The Australian team, which is coping with an unprecedented sacking of four key players on disciplinary grounds, on Tuesday underwent an extensive training session before the third Test against Indiastarting in Mohali on Thursday.

A day after the team management made the shocking announcement that vice-captain Shane Watson, two frontline pacemen James Pattinson and Mitchell Johnson and batsman Usman Khawaja had been dropped from the team on disciplinary grounds, it seemed business as usual at the nets.

Brad Haddin reached in Mohali as cover for injured Matthew Wade, who had sprained his ankle while playing basketball in Chandigarh last week.
