SCG inspection to decide Australia side - Paine

SCG inspection to decide Australia side - Paine”

Ashwin, who bagged six wickets in the opening Test at the Adelaide Oval suffered a side strain and was ruled out of the second Test. He has flown back to India and will miss the Sydney Test. India outclassed Australia in all departments in the third Test in Melbourne and won the match by 137 runs after the hosts tied the series 1-1 in Perth.

With the Sydney track expected to assist the spinners, the absence of Ashwin from the squad can be a big impediment for India to go ahead and clinch the series. After Kohli said that the offie has been injured on similar lines in the past two tours, he was included in India's 13-member squad a day before the Sydney Test.

Bama vs OU; Clemson vs Notre Dame
Alabama beat the Tigers 45-40 in Arizona for the 2015 title after the two teams combined for a 40-point fourth quarter. This matchup has seemed inevitable since the Tide and Tigers started the season ranked 1-2.

Middle-order batsman Rohit Sharma, who hit a gritty 63 in the first innings at Melbourne, is not available after jetting back to Mumbai to be with his wife who recently gave birth. The physio and the trainer have spoken to him in terms of what's required in order to get over that injury. With Shami being named in the thirteen, most would assume that he would join Jasprit Bumrah and Jadeja in the bowling line-up, leaving a late call to be taken on whether Ashwin would be fit to play, and in the event that he was not, either Kuldeep or Umesh would make the cut, based on the pitch. "Honestly, you can't predict an injury, when it happens you just manage and doing what he can to get over that injury". "I think the way he's handled the last month or so has been exemplary, it's a real credit to him. We want to be able to take that legacy forward and play the kind of cricket we have played in this series, which has been exciting for people to watch as well as for both teams competing", Kohli added.

Since the Border-Gavaskar Trophy came into existence, India and Australia have played 14 Test series, out of which eight were played in the Asian country.

"It's just team balance really". We're not too far away.
