Australia ready for 'verbal battles' in India Test series

The Indians are now on a 19-match unbeaten streak and have won their last six Test series.

"I have a game plan for him - I have to bat against his strength". I think this team has come a long way.

"So hopefully in the first couple of Tests we can create that doubt and get him wondering about his technique".

"I'm happy where everything is at, at the moment".

"Obviously this is going to be a very hard tour and I am excited by that challenge". It's a great challenge to play here in India.

Rather than being too spin-friendly, as is the common concern over Indian pitches, the surfaces in that series against England were perhaps too amenable to batting. Before the series against South Africa, Australia had lost 3-0 to Sri Lanka.

Smith said he also needed to maintain a fine balance between attack and defence to find success in India. "So, a lot of similarities (from Sri Lanka) to India".

They haven't scored enough runs to give their bowlers, who might ultimately rely more on Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood's pace and reverse swing, a chance to stay in the grind. The quality of our spinners allows our fast bowlers to attack because of the way the spinners bowl and contain runs. He's a big player for India along with the others.

The Australian cricket team might have got some good exercise while boarding their own bags onto the team bus, but the incident was unfortunate and the authorities should be more responsible and ensure that such an event does not take place again in the future. Panchal has been a lynchpin of every side that he has played so far, and Starc will not mind having a duel with one of the most successful Indian batsman (in the domestic season) on the block early on in the contest. The challenge of slow, turning tracks has exposed a number of shortcomings among Australia's batsmen, who have found their traditional belligerent response to adversity cuts no mustard against spinners of India's quality.

Clarke called for patience to be shown to the players in conditions alien to what they have experienced at home.

Asked about the kind of challenges that Steve Smith will face, Hussey said that despite Indians being champion players of spin bowling, the Australian captain need to be patient with spinners Nathan Lyon and Steve O'Keefe. There can be little doubt that the wicketkeeper Matthew Wade will have plenty to say, though the approach taken by Smith's deputy David Warner will intrigue. "As selectors, all they can really do is pick who they feel are the best players and then give them the opportunity, and I think that's what they've done", he said. Guys want to get into those battles verbally, if they get the best out of them, and then go for it.

"It's about making sure they have the right mindset as individuals to go out and succeed".
