India lost the four-Test series 0-2 four years ago but Kohli amassed 692 runs at an average of 86.25, including four centuries.

"We got what we wanted in the practice game and the trainer and the physio has been monitoring the workload", Pujara said. And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit.

Paine concedes his pace attack of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins can get hot under the collar in the heat of competition, and urged them to not rise to any bait. Most of our batters are experienced enough. Even in the series which was played in India in 2016-17, he caused a lot of headaches for the Indian batting order.

"When you have faced some bowlers in the past, you know what are their strengths and weaknesses".

"The way you buzz around the field, the way you cut down runs, the way you create pressure, you don't have to say anything to have mongrel. I am confident but at the same time I would also like to respect the opposition".

"That was my basic fundamental after being dropped in England until now". When it comes to fast bowling, this is probably one of the best attacks we have in many years.

Hardie made headlines yesterday after claiming the scalp of the Indian skipper in the touring team's warm-up clash against a Cricket Australia XI at the SCG with a neat caught-and-bowled effort, on his way to figures of 4-50.

"Playing Australia in Australia is very tough but having said that this is India's best chance to win, especially because (Steve) Smith and (David) Warner are missing", he said.

Teenage prodigy Shaw, who became the youngest Indian to score a century on Test debut last month, injured his ankle in a freak accident during a tour match against a Cricket Australia XI.

"Being the No. 1 Test team, we always look to win each and every series and this is no different", he said. We would like to perform well and start off well. "We prepare out mindset to play four-day cricket". "From my perspective, it's hard to imagine that the first Test of the series is not at Gabba", Watson told CricketNext from Sharjah where he captained the Sindhis in the T10 League that culminated in Sharjah on Sunday night.

"I can not comment on what Australia will do".

"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.

Test cricket has suffered a marked decline in the West Indies, who dominated Test cricket from the late 1970s until the early 1990s, playing with a crowd-pleasing swagger.
