Umesh hits the timber! Renshaw has to go. Lovely ball from Umesh, this swung back in towards the left-handed Renshaw, he was looking to play a big drive straight, ended up leaving a big gap between bat and pad, the ball brushed the pad and pegged back the off stump

Three slips, a gully and a short leg for Umesh Yadav

Match 4, Ball 1: DROPPED: Warner gets a life straightaway! Karun Nair was a bit late to react at third slip, and to make things worse it rolls to third man for a boundary. Prodigious outswing for Bhuvneshwar, Warner was tempted to push at it, poor shot, Nair moved to his left but ended up sticking his left hand out

Beautiful, sunny morning in Dharamsala. Three slips and a gully  for Bhuvneshwar Kumar

India made two changes, bringing in Kuldeep Yadav in place of Kohli andBhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Ishant Sharma.

Mohammed Shami and Shreyas Iyer, two players who were drafted into the squad late yesterday, will miss out. Iyer was called up as cover for Kohli.

Kuldeep Yadav is a left-arm chinaman bowler, part of a rare breed. Other well-known chinamen bowlers are Brad Hogg, Paul Adams.

Australia are unchanged.

Toss: Australia have won the toss and they will bat first.

India captain Virat Kohli will miss the fourth and final Test against Australia with a shoulder injury he had suffered in the previous match in Ranchi, batting coach Sanjay Bangar said before the start of the match on Saturday.

Kohli, who hurt his shoulder while diving to stop a boundary in the drawn third test in Ranchi, was hoping to be fit for the decider at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium which is hosting its first Test.

Ajinkya Rahane will lead India in Kohli’s absence.

The four-match series between the world’s top two Test team is level at 1-1.

After a hectic Test season, India will be facing a determined Australia in the fourth and final Test in Dharamsala on Saturday.

During a press conference on Friday, Virat Kohli admitted that he is not even close to hundred percent fitness with a possibility that his right shoulder injury could get aggravated while fielding in the series decider.
