India vs Australia Test series preview

Adelaide Domain Test- Australia vs India @ Adelaide Oval

Adelaide Domain Test- Australia vs India @ Adelaide Oval

More recently he was in the stands for Nathan Lyon's last-day heroics to bowl out India in 2014, the emotional first Test played after the death of Phillip Hughes.

"He also likes to run the ball down to third man so may be play around with guys behind the wicket in different areas, just get inside his head as to what we are trying to do".

Speaking at a news conference Monday as India's players surprised observers by taking a rest day three days out from the start of the first Test, Pujara said Ashwin had been working hard to conquer his record of under-performance in Australian conditions. "So we'll be looking to replicate that and test it against one of the best batting orders in the world".

"Apart from Kohli himself no other batsman is making runs".

The match doesn't have first-class status, as per India's request, and it's generally foolish to read too much into any tour game but Kohli won't be thrilled with the output of his pacemen. While the onus will be on the experienced Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma, India will also bank on Jasprit Bumrah to put the Australian batsmen under pressure.

Langer told cricket.com.au: "I reckon he'll be treated like (uncapped opener) Marcus Harris - come in for the first time in the change-rooms, meet all the boys and like always when you come into that inner sanctum of the Baggy Green, it's like joining the brotherhood".

These are the burning questions that loom large ahead of a mouthwatering Test series between Australia and India, beginning on Thursday.

Kohli is confident that now is the time to buck that trend. "Hopefully, we can carry that momentum forward into the first Test", Vijay said. The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier. India are the No.1 side in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Team Rankings, and though they haven't won series in the countries considered the toughest to tour for teams from the subcontinent, they have competed hard, an ICC report on Sunday said.?Now the focus is purely and exclusively on making the team win at any cost, ? "We know he's a good player, I've seen it first-hand at Bengaluru".

Australia took a 1-0 lead into this fiery Bangalore Test previous year and when Nathan Lyon took 8/50 to bamboozle the Indian batsmen for 189, it looked like the tourists would go 2-0 up. "And I think it's important that we get those long partnerships together, in Australia that will really help us a lot".

"The thing with Virat, he has every plan under the sun tried against him and he has countered all of them", Paine said.
