Fourth Test Preview - India v Australia - Cricket World TV
Chetan Narula previews the fourth Test between Australia and India exclusively for Cricket World from the picturesque venue in Dharamsala.
Following the last day heroics from Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh, Australia will have the momentum on their side as a draw in the final Test will ensure they retain the Border-Gavaskar series.
India will be further hampered by the fitness cloud surrounding Virat Kohli and Chetan added that the Indian skipper did not train with intensity in the last two days leading to the game, giving an indication that he might miss the crucial encounter.
The combination of the Indian team will be tough to ascertain according to Chetan as Shreyas Iyer is in line to make his debut if they retain the combination of six batsmen and four bowlers while uncapped left-arm-spinner Kuldeep Yadav could be a surprise inclusion too.
On the other hand, Australia seemed to have settled nicely and could very well retain the same combination but if the pitch as expected is to aid the quick bowlers then Jackson Bird's inclusion is a possibility as well.
