It's a must-win game for a winless India on 'Republic Day' while the hosts, who are unbeaten so far in the three matches gone by, will also like to keep the winning momentum going on 'Australia Day'.

The hosts are playing fast bowler Josh Hazlewood, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and left-arm spinner Xavier Doherty. David Warner is back too.

India have picked fast bowler Ishant Sharma and spinning allrounder Ravindra Jadeja, who is playing his first international on the tour after recovering from injury. Stuart Binny, who is playing as the third seamer, will be expected to bowl ten overs today.
