Virat Kohli can not help but laugh after dismissing Harry Nielsen

'You don't have to say anything to have mongrel' - Travis Head - ESPN

Their record in Australia, which starts with a crushing series loss to Don Bradman's side in 1948, is five wins from 44 Tests. "I hope they bring that, I know they do it consistently, they bowl aggressively".

India and Australia are likely to be greeted by a green pitch at the Adelaide Oval for the first Test of the four-match series starting Thursday, with the curator saying he has no intentions of cutting the thick cover of grass.

While India's attack is much improved from last time, they will have to step up in a major way to compete with Australia.

"With India's history, maybe this series will not be a fait accompli". So who is the danger man for Australia?

"But that again boils down to the surfaces that you get to play".

Well, opening batsmen will always play a massive role in the game of cricket.

The Australian players' on-field behaviour has been in focus in wake of the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. Eddings got the job after predecessor David Peever was forced to step aside having lost the support of key states NSW and Victoria.

Quake Aftershocks Rattle Alaska, Fray Nerves
A strong aftershock, measuring magnitude-5.7 shook the earth soon after and a tsunami warning was briefly issued for some areas. Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz says the city is on the road to returning to normal a day after a magnitude 7.0 quake struck.

"Do not talk or provoke him".

Assistant editor Daniel Brettig had been a journalist for eight years when he joined ESPNcricinfo, but his fascination with cricket dates back to the early 1990s, when his dad helped him sneak into the family lounge room to watch the end of day-night World Series matches well past bedtime.

On how to contain Kohli the batsman, Jones added: "Trying to find a weakness in Kohli's game is like trying to find something wrong with the Mona Lisa".

"At times when we get too emotional, we can lose our way a little bit". Umesh made no mistake and Nielsen was on his way back. "Slips and gully stay on high alert". Tours by India boost opponents' bank balances, allowing home boards to sell TV rights to the lucrative subcontinental market. Australia had a very inexperienced team.

"The players didn't worry about the opposition too much, they just looked within and anxious about themselves".

They also boast a batting order full of proven performers.

Despite his warnings, Paine said he was as keen as anyone for the team to play to their strengths, and if that meant some sledging to give them an edge then so be it.
