Kohli eager to resume Adelaide love affair

Ricky Ponting

Warne's scathing assessment came midway through the first Test of Australia's series against Pakistan - which they would go on to draw, following a defiant century to Usman Khawaja and stoic supporting roles from Travis Head and Tim Paine.

The basic premise of the theory put forward by Jones is that Kohli is most vulnerable to fuller deliveries that deviate in towards the right-hander off the seam.

"It's hard work. You don't get anything easy. If we can get on top of them early, hopefully that will filter through the rest of the Test". "It's about what conditions suit, with a player of that calibre you need a few options", he said.

"Mitchell Johnson definitely rattled him a few times with some good, hostile bowling and some good, hostile body language around him". We are going to go about it the same way we did over there, it's just going to be tactically slightly different. They're in our backyard. At least one game of the Test series in Australia was performed with a pink ball.

Kohli has fought fire with fire in previous battles with Australia, rowing over all manner of subjects and essentially alleging a year ago that Australia were systematically cheating when it came to the Decision Review System (DRS). Kohli likes the pressure because he's been there; he's an experienced guy that's had a lot of success.

While he averages an imposing 55.05 against the Aussies, in Australia he averages only 33.5 and is yet to score a Test ton.

WATCH: Virat Kohli Plays a Deadly Bouncer from Mohammed Shami

Talking about the Indian bowling attack, former Australian Test skipper pointed out that visitors have historically relied on their spinners to win the format. Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma bowled the bulk of the overs among pacers. Try as they might, Team India was never able to pull off a series victory Down Under. "So it is important not to focus on criticism or even on people who appreciate", said Rahane. Ashwin's record in Australia is not great; he doesn't turn the ball in Australia anywhere near what he does anywhere else in the world.

But the superstar added he expects that in every Test, suggesting this summer will be played in better spirits than recent heated Border-Gavaskar contests.

"I like the all-rounder in the team, but I don't think Mitch Marsh has bowled enough", Harris told SEN.

Of late, it has become a tradition to play a Day/Night Test match at Adelaide.

"I see the Indian line-up as the best in the world, if not right up there, led by Virat and I think they feed a lot off him and how he goes about things", said Hazlewood as quoted by Sportstar Live.

South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) chief executive Keith Bradshaw has claimed that ticket sales for the first Test between Indian and Australia at the Adelaide Oval have "suffered" following the refusal of hosts to play a day-night match at the venue.
