"Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test allrounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter, conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the allrounder position becomes important".

After all the talk, sledges, intent, and plenty of planning, the Test series between India and Australia is set to begin. Moreover, Australia are without the services of Steve Smith and David Warner, making India start as overwhelming favourites. Even Australia coach Justin Langer believes India are smelling blood. "This being the first Test we think they'll do the job". "As a captain, it will be an opportunity to leave a legacy and be the first Indian team to beat Australia in Australia". The former went on to ask the fan why he didn't predict a 4-0 win.

"We have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers", Paine said. My leading run scorer for the series is Shaun Marsh or Virat Kohli and my leading wicket takers are Pat Cummins or Nathan Lyon. We couldn't really win a Test match but we came very close. "We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well", Langer said.

It was a surprise as Rohit Sharma and Hanuma Vihari both were included in the squad, which also means that in all probability Rohit will open the batting with Murali Vijay. The visitors, just like the hosts, are going in with a four-man bowling attack.

Meanwhile, fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who will be missing from action in Adelaide, met Bharat Army - a group of Indian travelling fans, at the Adelaide Oval and had a brief interaction with them.
