India vs Australia: Numbers reveal visitors' biggest threat at the Adelaide Oval

The moment India's Prithvi Shaw rolls his ankle

The mishap happened on Day 3 of a tour match against Cricket Australia XI, and casts doubt on whether Shaw will appear for his team in the first test match of the series in Adelaide on Thursday. Unapologetically passionate about indie music and the South Australian Redbacks, Daniel's chief cricketing achievement was to dismiss Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth in the 2010 Ashes press match in Perth - a rare Australian victory that summer.

India's captain Virat Kohli, who warmed up for the first Test that begins on December 6 with a half-century against a Cricket Australia XI here, was India's highest scorer on their last Test tour to the country in 2014-15 and is likely to pose a big threat to the Australian bowlers again. "He is very confident now and whatever adjustments he has to make he has already done it".

"At times when we get too emotional, we can lose our way a little bit". "I hope they bring that, I know they do it consistently, they bowl aggressively". "I think we showed we can match it with the best in the world and we dominated that game". And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit.

"There has been so much talk in the last 10 months that everyone is sick of it", Paine said on Sunday. With the wicket, the extra grass, the thatchiness of the grass, it brings spin into play, it's spun from day one in the Shield game, we saw Popey [wrist spinner Lloyd Pope] take a seven-for on day one, so all round, Houghy's done an wonderful job. "Most of our batters are experienced enough so when we go out there we just trust our preparation and try to perform to the best of our ability". "And when you have played some bowlers in the past you always know what are their strengths and weaknesses, what to expect from them. I don't know the reason, it could be the IPL which has helped produce good fast bowlers and is benefiting the Indian Test team at the moment". "We are focussed on playing good cricket and winning the series".

India has yet to win a test series in Australia in 11 attempts and Pujara said breaking that drought was a large motivation. "We definitely want to win this series but will take one Test at a time".

"Right now, we really feel that this is where it's at for the pitch".

"Playing Australia in Australia is very tough but having said that this is India's best chance to win, especially because (Steve) Smith and (David) Warner are missing", he said.
