Australia and India come into the fourth and final Test of the series at the Gabba in Brisbane with the score tied at 1-1. If the fact that the Gabba is considered a fortress for the hosts is not daunting enough, India come into the match with a spate of injuries. Already having lost Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul, Hanuma Vihari and Ravindra Jadeja to injuries, the visitors are also set to take a call on senior bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin on the morning of the game. Australia too suffered an injury, with Will Pucovski replaced by Marcus Harris. Australia haven’t a Test match at the Gabba since West Indies beat them in Brisbane in 1988, and India have never tasted success there, with a draw in 2003 the best they have fared. Both teams will be looking to seal the hotly contested series with a win, but even a draw would see the series tied and the Border-Gavaskar trophy retained by the visitors. (LIVE SCORECARD)
