It is a must-win tie for Virat Kohli's side, who lost the first match by 34 runs on Saturday in Sydney.

There is a lot at stake for both the sides.

India will need to be more clinical in the final phase of the match, both with their bowling and batting.

The visitors conceded 93 runs in the last 60 deliveries at the SCG.

This helped Aussies to gain the momentum.

The lower middle-order in batting is a matter of concern for Kohli.

Whoever comes in, he will need to justify with a match-winning knock.

One can expect Kedar Jadhav, if fit, returning to the starting XI ahead of Dinesh Karthik.
