India vs Australia Flashback: Look At Top Five Test Clashes

India vs Australia Flashback: Look At Top Five Test Clashes”

On the other hand, India despite losing to South Africa and England overseas, have looked unstoppable in Tests. This factor could play to the strengths of Australia's fast bowlers using the Kookaburra ball more than it did to England's bowlers, who tend to exploit the more swing-friendly elements of the Dukes ball. Yes, they (will) miss Steve Smith and David Warner but I don't think they are vulnerable.

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.

Waugh's long-time team-mate Adam Gilchrist also singled out Kohli as the batsman India will rely heavily on.

"Sad that it happened the first time he came out on the field", star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin told reporters.

Their record in Australia, which starts with a crushing series loss to Don Bradman's side in 1948, is five wins from 44 Tests.

"Being the No. 1 Test team, we always look to win each and every series and this is no different", he said.

Kohli is confident that now is the time to buck that trend.

The India captain's peerless form heading into the series and the challenge of breaking through his formidable defence makes him the most valuable scalp in the visiting side and data produced by Cricviz may have unearthed the most likely method for capturing his wicket.

As for the competition provided by the inclusion of Marcus Harris and Peter Handscomb, alongside five of the batsmen who turned out in the UAE against Pakistan, Head predicted plenty of willing contests in the nets, not least when Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins are charging in. That was how India's previous Test tour of Australia played out, when the hosts gained a 2-0 advantage then drew the MCG and SCG clashes. The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier.

"Looking at how much experience we have gained in the four years since we have last been here, and how the team has played, we definitely feel we have what it takes to win Test matches away from home", he said in an interview with Macquarie Radio. "We know he's a good player, I've seen it first-hand at Bengaluru".

"We are not going to take them lightly at all. And I think it's important that we get those long partnerships together, in Australia that will really help us a lot". "I think the bowlers when they compete, and they're fierce and aggressive, I think they have that", he said in Adelaide.
