Vijay hits century but India's bowlers struggle

Vijay hits century but India's bowlers struggle

The teams meet in the first of four Tests at Adelaide from Thursday in the wake of a scathing review into the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa which criticised Australian cricketers for "playing the mongrel" against opponents.

Virat Kohli can be "rattled" and Australia should try to get under his skin rather than sitting back and be bullied by the Indian captain, said former skipper Ricky Ponting.

"Barring the one at Lord's (where India lost by an innings and 159 runs) most of the matches that we have lost they actually have got themselves in a winning position and squandered it. Our bowlers know what they have to do. they know what line and lengths to bowl in Australia". "So it will help me in this series", he said. Then the seam kind of flattens and fast bowlers may not find zip off the pitch. And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit.

The discussion veers to India's best opening pairs in Australia: Sunil Gavaskar-Chetan Chauhan, Gavaskar-Kris Srikkanth and Virender Sehwag-Aakash Chopra, and Tendulkar responds.

"But it will be a fresh start and I don't want to focus too much on what I have done in the past, I would like to stay in the present", he said. "I am confident but at the same time I would also like to respect the opposition".

"Being the number one Test team, we always look to win each and every series, and this is no different".

"We had a fantastic series against India, closer than the margin suggests", said Gower, one of the leading Test batsmen of his era, during the inaugural Ranji Memorial Public Conversation on Cricket in London. We would like to perform well and start off well. So he should get the full quota of matches in the series.

"It doesn't mean we'll be the nicest team in the world to play against by any stretch of the imagination". "From my perspective, it's hard to imagine that the first Test of the series is not at Gabba", Watson told CricketNext from Sharjah where he captained the Sindhis in the T10 League that culminated in Sharjah on Sunday night. We know he's good player, I've seen it first hand at Bengaluru, he's an extremely good player, but I think we've got the bowlers to do the job.

"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".
