The Indian cricket team named their playing XI for the much-awaited boxing-day Test match against Australia, which will kickstart on December 26. After suffering a humiliating defeat in the first test match, team India has made four major changes in the squad.

While Prithvi Shaw has been dropped from the playing squad, on the other hand, Shubman Gill and Mohammed Siraj will be making their Test debuts. Gill has come in place of Prithvi Shaw, who failed to make full use of the opportunity of the chances given to him. Also, Mohammed Siraj has come in place of Mohammed Shami, who got injured during the first test match.

Apart from them, Rishabh Pant replaced Wriddhiman Saha as the wicket-keeper as Ajinkya Rahane will be seen leading the team as a skipper in the absence of Virat Kohli, who has left for India to be there for his wife Anushka Sharma during the birth of his child.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has also been included in the playing XI as team India will go in with five bowlers for the Boxing Day Test.
