India are coming into the second one Test after suffering an eight-wicket hammering at the Adelaide Oval in the series opener.
The visitors will be taking the field without their captain Virat Kohli, who flew back to India to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.
India, earlier in the day, announced their playing XI for the Boxing Day Test.
Ajinkya Rahane will lead the side in the absence of Kohli and the visitors made four changes to their last XI from the first Test.
Prithvi Shaw used to be replaced by Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant came in for Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja used to be included in place of Kohli.
Mohammed Shami, who got injured in the first Test after being hit by a Pat Cummins bouncer, used to be replaced by Mohammed Siraj.
Both Gill and Siraj are set to make their Test debut in the second one Test against Australia.
Australia lead the four-match series, 1-0.
