kuldeep was struggling to bowl in england and didnt much even in A games against Aus-A

As of now Ashwin is our best option

Kuldeep shud be taken once he shows some consistency with red ball or else he travel on those patttas

Sunar not a test match bowling option

Vs WI

 

After seeing the work load on pacers due to the 5 test series and batsmen getting out soon to not provide the bowlers with enough rest b/w the innings, it would not be a bad idea to rest 1-2 of Shami, Bumrah (also in Asia Cup) and Ishant. 

 

Bring in Siraj and use one of the above or Yadav or Bhuvi if fit. Pandya will be the 3rd seamer. And then you have 2 spinners

They are playing in a brand new stadium I believe.

 

Yes, Perth is a brand new stadium, a lot of our sporting infrastructure is getting an upgrade after the test series against India.

Australia are without five first-choice players for the two Tests in Pakistan, with Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft are suspended, while Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins have only just returned from injury. Five of the squad are yet to play a Test. So, who makes up the 15-man squad?

I guess that Hazlewood and Cummins would be available for the series vs Ind. That means we could be facing the Starc-Cummins-Hazlewood attack

Even with their second string bowlers Bewda and his Poyzz are sitting ducks!!
