Marcus Harris replaces Will Pucovski in Brisbane Test against India

Tim Paine's Australia have named their playing XI for the final test in Brisbane starting from tomorrow. Marcus Harris has replaced, Will  Pucovski in the squad who is struggling with a shoulder injury. Harris was Pucovski's opening partner for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield earlier this season and the pair shared a record-breaking stand of 486 against South Africa with Harris making 239. He followed that with scores of 71 and 45 against West Australia then made 35, 25 not out, 26 and 5 for Australia A in the two warm-up matches. 

Pucovski's shoulder injury is another tough blow for the 22-year-old who was finally able to make his much-anticipated Test debut at the SCG and hit a composed 62 in the first innings. The four-match series currently stands at 1-1, with Australia winning the first at Adelaide and India second at Melbourne. The Ajinkya Rahane-led Indian side once again made a strong comeback in the third Test to register a sensational draw at Sydney. A win for the hosts will ensure that they will not lose a series to India, but a loss will see India move closer to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy for a second time.
