Stand in Australia captain Steve Smith will lead his troops into battle at The Gabba in Brisbane this evening knowing that a victory for his side will allow them to take control of the series.
Smith replaces Michael Clarke for the remainder of the four test series, with the Aussie captain set to have surgery on a hamstring injury – one that he admits could prevent him from ever playing again.
Whilst all-rounder Smith will step in as Australia’s 45th test captain of all time, Clarke’s place in the middle order will be taken by left hander Shaun Marsh of the Western Wanderers.
India will also have a different captain from their defeat in the first test, with MS Dhoni returning to the team having recovered from a thumb injury to replace Virat Kohli.
The tourists know that they need to avoid defeat to keep their hopes of winning the series alive, but that will be a tough order at The Gabba, where Australia are notoriously strong.
