9.30: Boxing day in G

Welcome, everyone to one of the cult days in the cricket calendar: Boxing Day at MCG. For a long time it looked like it wasn’t going to happen so it’s great that the series has arrived here and that we’re going to have 30,000 viewers. Just to summarize where we are in this competition – India must find a way to refrain from choosing the lowest test score (36) in Adelaide a week ago. We already know that they have made four changes in their attempt to do so – two of them imposed in the absence of Virat Kohli and Mohammed Shami – but it will be a powerful task. Australia are still without David Warner and have appointed an unchanged team. It is not uncommon for both XIs to be confirmed after 24 hours of play. The throw is half an hour away.

India will have two debutants: Shubman Gill and Mohammed Siraj. If you want to know a little more about Gill, an extremely talented batsman, check out this section below.
