The First Test against Australia starts on December 6 in the Adelaide Oval. But Ponting believes left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who starred in the recent T20 series against Australia, could give them their best chance at consistently taking wickets.

Ashwin has taken 21 wickets at an average of 54.71 in six previous tests in Australia, a return at odds with his overall test record of 336 wickets at 25.44. Steve Smith remains sidelined from global 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.

Virat Kohli's sledge protege Cheteshwar Pujara says India won't change its aggressive mindset or panic at ongoing bowling woes punctuating 70 years without series success in Australia. In the 2014-15 series, when he made 692 runs in eight innings, including four centuries, ESPNcricinfo data logged him facing 142 deliveries that were of a full length.

Mostly green and often downtrodden, the humble grass on which the highly-anticipated Australia-India Tests will be played doesn't normally attract as many headlines as superstars Virat Kohli and Mitchell Starc.

For a nation that once boasted a batting production line the envy of the world, Australia's reduced circumstances are nearly unfathomable for past generations. "There's always a good coverage of grass here in Adelaide and it offers a bit with the new ball, but there's also a lot of runs to be had out there", he said about the toss. So I think it'll be a good contest.

Of late, it has become a tradition to play a Day/Night Test match at Adelaide.

Willbrandt says the flu starts with a rapid onset of fever, along with a runny nose, watery eyes, and body aches. Influenza antiviral drugs can be a second line of defense for treatment of some who get sick with the flu.

"I do think he should be there".

The world-famous MCG was slammed by critics and received an official "poor" rating from the International Cricket Council - the first time for an Australian pitch - after the Ashes Boxing Day Test nearly a year ago.

The 30-year-old also spoke on the Indian batting department and said most of the batsmen are experienced enough to handle the aussie bowling attack.

Bumrah looked in good rhythm as he bowled Coleman with a well-aimed yorker off his seventh delivery. Most of our batters are experienced enough.

The Melbourne triumph of 1980-81 is still worth telling as one of India's great wins in Australia.

"And when we are out there batting, it's about batting as a unit".

"So playing and performing well against them will help me in this series".
