Australia vs India 2018/19: India Announce 13-man Squad For Sydney Test

India's captain Virat Kohli (C) holds a match stump after winning the third test match between Australia and India at the MCG in Melbourne, Australia, December 30, 2018.

Border and Gavaskar were the first two to touch the 10000-run mark in Test cricket.

Langer said Finch was "great in the team" after Australia's Boxing Day defeat, suggesting the Victorian will escape the axe for the final Test despite averaging 16.16 throughout the series.

Virat Kohli's side leads the four-match Test series 2-1. 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. Indian cricket administrators thought the Ranji Trophy was unwieldy and toyed with the idea of making the top rung restricted to six to eight teams.

Kohli, whose single century in the series alone betters the entire Australia effort, took questions about where a series triumph would rank in his own glory-filled career as well as in the annals of his country's cricketing history.

"We've got a lot of guys learning on the run at the same time", said Langer, acknowledging the team's lack of experience.

"Every team that comes here wants to win, obviously". "Whether it's the system ... whether it's something we've got to change in our psyche, I'm not sure". You are not going to deliver the best.

Australia also decided against naming a team on Wednesday as they searched for the ideal "balance" to their side for a fourth and final test they must win on a wicket they believe will offer some turn.


The pair was joined by the majority of Australian top order batsmen, with the quicks - including Mitchell Marsh - taking the morning off alongside Shaun Marsh and Travis Head.

However, former Aussie opener Simon Katich said Labuschagne, who took seven scalps in the UAE against Pakistan previous year, could play a pivotal role late in the game alongside in-form spinner Nathan Lyon.

"We're a work in progress", he conceded.

Asked if the trio should be welcomed back with open arms, Paine replied: "I think so".

"The players make the game, and they are the ones who dictate the result at the same time".

Smith and Warner's year-long suspensions will expire in late March 2019, and Paine admitted Australia missed their presence following a poor batting performance.

Australia's in-form fast man Pat Cummins admits the home side's pace trio has spent time in discussion over why they have not been able to match India's old-ball success so far in a series due to resume at the SCG on Thursday, but denied that reverse swing played a disproportionate part in last summer's Ashes bout.
