Australia vs India 3rd Test Preview: India counts on Rohit Sharma, Australia Get David Warner Boost
For India, while the return of Rohit Sharma - who has been named vice-captain of the team for the remaining two matches - is a huge boost, injuries picked up by Mohammed Shami in the first Test and Umesh Yadav in the second poses a problem.
The hosts have dropped under-performing opener Joe Burns, while David Warner has made it back into the squad. Coach Justin Langer said that Warner is "very, very, very likely" to play in Sydney, while youngster Will Pucovski has been given the all-clear from concussion and may step out with Warner in a new-look opening partnership for Australia.
