MS Dhoni made his return to the Indian side in place of Wriddhiman Saha while Josh Hazlewood replaced Peter Siddle in the Australian playing XI. This was the first instance where the right-arm medium pacer Hazlewood was playing for Australia in the longest format of the game.

He did not disappoint the selectors as he scalped 5 Indian wickets in his very first innings. Pujara, Kohli, Rahane, Dhoni, and Ashwin all fell prey to the speedster's pace. Hazlewood, batting at number 11 scored 32 valuable runs which helped Australia take the first innings lead. He dismissed Pujara and Dhoni again in the 2nd innings to complete a 7-wicket haul in the match.

Hazlewood has played 39 tests for his nation since then and is one of the integral parts of the Australian squad. He has picked up 151 wickets in his Test career so far.
