India are currently touring Australia for a full series (3 T20Is, 4 Tests and 3 ODIs). Having drawn the three-match T20I series 1-1, the visitors will now shift their focus on the four-match Test series.
Earlier today, the opening day of India’s only practice game was disrupted due to rain. With a downpour hitting Sydney, even the toss did not take place. But several members of an upbeat Team India wasted no time and opted to go for a gym session instead.

When India last toured Australia, under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, they had to suffer a 0-2 defeat in the four-match Test series. But a lot has happened since then. The India team is currently on the top of the ICC rankings and has become a daunting side to play against.
As Australia set to miss prominent Test batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner in their tough home series, Adam Gilchrist had said that India will start favourites.
However, the 47-year-old added that Australia will try to get the best of home advantage.
Squad for the Test series:
India: Virat Kohli (capt), Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Parthiv Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
