India will miss skipper Virat Kohli, who has been ruled out due to a shoulder injury, and will be led by middle-order batsman Ajinkya 

Rahane.Ajinkya Rahane became India’s 33rd Test captain after injured Virat Kohli was ruled out of the fourth and deciding Test against Australia, here today.

Kohli suffered a shoulder injury while fielding in the Ranchi Test match. Left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav will be making his debut as India go back to five bowler theory with Bhuvneshwar Kumar replacing Ishant Sharma.

Yesterday Kohli had said that he will only play he is hundred percent fit but had admitted that there is every chance of the injury being aggravated during fielding.

Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav will make his Test debut, taking place of regular captain Kohli while Bhuvneshwar Kumar has replaced paceman Ishant Sharma.

Australia have fielded an unchanged side.

The series is locked 1-1.

Teams:

Australia: David Warner, Matt Renshaw, Steve Smith, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins, Steve O'Keefe, Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood.

India: KL Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Karun Nair, Ravichandran Ashwin, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Umesh Yadav.
