I wanted Indian team to return home after Sydney Test: Laxman

India vs Australia 2018 Virat Kohli Comes on to Bowl Against Cricket Australia XI Rishabh Pant Asks Spin or Pace? | WATCH

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh both feels that if the Indian openers don't score runs consistently then winning its maiden Test series in Australia will be a tough ask for the team. However, the Aussies seemed to have found a way to stop the run-machine when they toured India in 2017 when Kohli manged just 46 runs during a four-Test series.

Ashwin's overall record in Australia is a less-than-flattering 21 wickets at 54.71, but Pujara hinted that he has some new tricks up his sleeve.

"It is going to be no different for them; they are going to see at times if they can attack Lyon and get on top of him...so it is going to be a real chess match in that regard", he said. "I can't describe what it is, not in front of the media. I can't describe what it is.But he has made some adjustments which has helped him", Pujara said. The world's top-ranked Test batsman, when facing Siddle, plays a false shot at 23.1 per cent of deliveries - more than against any other member of this Australia team. "As a bowling unit we are very confident and the bowlers will stick to their basics". "And whatever adjustments he had to make, he has already done it". Australia were 24-3 against a target of 143 on a wearing pitch and a fine final day in the reckoning with Australia leading 1-0 after India had been routed in Sydney and drew in Adelaide. The Indian skipper was in phenomenal touch last time his side toured Australia and the hosts don't have Steve Smith to counter his weight of runs this time.

"We got what we wanted in the practice game and the trainer and the physio has been monitoring the workload", Pujara said.

Giuliani Gets Mad At Twitter, Doesn't Seem To Understand How It Works
A typographical error in a tweet written by President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani has linked to an anti-Trump prank. If someone tweets out a valid URL, Twitter automatically converts it into a hyperlink.

For Tim Paine's team, however, Thursday's opening delivery of the first test against India marks the start of a long summer job to win back the hearts of a sceptical public.

Ashwin took 2-122 against the Cricket Australia XI but Pujara cautioned against reading too much into his or India's performance. "Whatever batsmen we have, all of them have so much ability that every one of them can single-handedly turn any game", Kohli said.

"You need not look at the numbers all the time. the experience of playing in Australia is going to play a huge role".

"I think a bit of banter there is not harmful at all".

Redskins considered Colin Kaepernick in latest quarterback search
In relief, Sanchez completed 13 passes for 100 yards, was sacked twice, and threw an interception with no touchdowns. Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.

Australia took a 1-0 lead into this fiery Bangalore Test previous year and when Nathan Lyon took 8-50 to bamboozle the Indian batsmen for 189, it looked like the tourists would go 2-0 up.

It would be presumptuous to believe that India are favourites to win this series, but in the absence of David Warner and Steven Smith the buzz is indeed that India can pull off a win.

"In India we have been doing really well but whenever we travel overseas there is always an extra motivation to do well".

"We have been playing good cricket outside India now and this is a very good opportunity for the team to perform well", he said.
