Perth Curator unveils green cover for the second Test — Twitter Reactions

India edge defiant Australia by 31 runs in test opener

"Allan Border used to say there's more time in Test cricket than you'll ever imagine. you can bat for so much time", Cricket Australia's official website quoted Langer having told his players. Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin been not been included in the squad due to injuries.

The 50-run partnership between Pat Cummins and Travis Head in the first innings was Australia's largest of the match.

The visitors went 1-0 in the four-Test series after a tense, 31-run win in Adelaide earlier this week - their first victory in Australia in a decade.

"And there is no excuse for anyone not to be at their best for the first Test of a summer". Now, Indian captain Virat Kohli, who has the advantage of a great bunch of fast bowlers, said that this prospect does not scare him, but it is really an exciting opportunity.

Starc appeared to be struggling with footholes in his run-up, but Johnson opined that the Aussie's body language was down. Although he scored an important 44 in the second innings in Adelaide, he was out playing loose shots outside off in both innings.

However, Vaughan, who is in Australia as a commentator, feels that a green pitch may not be the best idea considering the quality of the fast bowlers India possess.

Australian captain Tim Paine expect India to "come really hard" in 2nd test match

Shaw is still recovering from his left ankle injury he picked up during the practice game in Sydney.

Spin-bowling allrounder Hanuma Vihari is tipped to replace Rohit, who had already been on shaky ground after twin batting failures in Adelaide.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday confirmed the absence of Ravichandran Ashwin, Rohit Sharma and Prithvi Shaw. The first day of the match is expected to be the hottest, with the temperature peaking at 36C. The 32-year-old bowled 86.5 overs - the most he has bowled in a single Test match.

But the man known as "Gazza" to his teammates has become much more than a sum of his statistics, and seems to add a new string to his bow every season.

"I went and watched a bit of the game, NSW versus WA".

"We are definitely confident of the percentage of chances we have and we want to build on that", said Kohli before the injury problems were announced. We know what to expect on a pitch like this and as I said on a lively wicket where there is grass on the pitch and the surface being hard, you are as much as in the game as the opposition.
