India vs Australia 4th Test team news and playing XI

Iyer is uncapped at global level but boasts serious form against Australia, having finished 202 not out while batting for India A during the visitors' only tune-up for the current series. However, only a win for India will give them the coveted trophy.

And Australia's plans for this tour of India - a campaign of which Smith is immensely proud regardless of what happens in the final Test in Dharamsala - have been coming together since they were humiliated with a 0-3 defeat in Sri Lanka past year. I think the whole Indian team has (felt pressure), and probably the skipper more so. So if his presence on the field is going to lift your team up, even if he is 50% fit, 60% or 70% fit, it is his presence in the team that is going to energize the team, then you got to play him.

Long shot: Virat Kohli at an Indian nets session in Dharamsala on Friday.

The touring team also met exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, an experience, Smith hoped, would help him sleep better.

"You want to be fit for the game 100 percent but sometimes you have to respect the fact that these things (injury) are part of your career as well", Kohli said at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, which will be hosting its first test from Saturday. Though, he will have to pass the fitness Test in order to play for the fourth Test as he revealed in a press conference on March 24.

Earlier, on Fox Sports Australia's Facebook account, Kohli's image was put alongside that of a puppy, a kitten and a panda in a poll titled - "Vettel of the Week". His absence will give 22-year-old his maiden worldwide cap and will present Ajinkya Rahane a chance to lead India in the longest format for the first time. Rahane can be given a benefit of doubt as he was given the responsibility team all of a sudden.

United States vs Honduras
Bruce Arena just wanted three points in his return to the USA soccer team Friday night at Avaya Stadium . The U.S. posted their first shut-out of the hexagonal after giving up 6 goals in their first two games .

Harsha Bhogle fears that the glorification of aggressive on-field behavior by media on both sides and passions boiling over could harm Test cricket's reputation with the series on a knife-edge at 1-1. You got to convince him. Shreyas Iyer has been called up as his cover.

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy now rests in Australia's cabinet.

Kohli's counterpart, Steven Smith however rebuked Kohli's allegations and said that they never trolled Farhart, who himself is an Australian. India have extra pace options in reserve, depending on how the pitch and conditions reveal themselves on match day. There were talks of India playing five bowlers.

On pitches where visiting teams have struggled to secure even a draw, Australia have managed to keep the score to 1-1.

There is no chance that Glenn Maxwell sits out Dharamshala Test after scoring a century at Ranchi. The Australian fast bowler has done reasonably well in the domestic circuit.

It will be very important for Australia to have their key players stand up.
