India with a low-key beginning of the match as KL Rahul lasted only six balls. Rahul, who came in place of Rohit Sharma was caught at first slip by Shaun Marsh off Josh Hazlewood to leave India at 1/10 in the very second over on Day 1 of the Sydney Test Thursday.
This fall of Rahul bought Cheteshwar Pujara early in the centre, to be with Mayank Agarwal, who’s playing his second match after making debut in the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne last week.
The Indian Skipper Kolhi earlier won the toss and opted to bat in the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
India made two changes from the eleven that won the third Test in Melbourne with Lokesh Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav coming in for Rohit Sharma and Ishant Sharma.
Spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and pacer Umesh Yadav, who were named on Wednesday among 13 players, did not make it to the playing eleven.
Australia also made two changes with Peter Handscomb and Marnus Labuschagne replacing Aaron Finch and Mitchell Marsh.
India have already taken an 2-1 lead in the four-match series.
