Net session to determine Australian XI for series-opening Test against India

For the first time, perhaps, India have come to Australia with their bowlers in collective good form. Mitchell Johnson became so frustrated with the unresponsive decks here and overseas that this played a major role in his decision to retire from global cricket.

"I think he is a clever bowler, reads the batsman really well and if you see his recent bowling he has made a lot of adjustments which have helped him", said Pujara of Ashwin who has claimed Shaun Marsh four times.

Marsh said the new faces and inexperience in the Australian batting line-up should be seen as an opportunity, rather than a sign of weakness for the hosts.

Every Test, ODI, T20I, and BBL match live & ad-break free during play. "But we all feel really good at the moment", he said.

Twenty-three-year-old left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav has already become a big name among world's most prominent spinners of the current era.

But it is the five-day format that Kohli and India are looking to conquer, with India never having won a series in Australia in more than 70 years of trying.

"If it happens it happens but we are not very much focused on it, we want to win the Test and series". "It will be a great contest", he replied. He returned to run through Australia's lower order, taking four quick wickets.

"He's my brother and my best mate. I've got tremendous faith in the top order".

"Their batsmen, yes, are not that experienced but still I feel they are equally risky".

The all-rounder said he is also fully fit to bowl and hopes to be a vital fifth cog in the Australian attack, comprising of three pacers and Nathan Lyon. "My goal for this summer is to start chipping in with the ball and get a few more wickets for the team". "I'm doing my best to make the number six position my own in this team, so that's all I can do", he added.

He did not have the best of times in the Tests in UAE recently but said that he was pumped to be back home and will try his best to give Australia a winning start in the series.

"When it comes to Indian cricket we will play a brand of cricket we have been playing".

Warne's scathing assessment came midway through the first Test of Australia's series against Pakistan - which they would go on to draw, following a defiant century to Usman Khawaja and stoic supporting roles from Travis Head and Tim Paine. "But we are just pumped to get back playing in front of our fans", he said. If it means bowling eight good overs in a spot and getting a wicket for the team, they are ready to that.

It is fair to say that India lost the series in South Africa and England because their batting failed to live up to the promise shown by their bowlers.

"If you get out of our net session and you're not injured, you've had a good net". With the help of his ability to swing the ball both ways and occasional knuckle balls, Bhuvneshwar has picked up 63 wickets in 21 Test matches so far.
