Australia have had a disastrous tour to India, with half of the Test team either not available or injured. Captain Pat Cummins has returned home due to a family illness, while injured pacer Josh Hazlewood and opener David Warner have also been ruled out of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. The 3rd Test of the series gets underway on Wednesday, March 1. Matt Renshaw was introduced by Australia as a concussion substitute in the 2nd Test, after Warner suffered a concussion and a hairline fracture. Mitchell Swepson returned home for the birth of his first child and was replaced in the squad by Matthew Kuhnemann. India have already retained the Trophy, winning the first two Tests.
