Shubhman Gill and Mohammed Siraj will debut for India in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG. Coming back into the side were allrounder Ravindra Jadeja and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. Gill replaced Prithvi Shaw at the top of the order while Siraj came in for the injured Mohammed Shami. In a bold move, India handed over the spot vacated by Virat Kohli to bowling allrounder Ravindra Jadeja. Pant’s first international match since the New Zealand tour meant Wriddhiman Saha’s return to Tests outside Asia was short-lived.

India: 1 Mayank Agarwal, 2 Shubhman Gill, 3 Cheteshwar Pujara, 4 Hanuma Vihari, 5 Ajinkya Rahane (capt.), 6 Rishabh Pant (wk), 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 R Ashwin, 9 Umesh Yadav, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Mohammed Siraj
