The Aussies will be looking to build a strong playing XI, after some of its key Test players were ruled out due to injuries. David Warner was omitted after he was declared unfit for the 1st Test due to a groin injury. Will Pucovski, who suffered a concussion, was also ruled out. The biggest scare came on Tuesday, when Steve Smith left training in just 10 minutes due to back soreness. However, the good news is Australia will have their strike bowlers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins back into the squad.

India, on the other hand, will be without Rohit Sharma, who is most likely to play the third Test if declared fit. The Indian team management is more or less settled except the opening pair, which is still a headache for them. Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw are in contention for the top two batting order.

But whatever the playing XI be, India vs Australia Test has had some of the best moments. Ahead of the thrilling clash lets look at top 10 Test records:
