Australia, on the other hand, is likely to go with a new opening pair in David Warner
and Will Povoscki in place of Joe Burns, who was axed from Australian squad for the last two matches, and Mathew Wade. However, it would be interesting to see whether Wade will retain his place in the Australian line-up given the southpaw played some solid knocks in the first two Test matches of the series.
