2nd Test – Live Streaming – Where to watch India vs Australia match at MCG, full squad
The Indian cricket team arrive at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the second Test as they look to overcome the shock of Adelaide. In the Pink Ball Test, India were bundled out for 36 which is their lowest-ever total in their 88-year history of Test cricket. India will also be under a new leadership and some changes are in store for the Indian side ahead of the Boxing Day Test. Virat Kohli, who captained the India cricket team for the Adelaide Test, has returned back to India as he is on paternity leave. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are expected to become parents in the first week of January 2021. Ajinkya Rahane will captain the side as they look to stay alive in the four-Test series.
The Indian cricket team will be aiming to repeat their performances in the 2018/19 contest in Melbourne where Cheteshwar Pujara scored a century and Jasprit Bumrah took nine wickets to ensure India won at the MCG for the first time in 37 years. However, ahead of the match, India are expected to make as many as five changes. Apart from Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy, KL Rahul and Shubman Gill are expected to be back in the side while Rishabh Pant might take over the wicketkeeping duties from Wriddhiman Saha. Mohammed Siraj is expected to make his debut in place of Mohammed Shami while Ravindra Jadeja might replace R Ashwin in the all-rounder’s department as India look to add more depth to their batting.
