The third game between India and Australia is slated to take place on 1st March in Dharamshala whereas the last game will be played on 9th March in Ahmedabad.
With just a few days remaining before the start of the first game, India have suffered a major blow. It is learned as per the reports in Indian Express Shreyas Iyer is ruled out of the first Test against Australia.
Iyer suffered a knee injury ahead of the ODI series against New Zealand and was ruled out of the series. He was then shifted to NCA for rehab. But as the reports, he is deemed unfit to play first game and will join the team ahead of the second game.
The reports also suggested that Suryakumar Yadav is likely to make his debut for India in the middle order in the first Test against Australia. The batter notably, has been a fine run scorer in domestic circuit and would want to seal the opportunity.

Hell bent on destroying format specialists by adding extra workload aisa bhi nahi hai ki options nahi hai but the three format obsession. https://t.co/si5sxhhAI0

He'll score well….but an L overall for BCCI. Gives a message to youngsters for no need to perform in domestics, just grind yourself in Mumbai Indian's scout process, you'll get your spot in Indian team. https://t.co/B9qZPV5KOz

So happy for India we can finally select players on basis of their hype and vibe and favouritism. Picking someone on domestic performance is so outdated only champion teams used to pick players like that. https://t.co/kArj9ym4W3

IMO release Iyer from the squad until he's fully fit. Pick sarfaraz in the squad for justice.. https://t.co/LkHd7g9qGE
