Matt Kuhnemann will become Australia’s 466th men’s Test cricketer with the tourists going with a rare three-spinner bowling attack for the clash with India at Delhi.The Queensland left-arm orthodox spinner only joined the 18-man touring squad earlier this week after state teammate Mitchell Swepson returned home for the birth of his first child. He has been presented with his baggy green cap in a pre-match ceremony by another state teammate, Marnus Labuschagne.Australian skipper Pat Cummins has won the Test and elected to bat. Cummins confirmed Travis Head has been recalled to bat in the middle order ahead of Matt Renshaw, who made just a duck and two in the first Test drubbing at Nagpur.Matthew Kuhnemann is congratulated after receiving his baggy green cap.

Scott Boland, who bowled well without taking a wicket in Nagpur, has made way for Kuhnemann.Cummins will likely share the new ball with Nathan Lyon or Todd Murphy, who took seven wickets on debut last week, or Labuschagne, who has bowled medium pace for Queensland in the Sheffield Shield, could also be given a trundle before the spinners take over.
“The middle [of the pitch] looks like it’s got a little bit of grass but it’s pretty bare at both ends so I’m guessing there will be a bit of turn there so it’ll be a good challenge for our team,” Cummins said after calling correctly at the toss. “We’ve all lost games before and had to bounce back so that’s the challenge for the group this week. It has been a really good preparation, everyone’s raring to go.” Kuhnemann has come from the clouds to overtake fellow left-armer Ashton Agar in the pecking order but the 26-year-old has a solid record at Shield level with 35 wickets from 13 matches at 34.8 and he got a taste of international cricket last year in July when he played four ODIs on the tour of Sri Lanka.Australia have not gone into a Test with three frontline spinners since the tour of Bangladesh six years ago when Lyon, Agar and Steve O’Keefe teamed up with all-rounder Glenn Maxwell also chiming in with his offies.Matt Kuhnemann.

Head’s omission from the first Test was controversial with the likes of former Test captain Steve Waugh and The Roar columnist Damien Fleming saying they were perplexed by the decision to drop the in-form left-hander despite his poor record in Asian conditions.India have made just one change with middle-order batter Shreyas Iyer returning from a back injury to replace Suryakumar Yadav at No.5 for what will be Cheteshwar Pujara’s 100th Test.The Indians have not lost at Arun Jaitley Stadium since 1987 before any players from either of this week’s teams were born.Australian XI: David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith (v-c), Travis Head, Peter Handscomb, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Todd Murphy, Matt Kuhnemann, Nathan Lyon.India XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Srikar Bharat, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami.
