Brushing off any disappointment from being dropped midway through the England Test series, India opener Murali Vijay said on Saturday he will fancy his chances on the bouncier Australian wickets, which favour his backfoot game. "Ishant Sharma's last time out here he got extra bounce".

"With India's history, maybe this series will not be a fait accompli".

One of the predominant theories surrounding the touring captain is that he thrives on confrontation, but Ponting does not believe that means the Australians can't "get under his skin". We know he's good player, I've seen it first hand at Bengaluru, he's an extremely good player, but I think we've got the bowlers to do the job. In 2016, Australia and South Africa played a D/N Test in Adelaide, which last four days. Especially, when it comes to the Test format, and in the overseas, the onus on them will always be double.

On how to contain Kohli the batsman, Jones added: "Trying to find a weakness in Kohli's game is like trying to find something wrong with the Mona Lisa". The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier. Umesh made no mistake and Nielsen was on his way back. Do not give him width and length outside off-stump.

Head set out the sort of attitude he expected from an Australian team shorn of Steven Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, replying to questions about whether the team possessed enough "mongrel" by effectively stating that bite would be much more important than bark if the hosts are to emerge victorious. But what they did have was two great leaders: Allan Border and Bob Simpson.

"Just play good, hard cricket".

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