Australia are down but one can never count them out. Michael Clarke has ably led his side with stellar performances but would want a team effort in Hyderabad. A few changes will definitely be on the cards for the visitors with an added spinner a possibility. (Photo credit: PTI)

Nathan Lyon was largely ineffective as Dhoni and co. came into their own in Chennai. Many believe that the offie needs a rest while some are of the view that another spinner must be drafted in to support Lyon. Australia, till now, have kept their cards close to their chest. (Photo credit: PTI)
All the eyes will not be on the players, it is the 22-yards that matter too. Chennai pitch suited Indian spinners a great deal despite the hosts losing the toss and fielding first. Will Hyderabad be more true a pitch or will it crumble the same way as the Chepauk one? Watch out Dhoni and Clarke! (Photo credit: PTI)
