If you're a cricket fan, this is one to watch. India had misplaced their first two encounters however they returned to salvage a draw within the ultimate two clashes.

Australia and India have been playing Test cricket against each other since 1947 and they renew their rivalry in Adelaide on Thursday. Kohli is just everywhere. The Last Time, He scored 4 Centuries in the Test Series against Australia in 2014-15 Down Under. The king is coming, ' it said.

Left-handed Australian batsman Travis Head is looking to pick the brains of his junior state teammate Harry Nielsen to tackle formidable off-spinner R Ashwin during the opening Test against India starting on December 6.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who bowls with the red cherry at the start of the match, might face a competition with Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami to make his space in the playing XI for Australia Tests. Even as the crescendo has built, India have gone about their business as calmly as is possible.

Batting great VVS Laxman on Tuesday recollected how he wanted the Indian team to return home immediately after the infamous monkey-gate scandal at Sydney in 2007-08.

Ashwin managed 12 wickets to Lyon's series-high 23 as Michael Clarke's side claimed a 2-0 victory. In normal circumstances, the very same Australian media would be out targeting Kohli & co, trying to play mind games against the visitors. Ashwin played for Worcestershire earlier this year with decent results.

"There's much more experience and the guys are fitter than they were last time they came here (in 2014)", Kohli said of his pace battery. But after the ball-tampering bans on Steve Smith and David Warner, many former cricketers have spoken about bringing a change in Australia's team culture.

After a hesitant start in Australia - his average here is 54 runs per wicket - he is improving every year and at the pinnacle of his powers.

"Not really", the India vice-captain told reporters at Adelaide Oval.

India's home form remains strong, they last lost a Test series at home in 2012, but Kohli's hopes of winning more series on foreign soil have been dashed with defeats in South Africa and England this year due to a lack of batting support.

"A bit of mayo on that from Finchy", Mitchell Marsh said.

Despite scoring a century for Sheffield Shield side Western Australia in the lead-up, Marsh pays the price for a poor tour of the United Arab Emirates where he managed 30 runs from four innings with the bat against Pakistan and two wickets at the cost of nearly 100 runs with the ball.

"We know the talent Mitch has".

"We know he is good enough to be a genuine all rounder at Test level". "The quicks are going to have to bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job in any conditions".
