David Warner will miss the Adelaide pink-ball Test against India.

Tendulkar would not, however, join that debate, saying instead: "Let's understand, this is not about individuals".

"When you lose an experienced player like this (Kohli) there is without any doubt a void", Tendulkar, the record run-maker and former India captain told AFP in an interview.

In contrast, fellow prospect Will Pucovski and veteran Joe Burns, in line to form Australia's top order, both flopped in the warm-up match and Pucovski also had to leave the field with concussion symptoms after a delivery struck his helmet. After this, he was also added to the ODI team as a backup to Navdeep Saini. The Aussies, who won the ODIs 2-1, would be without the services of David Warner for the first Test, who's out due to an injury.

The visitors had elected to field against Australia after winning the toss.

Covid deaths at record high as European Union approves second vaccine
Margaret Keenan, 90, received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at University Hospital in Coventry, England, on 8 December. But with the virus threatening to spiral out of control, some argue we're in far from an ideal situation.

India will have a final warmup against Australia A at the Sydney Cricket Ground from Friday, a three-day pink ball match to prepare for the first day-night test against Australia.

In accordance with Article 2.22 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to minimum over-rate offences, players are fined 20 per cent of their match fees for every over their side fails to bowl in the allotted time.

However, an injury to spinner Varun Chakravarthy opened up a spot for Natarajan in the limited-overs squad and he made an instant impact, dismissing Marnus Labuschagne and Ashton Agar on his One-Day International debut in the third game of the series in Canberra.

After guiding his team to the victory, Swepson said: "It was obviously really nice to get some wickets through the middle there. When a couple of your senior members are not there, suddenly that void is felt and that is what Australia felt".

The 29-year-old emerged as a reliable death-bowling option for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League this season and was initially picked as a net bowler for India's tour Down Under. So it doesn't matter what kind of surface you are playing on, you have got all sides covered. When it comes to variations and awkwardness, that is also there. "We have got a wrist spinner, we have got finger spinners".
