India's Task Cut Out Against Formidable Australian Pace Attack

India's Task Cut Out Against Formidable Australian Pace Attack

Steve Smith remains sidelined from worldwide cricket along with David Warner by the ban he received for his part in the infamous events in South Africa in March, when the ball-tampering scandal rocked the Australian game to its foundations.

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.

"As this series wears on, and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer, our bowlers will be a bit exhausted then the all rounder position becomes important", said Paine.

"They've played a lot at home since we played them last in Australia".

"I always say he is a clever bowler, he reads the batsmen really well.I think he has made a lot of changes". He has made some adjustments which have helped him and he has also played some county cricket and played enough cricket in England which are different conditions, overseas, and obviously there's not much help for the spinner.

Nathan Lyon returns to his spiritual cricket home at the peak of powers with bitter-sweet memories of a career defining performance against India in the Phillip Hughes Test. It will be Kuldeep's maiden tour to Australia.

"We have been playing good cricket outside India now and this is a very good opportunity for the team to perform well", he said.

‘BIG leap forward,’ says Donald Trump on US-China relations
Later that month, China reduced the tariff rate to 15 percent on all imported vehicles while raising it for US cars to 40 percent. The government also has promised to ease limits on foreign ownership of automakers, insurance ventures and other companies.

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

Archie, who bowls leg spin, will also meet up with the team on Tuesday ahead of the Adelaide Test match. Fox Cricket, the broadcasters of the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, ran a promo exclusively focusing on "King" Kohli in Australia. Overall, he has 20 wickets to his name at an average of 62.15 on quick Australian pitches. I think we have a well-balanced bowling attack and some strong batsmen, which will mean that we will be very competitive in what promises to be a challenging series.

That charm offensive has been ridiculed and criticised, with South Africa captain Faf du Plessis memorably describing Aaron Finch's team as "tame" during the recent ODI series. The 24-year-old pacer has claimed 28 wickets in six Tests with an impressive economy of 2.91 per over.

There are plenty of reasons to be confident Finch is up to being a Test opener in Australia.

The new-ball bowlers Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ishant Sharma worked up intense pace in the nets and troubled the likes of KL Rahul and Murali Vijay. 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.

Lyon has taken 203 of his 318 wickets since answering criticism of his fourth innings potency by bowling Australia to victory against India on the final day in Adelaide during 2014.
