfortunate that Ashwin has had two niggles quite similar in the last couple of away tours (England and now Australia)".

Umesh Yadav is the third seamer named in the bowling lineup, after he was a surprise inclusion in the XI for the second Test in Perth.

The hosts have one eye on levelling the series in Sydney and the other on the main prize in 2019 - retaining the Ashes - and their selections for the Sydney test, beginning on Thursday, will reflect this. "He is very important for sure. Honestly, you can't predict an injury, when it happens you just manage and doing what he can to get over that injury".

His plan would give $5 billion for the border wall in exchange for renewable work permits for Dreamers. He said the President was now pushing for a steel slat structure, rather than a concrete wall.

"The Ashwin factor, it does make you alter your plans a little bit". But Vihari was bowling handsome whenever he got the ball. During India's training session Ashwin underwent fitness drills with Shanker Basu, the trainer, and at one point went indoors with him while the rest continued to practice.

"What is going to come is not something you need to think about".

Labuschagne batted at No 6 in his debut series in the UAE but has cut his teeth in state ranks at first drop on the Gabba, the country's bounciest and most pace-friendly pitch. This meant that old friends Mayank Agarwal and Rahul would be back in harness together once more, this time at the global level.
