Team News:
Captain Tim Paine said a final look at the pitch at the Sydney Cricket Ground was needed before they finalised XI for the fourth Test.
Marcus Harris will be opening the innings. However, with his poor performances, Finch may get shifted into the middle order rather than being dropped. Khawaja will then step up as the opener.
Shaun Marsh and Travis Head will follow them.
Tim Paine will be the wicketkeeper-Captain.
The bowling attack of Lyon-Cummins-Hazlewood-Starc remains unchanged.
Marnus Labuschagne has been called up. He bats in the middle order and bowls useful leg spin. He can replace Mitchell Marsh as an all-rounder.
Peter Handscomb has also a chance to play this match after his spectacular showing in the BBL.

Rohit Sharma has arrived in India to be with his new-born daughter so will miss out on the fourth Test.
India Dropped Ishant Sharma from the 13-man squad.
Ravi Ashwin is part of India’s 13-man shortlist for the Test at SCG but will be assessed for fitness on the morning of the game.
Mayank Agarwal and  KL Rahul will be opening the innings. Pujara-Kohli-Rahane shall occupy the middle order.
Ravindra Jadeja as spinner/lower order batsman and Shami-Bumrah will complete the bowling attack.
