Cheteshwar Pujara credits Indian Premiere League for producing good pacers

Rahane said Australia deserved favouritism entering the first Test due to their bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon. Ashwin played for Worcestershire earlier this year with decent results. "He also has played some country cricket in England", he said. "But we all feel really good at the moment", he said.

"We have some goals as a batting unit.I don't think there is any pressure on the batting unit". But having toiled in such unfriendly conditions, the 32-year-old has now gained enough experience of how to excel when things aren't in his favour, Pujara added.

"To be honest we play as a team", Pujara told reporters on Monday.

"When you have faced some bowlers in the past, you know what are their strengths and weaknesses. I'm sure we'll find out soon", Marsh said. "At the same time I'm trying to keep it as simple as I can".

We saw one of the greatest modern Test innings by Sachin in the Perth Test on a flyer of a WACA pitch with the Fremantle Doctor blowing fiercely and Mike Whitney, a left arm fast medium bowler built somewhat like a Sherman tank, kept hitting the deck with noticeable awesomeness.

Cricket's arbitrary line that separates what is and is acceptable conduct on the field is back in vogue, with India captain Virat Kohli attempting to mark it out while forecasting some "banter" on the eve of the four-Test series that starts on Thursday. "And we have been playing good cricket outside of India now and this is a very good opportunity for the team to perform well". He had begun the series with two centuries in the very first Test, scoring 115 and 141 to take India agonisingly close to a stunning win.

"Definitely Smith and Warner are quality players, and I will not take anything away from them".

Steve Smith remains sidelined from worldwide 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.

One Child Killed and 40 Injured In Arkansas Bus Crash
One child was reported as dying in the accident, while some 45 other people were reportedly injured in the crash. Troopers say a charter bus traveling from Texas to Memphis, Tennessee left the roadway and overturned.

Pujara said the visitors are not bothered about sledging.

"Personally I learnt a lot from last tour (in Australia)". So I think when he's playing in Australia, he knows what he has to do.

Prepare for a summer of cricket like you've never seen before.

Just like Kuldeep Yadav, the other product of the Indian Premier League, Jasprit Bumrah, gave his Test career a flying start after making debut against South Africa at Cape Town in January this year.

Paine reiterated his confidence that a four-bowler attack would be good enough to see Australia through this first Test.

Rahane cited the example of his 262-run partnership with Virat Kohli at Melbourne in 2014-15 and said that the Australian focus on the India's star batsman helps other batsmen do their job silently at the other end.

"The bowlers already had a meeting, and conceding 500 runs in a warm-up game doesn't mean anything", Cheteshwar Pujara said. Their spinners are such a vital part of their Test match success. "They know how the wicket behaves and it is all about intent as batsmen".

"We got what we wanted in the practice game and the trainer and the physio have been monitoring the workload".
