England looks fresh with lot of youngsters under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan. Although he is short of runs, he was an ideal replacement for Cook. Morgan is a limiter over specialist with a range of his innovative shots. He is smart enough to handle pressure and lead England into the World Cup. With the likes of Anderson, Broad, Moeen Ali, Ian Bell, Joe Root and many more to name, he stands tall with a good squad.

Here is the squad details of England for Tri-Series and World Cup:
Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Alex Hales, Steven Finn, Gary Ballance, Jos Buttler (wicketkeeper), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Stuart Broad, Chris Jordan, Joe Root, James Taylor, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes.

Regarding team India, they have just concluded a fighting test series against home team Australia. Most of the players in the Indian squad are well versed with the Australian cricket conditions now. MS Dhoni who retired from test cricket has a lot to do in limited overs game. Expectations are high from his team as they have done pretty well in ODI cricket since they won the world cup in 2011. He would be glad to see the likes of Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane scoring runs down under. He would also enjoy the services of Ravindra Jadeja and Akshar Patel who are match winners with both bat and ball. Dhoni would be under pressure with a weak bowling line up but he also knows team's strengths that lies in batting and fielding.

Here is the Indian squad for World Cup and Tri-Series:
MS Dhoni (captain and wicketkeeper), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Akshar Patel, Mohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan, Stuart Binny, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ishant Sharma, Ambati Rayudu.

Home team Ausrtralia could be considered as favourites. They enjoy the home advantage and always look unbeatable in Australia. David Warner, Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, etc. would all be pumped up to go out there can score quick runs. Since Michael Clarke is still recovering from injury, George Bailey will take charge as the captain. Australian squad looks so strong that few important players may not get an entry into the playing XI.

The Australian squad for tri-nation series and world cup is given below:
Michael Clarke (captain), George Bailey, Mitchell Johnson, Glenn Maxwell, Xavier Doherty, Pat Cummins, Aaron Finch, James Faulkner, Brad Haddin (wicketkeeper), Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Shane Watson.

Ind vs Aus 4th Test Live Streaming

While ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is round the corner, we are witnessing a lot of shockers in cricket world. Someone of the calibre of Alastair Cook isn't picked up at all for the England squad, India's most successful captain MS Dhoni suddenly declares his retirement from test cricket. Virat Kohli will now be a full time captain of Indian test side. Thankfully the fans of MS Dhoni would still see him playing in ODI and T20 cricket until he decides to retire from those formats also. Let us see if young Kohli can take the team to another level or not, but we can expect a lot of positive intent in the 4th test at Sydney. Watch India vs Australia 4th test live streaming and telecast on Star Sports HD network in India with live Hindi commentary on Star Sports 3 channel. Here is how Sachin Tendulkar wished good luck to MS Dhoni.

Not only the sudden retirement gave the Indian think tank a shocker but it also left them uncertain about the right combination for the SCG test. Along with the think tank even Kohli would have his own ideas for the right XI. Wriddhiman Saha can be expected as an automatic replacement for MS Dhoni. Captain Kohli would be tempted to pick one or maybe two spinners this time as SCG offers a lot of help for slow bowlers. 

Axar Patel can be into contention to play with Ravichandran Ashwin. He has impressed everyone in the shorter formats and is capable enough to perform in the longer format. If Axar plays at SCG we may expect Shami or Umesh Yadav to be dropped if team India continues with four bowler strategy. 

As far as the batting line up is concerned, only Kohli, Murali Vijay and Rahane have been consistent so far. Let us see if Kohli opts for Dhawan or rests him due to his bad form. If he is rested we may see KL Rahul coming up the order to open with Murali Vijay. We might also see the likes of Rohit Sharma or Suresh Raina getting a chance in the playing XI. So much of uncertainty isn't it?

Some news from the Australian camp, Mitchell Johnson is doubtful for the 4th test due to soreness in his left hamstring. He was absent during the Australian training and his fitness will be further assessed before the start of 4th test match at Sydney Cricket Ground. If he is unavailable, we may see Mitchell Starc or Peter Siddle playing in the Australian XI.

The home team Australia has already won the Border Gavaskar Trophy and they would love to conclude the series 3-0. Meanwhile India will play for its pride and end the series with a test win in Australia. Don't forget we have a tri nation series to follow after fourth test that involves India, England and Australia. We will keep you updated with schedule, news and previews of the tri nation series in Australia.

India vs Australia 3rd Test Live

Tell us something new. India 2-0 down in an overseas test series has been a regular story for the disappointed Indian fans. The only difference this time has been narrow loss margins for India. A match win that looks so close looks too far in the end. Thanks to some batting collapses and loose bowling effort. India goes into the 3rd test at Melbourne cricket ground against Australia with a hope of keeping the series alive. Watch the test match live on Star Sports with live streaming on online and live telecast on Star Sports network in India. Enjoy live Hindi commentary on Star Sports 3 channel along with English commentary on Star Sports 1.

As usual there has been few controversies this time as well. Indian team can't stay away from controversies when they travel for a test series, isn't it? First the practice pitch issue at Brisbane and later a news about a spat between Dhawan and Kohli during the Gabba test. If India needs to win in Australia, they need to play as a unit with plan A as well as a plan B in place. It won't be easy to beat Australia at MCG with a lot of differences within the team.
India's top five batsmen have been contributing runs in patches but consistency from the top seven batsmen is need of the hour. Adding to the pain, the bowlers have shown a lot of indiscipline with line and length. A pitch where likes of Johnson or Hazlewood can take wickets, even Indian bowlers need to show their skills. Ashwin as the only full time spin option need to click at MCG.

The Australian team would be high in confidence especially under the captaincy of Smith who is in great form. He has been scoring runs like anything and looks unbeatable. David Warner consistently provides quick starts to Australian innings. Middle order is providing good number of runs. Nathan Lyon is sparkling as a spin option and its good to see Johnson back in form with the ball. Ryan Harris may get a chance to play at the MCG.

If we have to see another interesting test match at MCG all India needs to do is have a belief that they 'can win' a test match abroad. On the other hand Australia would always have an upper hand at home. Stay tuned to Star Sports for live cricket.
