IND vs AUS Test Series 2020: David Warner and Will Pucovski have been included in the updated Test squad of Australia for the third and fourth Tests against India. Meanwhile, Joe Burns has been dropped from the squad.

Joe Burns has been dropped following his scores 8, 51 no, 0, and 4 in the opening two Tests. Warner was expected to return to the top of the order as he continued to recover from his groin injury.

Likewise, Will Pucovski was expected to make his Test debut in the first match of the IND vs AUS Test series 2020 but the ninth concussion of his young career ruled him out of the opening two matches.

With the return of Pucovski, there might be chances that he can debut at the Sydney Cricket Ground next week as Australia will look to respond to India's eight-wicket win at the Melbourne Test that levelled the four-match series 1-1.
