India uncertain about Aussie sledging ahead of first Test

Green pitch likely to greet India and Australia for first Test at Adelaide Oval

"I'd like to see a little bit of grass left on them for the first two and then I think Australian can put the series to bed after two Tests", he added.

Australia are exploring a data-driven, high-risk, high-reward tactic to negate Virat Kohli in the upcoming four-Test series that begins in Adelaide on Thursday. "They have got some really good batsmen, they have got a very good all-round team", he said. In the eight Tests Kohli has played away from home this year, in South Africa and England, he has been dismissed significantly more often when bowlers have pitched the ball up. "I think the bowlers when they compete, and they're fierce and aggressive, I think they have that", he said in Adelaide.

The fans of Australian cricket team have also had their share of putting the visitors off balance by their insults in the past.

The most prolific run-scorer in cricket history has a glittering record in Australia. "Our bowlers know what they have to do. they know what line and lengths to bowl in Australia".

Central to that contest will be India's captain Virat Kohli, whom Head has seen up close as a team-mate in the IPL.

"And we can get them all on song and build pressure on him for a period of time then he's like the rest of us - he's human and he makes mistakes". "We definitely want to win the series, but one test match at a time". As an 18-year-old, Tendulkar won the approving nod and admiration of the Australian cricket fraternity when he scored an unconquered 148 in the first innings of the Sydney Test and 114 in the first innings of the Perth Test - both on his debut tour of Down Under in 1991-92. The third Test at the venue ended in the first session on day five.

"There has been so much talk in the last 10 months that everyone is sick of it", he said ahead of Australia's first home Test since "sandpapergate", where Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft tried to alter the ball in South Africa.

Pacemen Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma all struggled with their consistency, while Ashwin returned 1-63 from 24 overs.

"Right now, we really feel that this is where it's at for the pitch".

Ponting also favoured his countrymen to win the four-match series 2-1 but also tipped Khawaja to be the leading run-scorer and player of the series.

"But that again boils down to the surfaces that you get to play".
