Mitchell Marsh dropped for first Test

The hosts will play their first Test on home soil since that infamous Cape Town Test against South Africa and Langer said his team also have a lot to prove

Handscomb was dropped 12 months ago after the Adelaide Test, losing his place to Marsh.

Paine confirmed Marcus Harris would make his Test debut and open the batting with Aaron Finch in the series opener, Australia's first home Test since Steve Smith and David Warner were banned over the Newlands ball-tampering scandal.

India captain Virat Kohli with Australia skipper Tim Paine.

Handscomb edged him out after two half-centuries last week and a century for Victoria the week before that.

"Mitch Marsh probably just hasn't been as consistent as he would like and we would like", Paine told a news conference on Wednesday.

Toddler with rare blood type sparks worldwide search for donor
Florida-based OneBlood , a nonprofit blood center, has now been conducting an worldwide search to find compatible blood donors. The only people who are likely to be a match for Zainab are people of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent, OneBlood said.


"We know the talent that Mitch has and we know that most likely at some stage in this series we will need him". There's the opportunity for him to go back and get a Shield game under his belt before the BBL start.

"I reckon he'll be treated like (uncapped opener) Marcus Harris - come in for the first time in the change-rooms, meet all the boys and like always when you come into that inner sanctum of the Baggy Green, it's like joining the brotherhood."

Khawaja, who is returning after ankle surgery, was not seen in the nets on Wednesday after his family crisis, although he is known to only take on a light workload the day before a Test. At this stage I'd say it'll be either Peter Handscomb or Mitchell Marsh who'll take the five or six position.

"The wicket over the last few years here has given enough throughout the game (to not need an allrounder)".

"And probably the fact that all our three quicks go in real fresh".

Microsoft abandons the Edge
Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers, such as Opera and other Android browsers, already dominate in browser market share. As such, many web developers optimize their sites to work best in Chrome, with Firefox and Edge more of an afterthought.


Given the hot weather, Paine admitted he will bat first if he wins the toss.

Paine noted offspinner Nathan Lyon had bowled "a mountain of overs" during Australia's recent Test series against Pakistan and was prepared to back up that effort, while Travis Head could also provide a part-time spin option.

It is also surprising that India has opted for just one spinner and that is the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin and they have not gone for the wrist spinner in Kuldeep Yadav.

The two cricketers were on their way from a practice season at the Adelaide Oval to the team hotel, which is situated close to the iconic venue which will be hosting the first Test from December 6.
