Aaron Finch: Great to have cricket back, in front of some fans as well. Just the one change, Steve Smith comes in for Mitchell Marsh. Reasonably good pitch, hopefully, we can put up a good total and it’ll spin later on.
Virat Kohli: I think it’s very important to start well for us as a team. When you come to a place like Australia, you want to set the momentum early. We were given a few allowances to be able to train and the boys took it really well. We got a bit of lead time, which I think is priceless in today’s international schedule. Mayank Agarwal’s going to start. He’s a really exciting player, had a great IPL. He’ll start with Shikhar. The five guys who miss out are Manish Pandey, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Shardul Thakur, and Natarajan.
