India want wins to preserve Test cricket

Brad Hodge after his Test double-ton

Australia were 316 in arrears when the match was called off, leaving India with a 2-1 triumph after wins in Adelaide and Melbourne.

India's best bowler previous year and Kohli's trump card for providing him with breakthroughs, the unorthodox Kuldeep would again be very important.

Australia's trio of pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins were also criticised by Vaughan, who said they did not offer enough variety or consistency to exploit pitch conditions in England. Australia won in Perth.

Fresh from their 2-1 series defeat of Australia this summer, India will return to defend the Border Gavaskar trophy in just two summers time as part of a reworked ICC Future Tours Program. "But throughout the series, more often than not, when those big moments came up, Virat has scored runs, Pujara has scored runs, Bumrah has bowled a great spell and we couldn't quite get through those moments", he said. We've been working really hard to win a series overseas. "Best wishes for the various games ahead", he added. It may happen in one Test but not over the course of a five-match series. Paine felt Indian batsmen stepping up and scoring runs at crucial junctures in the series is something their batsmen can learn from. They are dictating terms now which is the most fantastic thing you can ask for from your bowlers'.

Aside from the three MCU films arriving in 2019, the next phase of the blockbuster franchise remains a mystery. Captain Marvel won't be the only Marvel Studios solo adventure that fans will be getting in 2019.

"It is a young bunch of guys and to have that belief to keep striving for excellence on a daily basis and to get a reward like this we definitely have to be happy". The group of bowlers we have in this team have been fantastic for quite a while now. The southpaw would be raring to go after being left out of the Test squad against Australia. The captain was particularly impressed with the way the inexperienced players like Marcus Harris and Travis Head, at the Test level, strung in a few performances. "We have faith in them going forward", he said.

"I see this series as a stepping stone for this team to inspire the next lot of Test cricketers to be passionate about Test cricket firstly", Kohli said.

"We just worked on rectifying the mistakes".

"To promote that we have to play the kind of cricket we have played here".
