Australia's bowlers face heavier burden against India

  • India vs CA XI Freak ankle injury rules Prithvi Shaw out of Adelaide Test

The teams meet in the first of four Tests at Adelaide from Thursday in the wake of a scathing review into the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa which criticised Australian cricketers for "playing the mongrel" against opponents. "I can't describe what it is, not in front of the media".

The Adelaide Oval had hosted the first day-night Test in 2015, between Australia and New Zealand, which lasted three days.

It isn't the only headache for captain Kohli, who knows the quality and consistency of his attack is likely to decide whether India's bid for a maiden Test series win in Australia is successful. "He is very confident now and whatever adjustments he has to make he has already done it". "You don't get anything easy; they'll test us out over the next couple of days, which will be good, then you'll walk out into the middle knowing you've prepared well", he said.

"I am going to pick Australia, but don't ask me why I am picking them".

"Playing in Australia suits my game because I am a batsman who likes to play on the backfoot". And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit. "Our bowlers know what they have to do", he said.

There have been many instances of on-field heated exchanges between players of the two teams in the past series. "We got enough practice and we did what we wanted". Lucky the temperature didn't get above 25 degrees otherwise the final day's play of this condensed three-day fixture could have been quite unpleasant.

Disney will also be giving Netflix a run for its month with its service called Disney+ which will be launching in late 2019. In 2014, when Netflix first bought those rights, it paid $500,000 an episode.

Former India wicketkeeper Farokh Engineer said the Board of Control for Cricket in India had been "blinded" by Twenty20 to the detriment of an overall vision. "I don't know the reason, it could be the IPL which has helped produce good fast bowlers and is benefiting the Indian Test team at the moment".

Pujara said the visitors are not bothered about sledging. "We are focussed on playing good cricket and winning the series".

The 2018 Border-Gavaskar Test series, will get underway after India and Australia played out a 1-1 draw in the T20 worldwide series. We definitely want to win the series, but one Test match at a time.

"What we did really well previous year was build pressure, no-one eased up, and eventually the batsmen felt it".

"We had a fantastic series against India, closer than the margin suggests", said Gower, one of the leading Test batsmen of his era, during the inaugural Ranji Memorial Public Conversation on Cricket in London.
