Shubman Gill and Mohammed Siraj will be making their debut in the second Test against Australia starting from Saturday in Melbourne.
India head into the series 0-1 down and have made four changes to the XI that took the field in Adelaide. While Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami are enforced absences, Prithvi Shaw and Wriddhiman Saha have been left out of the team for the crucial match where India will be led by Ajinkya Rahane.
Gill, Siraj are joined by Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant as the four players who come into the side.
Cheteshwar Pujara has been named as the vice-captain of the side.
Australia head into the Boxing Day clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on a high after a massive win by eight wickets inside three days in the opening Test at Adelaide.
Gill has replaced Shaw in the lineup, while Siraj comes in for Shami. Jadeja returns to the Test XI as India have gone with two spinners. India have essentially strengthened their bowling instead of opting to replace Kohli with a specialist batsman.
Rishabh Pant replaces Saha in the XI as the wicket-keeper.
Australia, on the other hand, plan to stick with the same XI according to coach Justin Langer.
Ajinkya Rahane (C), Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill (debut), Cheteshwar Pujara (VC), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj (debut).
