With two of the World’s best teams going up againt each other, the chances for weaknesses in the eleven are negligible. But even then, the injuries and fitness issues to some of the key players have forced teams to make changes to their best eleven. India have already announced their eleven one day prior to the match. In a surprise move both young talents Gill and Pant misses out. Saha and Shaw will play ahead of them despite poor performace in the warm-up games.
Australia are yet to name their eleven. But as per reports, Wade and Burns will open the batting and Cameroon Green might make his debut.
