Adelaide Domain Test - Australia vs India

Sachin Tendulkar Australia vs India 2018

It will be interesting to see what team combination will team India field in the first Test match at the Adelaide Cricket Ground, Adelaide, starting December 6!

Every Test, ODI, T20I, and BBL match live. "Our bowlers know what they have to do. they know what line and lengths to bowl in Australia". Ravichandran Ashwin ended with figures of 2/122. We also had some net practice while the game was going on so I don't think it was a concern at all. "We thought that it was best to take a break today and train for the next two days and be fresh for the Test match", Pujara said.

The Australians will be coming face-to-face with famously combative Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who thrives on the verbal banter and has never been shy of riling the opposition.

But the bowling attack is settled with quicks Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon to be tasked with combating Kohli. He's an extremely good player, but I think we've got the bowlers to do the job. "He reads the batsmen really well". "I can't describe what it is, not in front of the media".

Kohli has played Test cricket in Australia during the 2011-12 tour, and then in 2014-15. So I think when he's playing in Australia, he knows what he has to do. "He is very confident now and whatever adjustments he has to make he has already done it".

Watson, who has been playing franchise cricket around the world since his global retirement in 2016, also reflected on his experience of playing in the most curtailed of all formats after the second season of the T10 league wound up.

Meanwhile, India is yet to win a Test series in their previous 11 tours to this country. In addition to all that, he bats alongside Kohli, who revels in all the attention he receives.

"With Smith and Warner not being there the pressure of winning will be that much more on Kohli".

"It doesn't mean we'll be the nicest team in the world to play against by any stretch of the imagination".

"It's always about batting as a unit". With the wicket, the extra grass, the thatchiness of the grass, it brings spin into play, it's spun from day one in the Shield game, we saw Popey [wrist spinner Lloyd Pope] take a seven-for on day one, so all round, Houghy's done an unbelievable job. "We got enough practice and we did what we wanted".

On Australia, Chappell said the hosts would be surprising quite a few if they manage to put 350-plus totals on the board consistently.

"They have got some terrific fast bowlers".

Paine hopes the series-opener against India will return a focus to on-field performances rather than the widespread ructions.

Curator Damien Hough has promised to leave some grass on the pitch for the series opener between India and Australia even though it will be a day affair, unlike the three day-night Tests played at the venue in the past three seasons. "We definitely want to win this series but will take one Test at a time".

"We're taking the opportunity at the moment to actually send him back to play a Shield game, get some more cricket under his belt, knowing at some stage we're probably going to need him".
