Australia coach Langer fears history-chasing India are 'smelling blood'

Add to it the fact that Australia are missing Steven Smith and David Warner, and it is hard to not see why India are relaxed and positive about their chances. The bowlers know what they have to do.

Virat Kohli is more than ready to perform in the Test Series Down Under. "He also has played some country cricket in England", he said.

But Pujara said he would draw confidence from his overall performances, rather than worry about his middling record on Australian soil.

"We're pretty sure Marcus Harris will make his debut, which is very exciting for him", he said.

Statistically they remain standouts, with Smith's stratospheric batting average of 61.37 and Warner's 48.20 well above that of number three Usman Khawaja (43.83), the current side's most proficient batsman.

Having said that, Kuldeep's place in the playing XI is not assured in the upcoming Test series.

"There's obviously been a lot of talk about that and it's been a big build up to this Test match but there's a great feeling around this group.now it's about going out there and hopefully putting it together as a batting unit".

"Barring the one at Lord's (where India lost by an innings and 159 runs) most of the matches that we have lost they actually have got themselves in a winning position and squandered it". Kohli had scored 692 runs, including four hundreds, during India's previous Test tour of Australia and Hazlewood said the run-machine will once again take centrestage when the rivalry renews from December 6 here. "They know how the wicket behaves and it is all about intent as batsmen".

Smith has averaged 84.05 against India and a whopping 128.16 on home pitches, including a century in each of the four tests of the last 2014/15 series.

"Last time both of us really enjoyed that partnership at the MCG". But they're world-class bowlers and we're very prepared for them. The 24-year-old pacer has claimed 28 wickets in six Tests with an impressive economy of 2.91 per over.

Lyon has taken 203 of his 318 wickets since answering criticism of his fourth innings potency by bowling Australia to victory against India on the final day in Adelaide during 2014.

Perhaps the most controversial, and spiteful Test played between the two nations, the 2008 Sydney encounter was dubbed the "Monkeygate" affair, marred by wrong umpiring decisions and accusations of poor sportsmanship.

During the phase I played, the bowlers that I encountered, they ruled world cricket in those days. Its bowling attack is decent, but it will have to think on how to dismiss a strong Indian batting line-up to stay in the game.

Lyon is in sensational form with 20 Sheffield Shield wickets since returning as the second highest wicket-taker in the Test series Pakistan won 1-0 in the United Arab Emirates during October.

The outcry reflected just how important the pitch is to players, fans and administrators who have invested time - and lots of money - to watch a dramatic contest.Despite the enormous pressure, the curators are focused on the root of their jobs - nurturing the plants and trying to get the best out of them every time.
