" We don't wait to figure out what the condition of the pitch is going to be, we got to read it really early and alter our games accordingly which I think we failed to do in the last tours (SA and Eng). When we have done it we have won games but we will have to do it for longer periods to be able to win series which is our goal. We don't want to be a side that plays exciting cricket one Test match. We want to be a consistent side and for that we need to adapt quicker than we have in the past." - Virat Kohli, India captain.

Virat Kohli -
"We will bat first, looks like a nice hard wicket with a nice covering of grass. Runs on the board will be handy. Evey tour is an opportunity, it's a difficult challenge in Australia. We are looking forward to a challenging series, I love playing here in Adelaide, the wicket is good and the stadium is great. Rohit Sharma will bat at six, he can bat well with tail, has the shots on these kind of wickets"

Tim Paine -
"We would have batted as well, some damp spots and we will look to make the best of that. Nice to start in Adelaide, we will look to do our best. We think 3 pacers and Nathan will do the job, they are pretty fresh and we have a all-round attack. We expect the batsmen to stand-up, we have good players who have done well domestically over the past five-six years

Come on Waugh , this is not two evenly matched sides.
Australia is mediocre at the moment.

Vijay averages only 39.9 after 60 tests.
I thought he is much better than that.

Pat Cummins to Kohli, out Caught by Khawaja!! Stunning catch from Khawaja and India fall further into the mire. Another batsman falls to the drive and India are three down now. But this is a stupendous catch at gully, full and wide of off, looking to make Kohli drive. He obliged, went with hard hands and the edge flew to the left of Khawaja. It was past him and it was travelling at a rate of knots, the Australian number three flew to his left and came up with a stunner. A catch that could win the match for Australia. Kohli c Khawaja b Pat Cummins 3(16)

Kohli c Khawaja b Pat Cummins 3(16)


Spiderman Khawaja....what a catch !!!

Lyon to Rahane, 1 run, just past FSL! A drop indeed. Marcus Harris, the debutant. Rahane shimmed down a touch and had to adjust on the clip off his pads, the ball zipped off the pitch and rushed onto him to smash the splice, it went flying to the left of FSL and all Harris could manage was a fingertip on that. Another day

Lyon to Rahane, SIX, enough of block dance! Rahane uses his feet, gets closer to the pitch of the delivery and clubs Nathan Lyon over mid-wicket. That's a statement and a half from Jinks who's had a bit of history with Lyon (Refer the stat below at the start of this over)
