India versus Australia Test series: Rankings will be their on players' minds

  • Australia legend compares India star to Don Bradman- and it’s not Virat Kohli

It will be interesting to see what kind of strategies Steve Smith will resort to against the red-hot Indian side. We are playing as a team and that's been the difference. "It's now about implementing those plans for long period of time". This will be their first series in India since being whitewashed 4-0 in 2012-13.

Ashwin also boasts the record for the equal most five-wicket hauls after 45 Tests, having collected 24.

Ninth-ranked Bangladesh, which has never won a Test against India, is playing its first Test on Indian soil since gaining five-day status in 2000. "I have to bide my time", he added. He is going to be ready for me and we both have to adapt to the situation. But the biggest challenge awaits them now, the mighty Australians. There can be little doubt that the wicketkeeper Matthew Wade will have plenty to say, though the approach taken by Smith's deputy David Warner will intrigue. You have to have that mindset to look to score, but ultimately your defence is what helps you out when you are in trouble.

"I think reverse-swing is going to be incredibly important in this series as well". But recently, in the Australian summer, he has altered his path, preferring to stay back and play more off the back foot. Batting in Test cricket is about making good decisions and doing that for long periods of time. The team also spent a week with former England left-arm spinner Monty Panesar in Brisbane and thereafter engaged former India left-arm spinner Sridharan Sriram to hone its skills.

"We are trying to form a game plan but I am not telling you".

The Australian squad had a preparatory camp in Dubai for 10 days, where they simulated Indian conditions, including fourth and fifth day pitches.

Nine Republican senators urge Trump to pursue tough Russian Federation policy
Trump also does not appear to be taking part in the usual briefings presidents receive before calls with foreign leaders. Trump then paused to ask his aides what it was, before blasting it as a bad deal that favoured Russian Federation .

And above all, he comprehends that the game that has been his life since he quit secondary school early to pursue it follows an altogether different pace and rhythm in its new financial, political and fanatical heartland. It is a four match Test series that commences in a weeks time.

As such, India skipper Virat Kohli reserved generous praise for his bowlers after the match yesterday.

"As for Ashwin all our batters will have gameplans to try and counter him". He's obviously a world-class bowler and he reached 250 wickets just a couple of days ago and I think he's one of the fastest to do so. We had some hard conditions in Dubai where the ball was turning and there was some inconsistent bounce.

"India on the other hand will want to dominate, they will want to continue to show how good they are in their own backyard", said Clarke.

The bigger picture for Australia is winning the series at any cost because they know that India are tough to beat at home.
