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. In the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, the Aussie batting looks vulnerable to a very potent Indian seam attack - arguably the best India has put together in a long time. "So we'll be looking to replicate that and test it against one of the best batting orders in the world". He also picked up the wicket of centurion Harry Nielsen with his medium pace.
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". "Hopefully, we can carry that momentum forward into the first Test", Vijay said.
However, as far as the history is concerned, Australia is well on top.
Central to that contest will be India's captain Virat Kohli, whom Head has seen up close as a team-mate in the IPL. "The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier", Hough told The Weekend Australian.
"Words are sometimes cheap, it's how they bowl, and their actions".

"You don't get anything easy; they'll test us out over the next couple of days, which will be good, then you'll walk out into the middle knowing you've prepared well", he said. The two Shield games here have shown that if batters get in they can get runs. "If you can get through these (bowlers), you can get through anyone in the world".
