India uncertain about Aussie sledging ahead of first Test

Six-year old leg spinner added in Aussie squad for Boxing Day Test!

"I see the Indian line-up as the best in the world, if not right up there, led by Virat and I think they feed a lot off him and how he goes about things".

As preparations for the highly-anticipated first Test between India and Australia on December 6 continue, footage emerged on social media on Tuesday of Kohli practicing in the Adelaide Oval nets. With our bowling attack we're very confident and based on past year, we had quite a good template there and it worked pretty well (in the Ashes).

"We are not going to take them lightly at all. So I feel that Australia are really still the favourites".

"Last time here, we really enjoyed batting together a lot, especially at the MCG", Rahane recalled.

"This is a team sport. and it is the job of each and every bat to contribute for the team. I don't think it's going to play a massive part in this game". "He pretty much bowled from one end after the new ball and we filtered through from the other end".

The Terriers charged out of the blocks and went 1-0 up after 55 seconds - the quickest goal in the Premier League this season.

"I was able to focus on my game, I still attacked but I was completely the opposite to Virat". The Indian Fast Bowlers have been bowling superbly in the recent past, and that has been clearly witnessed when India toured South Africa and England earlier this Year.

Kohli averaged 86.50 with the bat that series, scoring 692 runs in eight innings, including four centuries.

Back in 2014, Mitchell Johnson and Virat Kohli had a go at each other during the Melbourne Test. Kohli along with Rahane stitched together a partnership of 262 for the fourth wicket and took the attack to the hosts bowling attack. "For me as a number five batsman, it is important to convert those starts into big hundreds rather than thinking about targets". "A lot of the other haven't scored too numerous runs", he added. We always talk about batting in partnerships.

"The guys (bowlers) feel that they are at the peak of their skill levels at the moment and they are looking forward to this challenge", said Kohli.
