India vs Australia 4th Test Preview Favourites India Look To Create History Despite Injury Woes

Follow live as Australia host India in the Sydney Cricket Ground test.

Ind vs Aus 4th Test Day 1 Live Cricket Score Online, India vs Australia Test Live Cricket Score Streaming: The usual noises that swirl around an Indian team going into the last Test match of its Australian tour tell stories of infighting, hidden injuries, loss of form of key players, questions around the captain's abilities etc. Fast bowler Ishant Sharma and offie R Ashwin are injured and Rohit Sharma is away after his wife gave birth to their daughter. "He is very important for sure".

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. He, more than anyone else, will be focused to correct this, "Kohli said on the eve of the final Test". There are also reports that Ravichandran Ashwin, who has been included in the squad, might be rested for the final Test match as his struggles with injuries continue to haunt him.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin accepts Pittsburgh’s fate after Ravens’ win over Browns
The Steelers did manage to narrowly avoid disaster and beat the lowly Bengals , but it was too little, too late. The NFL Injury Report for Week 17 has a lot of big names that could miss some pretty important games.

"He is very disappointed with the fact that he has not been able to recover in time, but the things have been laid out to him (over) what needs to be done to get back to full fitness". If anyone looked doubtful for selection during India's training session it was Shami, who arrived at the ground on a hot summer's Sydney day in a jacket and flip-flops and did not take part in any of the drills performed.

With Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agarwal, who made his Test debut in the Melbourne match, standing tall with the bat, a historic first awaits Team India in the New Year. "You can't really predict an injury when it happens, you can just manage it", he added. "I think it [Ashwin's absence] does make you alter your plans a little bit throughout the course of a series". 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. But Vihari was bowling lovely whenever he got the ball. That's one of the discussions we'll be having today, if we think India will go that way and if they are, are we prepared to bring him back in. Judging by Kohli's words in the press conference, part time spinner Hanuma Vihari in all probability will pair up alongside Jadeja in the final XI while chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav might just have to end the test series without even a single appearance.
