Pujara backs Ashwin to succeed in Australian conditions

Australia vs India Josh Hazlewood plans Virat Kohli

"If we can make some early inroads in this first Test, it's always crucial and the first innings".

The scandal's impact has not been limited to the nuts and bolts of putting an innings together, however, and the Australians have been forced to take a long, hard look at how they play the game. Be it Sri Lanka great Muttiah Muralitharan, England's Graeme Swann, India's Harbhajan Singh - all have struggled to replicate their success when playing in a Test in Australian conditions.

Ashwin has taken 21 wickets at an average of 54.71 in six previous tests in Australia, a return at odds with his overall test record of 336 wickets at 25.44.

Tom Brady jokes about retiring after hitting major rushing milestone
Never known for his scrambling abilities, Brady hit the plateau on a five-yard burst in the first quarter. After all, that's the goal of Tom Brady & Co. every time it takes the field.


"You see their bowling attack, they've got a really good bowling attack, and I think you need that to win test matches".

Speaking of team combination, India made a decision to include Hanuma Vihari and Rohit Sharma in their 12-man squad for the first Test with R Ashwin being the lone spinner. And to sustain mental strength across a full tour of Australia with all that sledging and 'aggro was a challenge that has proved beyond any Indian team in history. However, he claimed four big wickets in Warner, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb and Glenn Maxwell in Dharamsala when Australia toured India in 2017.

Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is expecting a strong showing from R Ashwin in the upcoming Test series against Australia as he feels the senior off-spinner has added to his bag of tricks with a few technical adjustments.

Finch is set to open the batting in Australia's four-Test series opener against India, which starts on Thursday. The Last Time, He scored 4 Centuries in the Test Series against Australia in 2014-15 Down Under. The Indian staff, which is already busy prepping for the high-voltage Take a look at sequence in Australia, will play 3 One-day Internationals in opposition to Australia in January. As for sledging, I can not say what happens when we start off playing the first Test. When the Test starts, if it happens, it happens; we are not very focussed on it. Virat Kohli on his own can not win you matches all the time. India's death-overs specialist is expected to play a big role in the series ahead as he impressed one and all with a stunning yorker to dismiss tail-ender Jackson Coleman in the four-day practice match in Sydney.

While talking about the city, Kohli said that every cricketer has a favorite ground away from home and for him that ground is Adelaide also because he scored his first test there.

Kohli leads a side bristling with brilliant batting talent, not least his own, but that has also been true of numerous 11 previous Indian touring parties that have left Australia empty-handed over the last 70 years.
