The squad to be led by Steve Smith includes six batsman, four spin bowlers, three pace bowlers, two all-rounders and a wicketkeeper. Uncapped leg-spinner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Mitchell-Swepson" target="_blank">Mitchell Swepson</a> was named in the team to boost the spin contingent, which also includes <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Nathan-Lyon" target="_blank">Nathan Lyon</a> and left-arm orthodox Ashton Agar and Steve O'Keefe. However, Zampa was a surprise omission from the 16-man Test. <p></p> <p></p> Obviously from the press conference with Trevor Hohns, they ve gone for a more attacking option, news.com.au quoted Zampa as saying. It s disappointing just being seen as just a defensive option. I thought the defensive bowling style usually works in those conditions and my experience over there could ve helped. But it s nice to have that healthy competition now. Mitchell Swepson s a very good bowler. I ve watched him throughout the BBL, he added. Swepson has just 14 first-class games to his name, taking 41 wickets at an average of 33, whereas, Zampa has 62 scalps at 50 from 25 matches. The 24-year-old has taken 18 wickets in 11 limited-overs matches on the subcontinent for Australia. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/david-boon-matthew-hayden-and-betty-wilson-inducted-into-australian-cricket-hall-of-fame-569305" target="_blank">Boon, Hayden and Wilson inducted into Australian Cricket Hall of Fame</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/Australia" target="_blank">Australia</a>, which sit at the second spot in the ICC Test Rankings following a 3-0 whitewash in their home series against Pakistan, will face a herculean task against the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Virat-Kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a>-led side. Australia have not won a Test in India since 2004 and their last series victory in Asia came against Sri Lanka in 2011.They have since suffered nine straight Test losses in the subcontinent.
