Tim Paine has already said that all Aussie bowlers are fit and raring to go.
India's unwavering pursuit of history hit a minor glitch in 11th hour injury concerns but Virat Kohli's men will still walk in as overwhelming favourites against a faltering Australia in the fourth and final Test starting Thursday.
The status of Ravichandran Ashwin's injury caused some confusion on Wednesday, with the team management naming the off-spinner in the final 13 for the fourth Test against Australia minutes after skipper Virat Kohli said that the senior player "has not recovered in time". He has flown back to India and will miss the Sydney Test.
Australia, under Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist, created history in 2004-05 as they became the first team to win the Border-Gavaskar series away from home.
India are also likely to go with two spinners given the conditions.
"The reason why we want to win this Test is because we understand as cricketers how hard it is to come here and play".
"Well, it's unfortunate that he has had two niggles quite similar in the last couple of away tours", Kohli said.
Toronto Raptors silence the Utah Jazz with 122-116 win

A first-class average of 33 suggests Labuschagne is very much a speculative pick by selectors but at age 24 he is young enough for them to take a leap of faith upon at a time when there are no standout candidates emerging from the Sheffield Shield.
Ashwin suffered an abdominal strain in the first Test in Adelaide that kept him out of the second and third Tests in Perth and Melbourne respectively.
"In test cricket, he's a vital part of this team and we wanted him to be 100 per cent fit fora longer period to that he can come back to us in the test format".
In Rohit Sharma's absence, out-of-favour opener KL Rahul could be slated for a comeback after missing out in Melbourne, with Hanuma Vihari slotting down to his number six spot. However, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya, along with coach Ravi Shastri were spotted wearing TeamIndia blazers. So to take that challenge on, we want to win here. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh will in all probability make way for Labuschagne's return to the Test squad.
Australia also decided against naming a team on Wednesday as they searched for the ideal "balance" to their side for a fourth and final test they must win on a wicket they believe will offer some turn.
KL Rahul, who was axed for the last Melbourne Test, is back in contention and could open the innings with Mayank Agarwal, with Hanuma Vihari dropping back down to No.6 as cover for Rohit Sharma. The fourth and the final match of the series starts on January 3, 2018.
