India suffered a huge blow ahead of the Test with young opener Prithvi Shaw ruled out after suffering ankle ligament damage during their final warm-up game against a Cricket Australia XI.

"Of course, the last time we were here, we had a very close series".

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect", he said.

Paine confirmed Marcus Harris would make his Test debut and open the batting with Aaron Finch in the series opener, Australia's first home Test since Steve Smith and David Warner were banned over the Newlands ball-tampering scandal. Especially in this kind of situation where two of their best batsman have scored literally 50 percent of their runs for Australia are not a part of the playing eleven and they haven't really done well since they have left Test cricket.

With Australia in turmoil, India are "smelling blood" but Virat Kohli's men would also be under great pressure to perform during the four-Test series starting here Thursday, coach Justin Langer said Wednesday.

"We know the talent Mitch has and we know he is good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at Test level".

Croatia took a 2-0 lead in the Davis Cup final
It was the last final in the traditional format before a radical but controversial reorganisation of the venerable competition. Former US Open champion Cilic struggled with his first serve in the opening set, yet still didn't face a single break point.

"As this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the all-rounder position becomes important".

The Aussie batting may be in tatters but they have four world class bowlers in Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon. There are people who believe Australia has never been weaker. "He's shown that over the last few years".

"They got through the Ashes previous year I thought and bowled a hell of a lot of overs".

"Our quicks are fresh and Travis Head bowls some handy off-spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers". In essence, BCCI has indicated that India will be going with six batters. "It is going to be no different for them; they are going to see at times if they can attack Lyon and get on top of him.so it is going to be a real chess match in that regard", he said.

The two cricketers were on their way from a practice season at the Adelaide Oval to the team hotel, which is situated close to the iconic venue which will be hosting the first Test from December 6.
