India were playing mind games with their own selection, having ruled out Ravi Ashwin then including him in a 13-man squad an hour later after Australia captain Tim Paine could not contain his glee at the master spinner's exclusion.

Numerous remainder of the questions Paine faced revolved around how Australia, who travel to England for an Ashes series later this year, could get better.

Rohit flew back to India to attend his wife and newly born daughter.

"It doesn't for me personally", he said on whether preventing an India series win was his key motivation. "It's something he will focus on to correct".

In a unusual u-turn, after he was ruled out at the time of Kohli's pre-match press conference, Ashwin was named in the 13-man shortlist for this fourth Test.

Ishant is out after experiencing discomfort in his left rib cage and the team management didn't want to risk him by playing him in the decider. "He is very important for sure".

The SCG Test will be decisive in both teams' captain's captaincy career but it will surely present the real Test match battle which every cricket fan expects at the start of a new year. Why is Ashwin in the squad if he is still unfit?

Umesh Yadav has been included in place of Ishant, along with Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. 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 (as to) what needs to be done to get back to full fitness. But, hosts have the ability to bounce back and draw level in the series.

Kohli has described Vihari as an "exciting" spinner and he will be the second spin option, if India retain their bowling combination from the MCG Test.

Indian middle-order's contribution is also one of the biggest factors which makes India favourites to win the series.

Fox Sports and Channel Seven will telecast the fourth Test of the series across Australia. 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 unsafe at Sydney as he is also a good player of spin.

Batting all-rounder Labuschagne will come in at No.3, the position he occupies for Queensland, while Usman Khawaja has been promoted to open.

Australia, on the other hand, have added spinner Marnus Labuschagne to the squad.

Marcus Harris, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Tim Paine (w/c), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood.
