  • Virat Kohli said Australia can be a great place to bat if the batsmen apply themselves well

India have never won a Test series in Australia and their recent oversees record has also been poor with 1-2 loss to South Africa in February and 1-4 defeat to England in September.

Australian cricket has been through a lot in the last nine months after the ball-tampering scandal hit and it will be their first home season after bans were imposed on Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft.

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect", he said. Langer called the newest Test member by the time Australia were playing Pakistan in UAE.

"There has been so much talk, it's time for action".

Mistakes were made and India paid the price for them in the two previous overseas tours of the year.

After all the talk, sledges, intent, and plenty of planning, the Test series between India and Australia is set to begin. But, for many, a win in the series could be his legacy as a captain.

"It's just about picking your time and picking your moment and doing what the team requires", he said.

Muted reaction in both the Chicago and Dalian futures markets on Monday underlined the lack of incentives for new purchases. China has made no direct mention of specific goods they will start to buy nor given any timeframe for when they may start.

Without Marsh in the team, captaincy duties would be most likely to fall to the limited-overs captain Aaron Finch or one of the state captains Usman Khawaja (Queensland) or Travis Head (South Australia) in the event of Paine suffering an injury.

A question mark remains over whether Peter Handscomb or Travis Head will fill the vacant middle-order spot.

But the Indian skipper is insisting he has grown up and will not be looking for confrontations, although he added that "if they want to play a certain way we will reciprocate". "Again, the workload on the guys will play (a part) in the absence of the all-rounder. but that's something that's already been discussed and they should look forward, not think of it as a burden or think things are tough".

". they're (India) up against a really talented young Australian cricket team who have got plenty to prove", he said.

Top order batsman Murali Vijay, who was dropped following the second Test against England at Lord's in August, was also included.

India have named a 12-man squad and will pick between Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari for the final batting place.
