Watch India vs Australia live stream: game preview

India and Australia are going head-to-head in what is a four-match series between the two leading sides in Test cricket. The Men in Blue still have the upper hand, having won the first two tests in the hunt for the Border-Gavaskar trophy. 

Rohit Sharma's men were odds on for a 4-0 whitewash, but the Aussies managed to mount a serious comeback in the 3rd Test, winning by nine wickets in Indore to make it 2-1 in the series.

The fourth and final Test takes place at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, and India need to win it if they're to qualify for the WTC finals. Australia have already qualified, so the pressure's off

The early teams news is in and KS Bharat is tipped to make way for Ishan Kishan, potentially giving India the extra firepower they need to win the decider and secure the series win. Mohammed Shami will once again lead the pace attack in place of the injured Jasprit Bumrah.

Australia arrived in India in good form, but were undone by some big injuries, with with pace men Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc both sidelined for the first encounter in Nagpur along with allrounder Cameron Green. 

As for the conditions, stand-in captain Steve Smith reckons that the Ahmedabad pitch will start to break due to the dry heat: 

"I think it's 38 degrees out there at the moment, it's pretty hot. Looks like it'll dry out as the day goes on," noted Smith. "One of the groundsmen said they might be watering it again today. So yeah, we'll wait and see but in terms of the day before, it certainly looks like it's likely to do less on day one than we've seen so far."
