    4th Test Australia v India - 15 to 19 January 2021 - GABBA

    Fourth test starts Friday so not much of a rest, Australia hasn't lost at the gabba since 1988.

    Will Pucovski may miss due to a shoulder injury

    Harris to play if Pucovski isn't right.

    I would have brought in Pattinson for Starc if he hadn't injured himself mowing the grass. Perhaps Neser a chance to debut on his home deck?

    Beautiful pivot from Paine to place all the heat on his sledging to distract everyone from his abysmal keeping. I'd drop him and Wade but instead I look forward to four more grassed chances and Wade taking it to the bowling at the top of the order in Puc's place for a well made 14 (13). This team is exhausting to support.

    Bumrah reportedly has been ruled out with an abdominal strain. If we can't win this match might as well shut her down.

    Harris should have been preferred at the start of the series given Burns couldn't buy a run but our fascination with left and right handed batsman at the top of the order worked in Burns favour

    Neser for Starc makes a bit of sense but once again we do love a left arm bowler

    Confirmed Pucovski ruled out and Harris in.

    If Marcus makes a score it will be a tough decision for selectors come the South African tour (if it goes ahead).

    If we don't win this...
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    Bumra and Ashwin a big loss.

    I enjoy watching them bowl.

    Another Test, another Aussie opener fails.

    We may as well throw Marnus up there, he's coming in within the first 10 overs anyway.

    Why pick a bloke who makes runs in Australia for fun? Our opening options are threadbare, Warner is an automatic inclusion if fit. The only query is whether he really is fit enough or not, although I doubt his groin could be blamed for that dismissal.

    I get what you are saying but no way should we move a number 3 averaging 60. So hard to find a good number 3.

    Both Openers gone cheaply
