India's middle order also looks in good form with Cheteshwar Pujara, Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari all making half-centuries in the CA XI game.

The good news, however, is that his performances away from home have left behind some subtle clues that can increase Australia's chances of success. "Whatever batsmen we have, all of them have so much ability that every one of them can single-handedly turn any game", Kohli told reporters on the eve of India's first rubber here. Worse, they aren't sure about their brand of cricket. "We do not expect guys to just come in and bowl and walk back, obviously there are going to be times when you have to put the batsmen under pressure", he said.

Cummins, who made a sensational comeback after a long lay-off owing to injury, has become an integral part of the Aussie attack, and on the bouncy, seaming wickets down under he will pose quite a challenge to the Indian batsmen. Hardly has a visiting team started favourites ahead of a series in Australia, across any format. Archie also said that he wants to get Indian skipper Virat Kohli out.

Kohli felt that his bowling arsenal is in fine fettle.

The onus will be once again on Virat Kohli to guide the team through another overseas Test series.

"Mitchell Johnson was really going after Virat Kohli and I was at the other end playing my game".

"With a cricket wicket, we're actually nearly killing the grass". Alas! It was not to be. Most of our batters are experienced enough.

It should be noted that India are one of only two Full Member nations - the other being Bangladesh - to have not played a day-night Test at worldwide level. I'm sensing India feel that. "From what I've watched over the years, he seems to trouble him the most". This was by none other than Dennis Lillee. "But at the same time I would like to respect the opposition".

Ashwin and batsman Rohit Sharma were the only India players to work out in the Adelaide Oval nets on Monday as the tourists enjoyed an unexpected rest day. Two main bowlers who could make a difference had spent a sleepless night.

Curator Damien Hough has promised to leave some grass on the pitch for the series opener between India and Australia even though it will be a day affair, unlike the three day-night Tests played in Adelaide in the past three seasons.

The live telecast of the match will start at 5:30 AM on December 6 (Thursday). Outplayed for 89 days, Team India was to bounce back to share the honours. So I think it's even more important to know that you have performed in a place and you know how to get runs there. "They got through the Ashes previous year I thought and bowled a hell of a lot of overs". He hit the widening cracks in 7-27 on the final day to leave India wrecked at 4-0.

Some will nurse a rare feeling of apprehension having read reports about the country's worst ever batting lineup set to take on an Indian team with a rare surfeit of quality pacemen. What we have now is more than great expectations.
