Two Test matches in and Australia are in deep trouble. Pat Cummins left to be with his mother, who is unwell, leaving Australia with Steve Smith as their captain. Steve Smith has led in India, and with success and with all the losses in the line-up Smith could come up with some inspirational performances. Barring Cummins, Australia lose Warner to injury while Ashton Agar went back to play domestic Cricket.
The Indian line-up though remains the same as they may well go unchanged for the upcoming Test with a settled unit around them. Ashwin and Jadeja, the spin twins are proving why winning in India is really tough as the pair make merry against the Australian batters.

IND vs AUS Key Players
Steve Smith has a huge role to play in the upcoming Test. He is easily the best player of spin in the Australian side, and if Australia are to compete they will need him to score big. He was out playing an uncharacteristic shot in the previous Test and will know well that he needs to bat long this time around as Australia struggle their way through the series.
Two Tests and two player of the match awards. Ravindra Jadeja has been Australia’s biggest threat here and is bowling really well, making it very tough for the batters to sweep him. His flat and fast line continuous to be effective and Australia will know that they can only compete if they find a way to tackle Jadeja.

India remain favorites with the spin twins in form and with Australia struggling to make impact.
