India after winning the 1st Test match against Australia very convincingly will look to continue their dominance in this series with the help of their top order batsman and spin trio of Ashwin, Jadeja and Axar Patel. Australia's batting failure in 1st Test will allow them to make many changes in their Playing XI as only Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith looked somewhat convincing against this Indian spin attack. Travis Head is expected to be back in Australia's XI and for India, Shreyas Iyer is more likely to replace Suryakumar Yadav.
