IND v AUS Live: Mitchell Starc replaces skipper Pat Cummins for the third Test in Indore

The third Test match between India and Australia is currently being played at Indore.

Indian cricket team and Australia have begun the third game of the Test series in Indore today. Indian team won the toss and will bat first. Both the teams made two-two changes in their playing XI. However India rested players like KL Rahul and Mohammad Shami but Australia had to make necessary changes.

Australian captain Pat Cummins has flown back to Australia as his mother is unwell so he automatically got ruled out for this game. David Warner who got a blow on his head during the second game in Delhi was also ruled out and thus Australia has to make those changes in their playing XI.


Mitchell Starc has replaced Pat Cummins whereas Cameroon Green has been named in the XI in place of injured David Warner. Both these players are also in red hot form and could be a threat to India in the third game.

Mitchell Starc has a good bowling experience in different pitches and also can do reverse swing. Indian batters will have to be extra cautious now as Mitchell Starc is a good bowler with an excellent pace.
