Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction- Australia v India 4th Test

Virat Kohli's team set to decimate Australia in Sydney Test despite Ravichandran Ashwin's injury

"It's just team balance really", Paine told reporters in Sydney on Wednesday, with his side desperate to prevent Virat Kohli's men from becoming the first India team to win in a Test series in Australia.

Numerous remainder of the questions Paine faced revolved around how Australia, who travel to England for an Ashes series later this year, could get better.

India are also likely to go with two spinners given the conditions.

Paine said it was crucial that the batsmen play their part in Sydney, with none of them getting more than 50 in Melbourne with the exception of tailender Pat Cummins.

Ishant Sharma was ruled out due to an injury and wasn't named in the 13-member shortlist which was announced on the eve of the game.

The SCG will be bathed in pink in support of Glenn McGrath's Cancer Foundation as the two teams will step out for the last Test of the Border-Gavaskar trophy, which regardless of the result of this match will remain with India.

Ishant is experiencing some left rib cage discomfort and the team management did not want to risk him during the fourth Test match in Sydney. He's very important in Test cricket, he's a vital part of the team.

Middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma, who struck a dogged 63 in the first innings at Melbourne, is not available after flying back to Mumbai to be with his wife who recently gave birth. "He is very disappointed that he's not able to recover in time", Kohli elaborated.

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. But, hosts have the ability to bounce back and draw level in the series.

Lokesh Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (w), Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah. So to take that challenge on, we want to win here. Cheteshwar Pujara has been pivotal for India as he has been part of six fifty-plus stands for India out of 11 which makes him more risky at Sydney as he is also a good player of spin.

Steve Waugh's teenage son could feature for Australia in the fourth Test at the SCG.

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.

Batting all-rounder Labuschagne will come in at No.3, the position he occupies for Queensland, while Usman Khawaja has been promoted to open.

Now then. It's been all but confirmed that Marnus Labuschagne will bat at No3.
