India's pace hype faces stern Australia test

India vs Australia 2018 Virat Kohli Comes on to Bowl Against Cricket Australia XI Rishabh Pant Asks Spin or Pace? | WATCH

Hazlewood felt that the contest between his team and India would be an "even contest" despite the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner.

When asked about targeting India's lone spinner R Ashwin in this match, he replied the game-plan is going to be quite similar for even the Indian batsmen.

"In the last few years, we have produced some quality fast bowlers".

"Obviously when you come to conditions like South Africa, Australia, England, you need pace bowlers and in the past they might have had one or two, but now they've got three or four". He has made some adjustments which have helped him. "I don't think it's going to play a massive part in this game".

The row saw the India threaten to pull out of the tour and on appeal the ban was lifted and the charge downgraded to abusive language, leaving relations between the teams tense.

Having said that, Kuldeep's place in the playing XI is not assured in the upcoming Test series.

The Australian squad will begin their preparations in earnest on Monday at training at Adelaide Oval for the series-opener starting on Thursday. Overall, he has 20 wickets to his name at an average of 62.15 on quick Australian pitches.

Without them, India could have a golden opportunity to break their series drought. He's a world-class bowler, but I think we've got some world-class batters as well. In South Africa, Johannesburg match was really crucial for me. The 24-year-old pacer has claimed 28 wickets in six Tests with an impressive economy of 2.91 per over.

Data from CricViz has found that Kohli has faced 99 of these balls from seamers away from home since his last Test tour of Australia in 2014-15.

In the practice game in Sydney last week, Cricket Australia XI scored 544 runs against India's bowling attack but Pujara said it was not a matter of concern. A Video on Social Media showed Mohammed Shami bowling to his Captain Virat Kohli.

The loss of two of the finest batsmen in the world would gut any batting order and Australia have indeed shown the brittleness that comes with inexperience and lack of confidence over their last few worldwide outings. With the help of his ability to swing the ball both ways and occasional knuckle balls, Bhuvneshwar has picked up 63 wickets in 21 Test matches so far.

Ricky Ponting's men won by 122 runs for a record-breaking 16th consecutive Test victory with just seven balls remaining in a breathless finish after part-time spinner Michael Clarke took three wickets in five deliveries.

Rahane said that irrespective of whether there is another specialist batsman after him or not, his role in the side is to bat as long as possible and convert his starts/half-centuries into tall scores.
