India vs Australia: India is 'smelling blood' concedes Australian coach Justin Langer

India tour of Australia 2018

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect", he said.

In the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, India has been talked up a lot. "As a captain, it will be an opportunity to leave a legacy and be the first Indian team to beat Australia in Australia".

However, both Rohit and Ashwin burst out laughing after hearing the comments from the fan.

"Why not 4-0?" Rohit queried the fan who eventually went on to predict a clean sweep.

This is somewhat of a gamble to take in the first day Test at Adelaide Oval in four years, particularly if Virat Kohli calls correctly at the toss and bats first with temperatures expected to soar to 39 on Thursday and into the mid-30s the following day.

"Australia is one of the places where we come and like to play our cricket because the fans here love their cricket".

"In terms of skill, in terms of experience, in terms of how we are playing, our mindset, we definitely feel we have the ability to win a series here", said Kohli.

Clemson made Trevor Lawrence the full-time starter over Kelly Bryant , while Ian Book replaced Brandon Wimbush for Notre Dame . Throughout their history, the Tide have appeared in 68 bowl games, including seven national championship games .


"He's shown that over the last few years, he bowled a mountain of overs in the UAE and our quicks are fresh so we can cover that".

Marsh will play in WA's Shield game against Victoria starting Friday at the MCG.

"We're obviously very disappointed that the trains won't be running on Saturday and Sunday.But there has been a lot of work that has been done in order to provide substitute bus services and we're working very closely with the government to ensure that we can provide the best service that we possibly can. Numerous players are coming here for the second or the third time, so we have got a reasonable chance for playing good cricket and make the fans enjoy the tour", the premier off-spinner added. The visitors, just like the hosts, are going in with a four-man bowling attack.

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.

Handscomb was dropped 12 months ago after the Adelaide Test, losing his place to Marsh. "Every side would like to have a fast-bowling all-rounder", he told reporters at Adelaide Oval on Wednesday.

Notably, the Bharat Army welcomed the Indian team upon their arrival at the city's airport on Monday.
