Australia has already announced two changes to their side for the third Test in Perth. And now it seems, Team India is going to follow suit.

Virender Sehwag will in all probability replace Yuvraj Singh for India, as the team certainly looks to go in with three fast bowlers.

Yuvraj Singh, who has had six successive failures on this tour, will sit out.

Sehwag scored an impressive century in India's warm-up game against the ACT XI, and his inclusion as an opener will mean Rahul Dravid regaining his Number 3 slot.

India is also likely to field three pacers on the speedy Perth track. Irfan Pathan may get the third seamer's place, at the expense of Harbhajan Singh.

Australia has announced two changes to their side for their third Test against Indian at Perth starting on Wednesday.

Speaking to the media a short while ago, captain Ricky Ponting also said that he was disappointed that his fielding agreement with Anil Kumble had to be scrapped.
