Head to Head (in AUS)
The most easiest job for Team India ahead of the 4th Test is team selection. Rahane has to just call out all those who are fit, and just take the field. Such is the situation in the Indian camp. Day by day, one or the other player is getting ruled out due to injury. As per latest reports Bumrah, Jadeja, Vihari and Mayank are all injured. So India will be forced to go with either of Prithvi or Saha in the middle order along with Shardul as the third seamer. It is also reported that Washington Sundar will make his debut ahead of in-squad member Kuldeep Yadav to cover up for the loss in batting depth that may haunt them otherwise at a batting friendly Gabba wicket.
For Australia, opener Will Pucovski is doubtful and Marcus Harris may replace him.
AUS Playing XI: David Warner, Marcus Harris, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Tim Paine (c & wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazelwood
IND Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane (c), Rishabh Pant, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Washington Sundar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad Siraj, Navdeep Saini
The Gabba is right now the only true wicket available in Australia. Gabba doesn't use a drop-in pitch and hence the pitch is expected to stay true to its age old characteristics. It traditionally offers enough bounce and carry to the pace bowlers and is also a good batting wicket for those batsmen who prefer bounce to pounce on.
Players who are expected to perform well as per AUS vs IND Dream11 Teams.
IND- Rohit Sharma
This choice may raise few eyebrows. But if any Indian batsman can use the bounce of Gabba to his advantage, then its the Hitman. Known for his trademark pull shorts, he is Indian batting's major home at Gabba.
AUS- Steve Smith
The modern day Don is finally back in form. He scored a 100 in the last match and looks like he has found back his lost rhythm. Moreover he averages more than 50 at Gabba, thereby making him a suitable candidate for Dream11 captaincy choice.
Other Prominent Options: Marnus Labuschagne, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, David Warner
IND- Ravichandran Ashwin
With India's main pace attack ruled out, the major burden falls on Ravichandran Ashwin. If he can trap Smith and Labuschagne early on like he did in the first two matches, then India do stand a chance.
AUS- Pat Cummins
He is the world's number one Test bowler. He loves playing in home conditions and would be licking his lips to bowl at Gabba. Expect a match winning spell from one of the modern day greats.
Other Prominent Options: Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj, Mitchell Starc, Nathon Lyon
