The First Test against Australia starts on December 6 in the Adelaide Oval.

"Both (winning matches and hearts)".

The gap between the Boxing Day test in Melbourne and the final match in Sydney is also short, so there may will be a role to play for reserve seamers Peter Siddle and his uncapped Victoria team mate Chris Tremain.

The common refrain from Australia in recent years, whenever questioned about sledging and poor behaviour, was that they play aggressively and occasionally headbutt the line but will never cross it. "At the same time I'm trying to keep it as simple as I can".

It is surprising that a series between India and Australia, in Australia, is headlined by India's fast bowlers.

He added that the fitness of their three-pronged pace attack, also consisting of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins, will probably determine the course of this series. He had begun the series with two centuries in the very first Test, scoring 115 and 141 to take India agonisingly close to a stunning win. With anyone like him who likes to attain freely, he is clearly were given a large ego however there is different issues you'll do.

"We won't do anything differently". So, they are fresh and ready to go.

Opener Marcus Harris will make his worldwide debut in the longest format for Australia having plundered over 4000 runs in 68 first-class matches.

"We know the talent Mitch has. We've prepared as best we possibly can". "If they can put Virat Kohli under enough pressure. everybody in the world is a person, a human". "Still with the wickets the way they are - the pace and bounce, we are accustomed to playing here as well, so that doesn't make things easy for the Indians".

"As this series wears on, and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer, our bowlers will be a bit exhausted then the all rounder position becomes important", said Paine.

"Not really", the India vice-captain told reporters at Adelaide Oval.

Kohli has fought fire with fire in previous battles with Australia, rowing over all manner of subjects and essentially alleging a year ago that Australia were systematically cheating when it came to the Decision Review System (DRS). "Travis Head bowls some handy off spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers", he said. Partnerships are a big one for us, always bowling for the guys following you.

Kohli's personality, batting, leadership and every move are under intense scrutiny ahead of the series-opener in Adelaide.

"When you bat at number four or five, it is important to give yourself some time, first 15-20 minutes, and you should visualise the situation from dressing room".

"He went after the bowling and got to 40-50 and then built his innings". When you have to win Test matches and Test series you have to have a good bowling attack.
