    SKY at the toss

    "We would have loved to bowl first. I told the team to not change anything, another opportunity to plan in front of an amazing crowd, so just go and enjoy. The way batting unit has delivered, just told them to believe and execute. Arshdeep comes in for Deepak Chahar. He has flown back home because of a medical emergency."

    Wade at the toss

    "We will have a bowl. The wicket feels a bit tacky. One chage for us. Ellis comes in for Green. Exciting times for selectors and youngsters, to make a mark and put pressure on some of the spots."

    Pitch Report

    "Traditionally a very high-scoring venue. One of the reasons is the lush green outfield. It is electric quick and it isn't the longest. Square boundaries - 66 metres and 65 metres, downtown is 76 metres. It's a very good track. On a fuller length, it's quite dry and it has got this kind of mosaic pattern to it, might turn a little bit. Through the middle - a little bit more grass, but the grass is in patches. Maybe a little inconsistent with both pace and bounce. Don't think there'll be dew factor involved with the overcast nature right now. India will probably want to bat first, put the middle order of Australia under pressure with a big scoreboard pressure because of the nature of the surface."

    Changes in the Playing XI

    One change each for both sides. Arshdeep Singh comes in for Deepak Chahar for the Indian side. Nathan Ellis replaces Chris Green for Australia.
