WACA (Perth): Electing to bat, India was 57 for no loss after 13 overs in the third Test against Australia at WACA Ground, Perth on Wednesday. Sehwag and Jaffer opened the innings for India.

Both the team have made two changes in the side that played in Sydney.

Australia have brought in fast bowler Shaun Tait in place of spinner Brad Hogg while injured Mathew Hayden has been replaced by Chris Rogers.

India have left out Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh. Virender Sehwag and Irfan Pathan have been included in their place.

Australia of course lead the 4-Test series 2-0; and the challenge for India will be to try and pull one back in the series on a track that's historically been the fastest and bounciest in the world. So not surprisingly, no subcontinental team has managed to as much as draw a Test here


Australia: P Jaques, Chris Rogers, Ricky Ponting (C), M Hussey, Michael Clarke, Andrew Symonds, Adam Gilchrist (W), Shaun Tait, Brett Lee, Mitchell Johnson, Stuart Clark

India: Virender Sehwag, Wasim Jaffer, Rahul Dravid (C), VVS Laxman, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni(W), Irfan Pathan, Anil Kumble, RP Singh, Ishant Sharma.
