  • India vs Australia 1st Test Cheteshwar Pujara Ton Helps India Fight Back Against Australia On Day 1

Marsh's place has been taken by middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb - who has been recalled for the first time since the tour of South Africa in March and April - meaning Australia will rely on three seamers. The change in team balance was vindicated by the way the front-liners dominated Joe Root's team, and a year on the captain Tim Paine and coach Justin Langer have sought to repeat the dose against Virat Kohli's tourists.

In the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, India has been talked up a lot.

"Mitch Marsh probably just hasn't been as consistent as he would like and we would like", Paine told a news conference on Wednesday.

"We know he's good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at test level".

"We know the talent that Mitch has and we know that most likely at some stage in this series we will need him". It's time to sit back and observe as Australia seeks to rebuild its reputation in a four Test series against world cricket's powerhouse nation.

Kid Rock gets booted from grand marshal gig at Nashville Christmas parade
Nashville Mayor David Briley's office then said he was not "inclined not to participate" if Kid Rock remained grand marshal. Back in the NY studio, co-host Ainsley Earhardt doubled down on Doocy's remorse. "We don't feel that way about Joy Behar ".

"The fans have absolutely voted with their feet the last few years that we have had day-night Tests, we have been significantly up for attendances", Bradshaw said. We've obviously got a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if we need to.

Though selectors will be mindful of keeping Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins available all series, they believe their prized quicks can shoulder an extra workload while fresh.

India are the number one ranked Test team in the world right now and they will never have a better chance of winning a Test series in Australia having failed to do so in any of their previous 11 attempts.

Throw in Australia being without Smith and Warner, and it points to India starting as overwhelming favourites. "I'm sure there will be opportunities at times when we can hopefully put their spinners under pressure and try and put some big overs into their fast bowlers", Paine said.

The new side has three Vics in the top six, with with Harris's opening partner Aaron Finch and Handscomb also from Victoria. "This time around, we hope we don't disappoint our fans", Rohit said.
