Cant Imagine khawaja being in the best of head spaces with his brother arrested on terrorism charges

Seems like both sides have an appreciation of the others bowling attacks with both opting for 6 batsmen plus the keeper

For India it's a no brainer, Vihari should be in the XI. Rohit is a flat track bully

The pitches in Australia are pretty flat

There's talk that the pitch in Adelaide will be bowler friendly

Interesting to see how different network 7s coverage is compared to channel 9. Ian Healy and co were unbareable at times

Cant believe they've picked Ishant over Bhuvi Kumar, or Umesh Yadav.

He's never been anything less than unbelievably ordinary & he'll only be anything more than that bowling at the 3 left handers in the top 8.

Ishant has had the best year of his career in 2018, 30 wickets at 21. He'd be a bit stiff if he got the chop

Fair enough he's had a good year, but does anyone truly believe he's a better bowler than Bhuvi or Yadav?

Can't see it myself.

I think Bhuvi must be unfit tbh. And ShamiYadav are fairly similar. Ishant's height adds a little variety

Yes the groundsman has said that the grass length will be the same as previous years including the day/night tests - one of the reasons for this being that he needs to keep moisture in it because temps are set to be in the high 30's (pushing 40 degrees) for at least the 1st 2 days - so it will be an interesting toss.

Regards the India team - i think it's a no brainer Vihari has to play, otherwise India have no real 5th bowler at all.

Expect India to get beaten for sure.

Asshwin will do literally nothing.

they needed Jadeja instead of him.

There's a lot of left-handers in that Australian team though.  Ashwin has a fantastic record against lefties, they could play both of them of course.
