Australia vs India 4th Test: Squad of Australia team

Australia vs India 4th Test is now the much awaited Test match to all cricket fans. It has become one of the most exciting and competitive Test match. India again stopped the record of Australia’s 16 consecutive Test win with the historic win in the third Test in Perth. It is sure that Australia team has lost their way to make new world record and it may not be able to get this chance ever. However, Ricky Ponting’s Australia team is seeking a win or at least a draw in the four and last Test match in the series to make sure the trophy.

Australia vs India 4th Test will kick-off 24th January at Adelaide Oval. It will begin 10:30 local time and 00:00 GMT. Fans of both teams are eagerly waiting to see the match live. This match will be shown on STAR CRICKET.

However, it is not less important match for Australia team. So, mighty Australia team should try to select their best players in their main squad. We can see some changes in the fourth Test. Australian destructive opening batsman Matthew Hayden perhaps will be recalled in Adelaide Test. He is now quite well for next week’s Test match.

Shaun Tait, who replaced with spinner Brad Hogg, finished the Test without taking any wicket. He has been selected in the 12-men squad but not sure in the main squad. So, Ponting hopes to play Brad Hogg too.

Thirty year old Chris Rogers, who scored 4 and 15 in his two innings, failed to prove his talent in his debut match in the third Test in Perth.

Except these two names, others are unchanged. But Australian selectors are not sure to play about Matthew Hayden. They want to give more time to left-hander Hayden for his full recovery.

Dear fans look at below where you can see squad of Australia team at a glance:-

Australian squad: Ricky Ponting (captain), Matthew Hayden, Phil Jaques, Mike Hussey, Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Adam Gilchrist, Brad Hogg, Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson, Stuart Clark, Shaun Tait.
