`Injured` Mitchell Marsh ruled out of rest of India Tests

"In fact he really played well in the second innings in Pune where he scored 31".

The Aussies will next go against India for the third Test match of the series in Ranchi on March 16.

Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright are now under consideration for Marsh?s replacement.

Team physiotherapist David Beakley on Wednesday said Marsh had been playing with the injury for most of the summer season, "which we have been managing up until now. but unfortunately it has progressively deteriorated to a point where he is unable to function at the level required".

Stoinis will head to India after the conclusion of Victoria's Sheffield Shield game against Western Australia in Alice Springs.

But selectors were wooed by his unbeaten knock of 146 at Eden Park during Australia's ODI tour of New Zealand last month.

After the loss in Bengaluru, it'll be interesting to see if the visitors decide to pick Glenn Maxwell or Ashton Agar as an all-round option or go for the specialist batsman in Usman Khawaja.

The break between Tests will allow Australia's bowlers to freshen up physically, particularly the pacemen and also the spin bowler Nathan Lyon, who is battling a raw and bleeding spinning finger.

Khawaja made scores of 26, 18, 11 and 0 in four innings in Sri Lanka a year ago but bounced back with two knocks of 97 and a match-winning 145 in the day-night Test at the Adelaide Oval this summer, passing 50 in every Test he played.

Mumbai: Outspoken Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh had predicted a minimum 3-0 win for India in the four-match Border-Gavaskar series before the contest began.
