Ind vs Aus: Twitter has started reacting to the big move where Rahul gets dropped. Here is how fans are already thanking the BCCI for taking the decision.
Indore: So yes, as expected – KL Rahul has been dropped for the third Test at Indore. Rahul, who was the vice-captain of the side, was out-of-form and that is the reason why he has had to make way for young Shubman Gill. After the second Test in Delhi, Rahul was removed as the vice-captain of the side and since then there were talks that he may be dropped.

Meanwhile, India has opted to bat first at the Holkar stadium. India has made two changes to their playing XI. Shubman Gill comes in for KL Rahul, while Mohammed Shami makes way for Umesh Yadav.
“It is a pretty good dressing room and like you said the morale is high. The guys are confident about their skills which is a good thing moving forward. We have played a lot of cricket (here) but this one (surface) is slightly different. Looks little dry and you have to adapt your skills and be at it all the time. We are there yet (WTC final) and we have to come and win this game, we have to try and repeat the things we did in the first two Tests,” Rohit said at the toss.
Australia (Playing XI): Usman Khawaja, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith(c), Peter Handscomb, Cameron Green, Alex Carey(w), Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy, Matthew Kuhnemann
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Srikar Bharat(w), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
