Visitors announce 12 ahead of first test, toss-up between Rohit and Hanuma

Six-year old leg spinner added in Aussie squad for Boxing Day Test!

"Be it your body language or putting in a word or two", he said. "They got through the Ashes a year ago I thought and bowled a hell of a lot of overs", he said.

India will kick-start their Test campaign against Australia from December 6 at the Adelaide Oval. In 70 years and over 11 tours, only two drawn series, under Sunil Gavaskar in 1980-81 and with Sourav Ganguly in charge in 2003-04, is more a reflection of temperament of touring sides over the years rather than quality. So you have to respect that.

"You want to bat on days when it's 40 degrees".

Former Australia captain Michael Clarke, along with a number of ex-players, has criticised the new ethos, calling on the team to "stop worrying about being liked". "Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test allrounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter, conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the allrounder position becomes important". This is something I believe in 120 per cent, and even they have faith in themselves.

Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins were all rested for the most recent Shield round and Paine was confident they would be cherry-ripe for the first Test. "I can not tell people to not to talk about it or write about it", Kohli said. In essence, BCCI has indicated that India will be going with six batters. "I love coming to this ground, the city in general".

Albanian passport ranks 43rd in the global ranking
In equal footing with holders of Icelandic and Maltese passports, travellers can enter 162 countries without a pre-arranged visa. As well as the U.S, they are Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Norway and South Korea.

"It was a terrific day and something I will always remember". But unfortunately, it is not possible for the team to play all of them in a single game. A first class average of 39.2 and Test average of 43.6 is testament to that fact. So, from then on the connection started. Just like the great Australian cricket team of 2001 felt and we just fell short (of winning in India) and we were able to (win in) 2004. So it's about which team plays better, it's been that kind of pitch.

Virat Kohli absolutely belts them in the Adelaide nets. "I have enjoyed my cricket here", he further said.

It's the kind of vision that will send tremors down the spine of Australia's bowling attack, showcasing the best batsman in the world hitting them with insane power and flawless technique, less than 24 hours before the crucial first Test. I know England and South Africa were tougher.

It is also surprising that India has opted for just one spinner and that is the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin and they have not gone for the wrist spinner in Kuldeep Yadav.
