India vs Australia, 2nd Test

Kohli carries his own fire and plays with it. He does not need the opposition to set the match ablaze

"They are a great side... but at the same time we are determined to keep the momentum going our way", the opener told reporters.

Unusual basketball moves, brutal Savea bumps and O'Keefe heroics in India, these are the plays of the week.

The next day, the final one of the match, his side were rolled for 107 with the 212 run aggregate his side had cobbled together the lowest ever made by a Test side in India.

"Because if you have the odd hot chilli, it can definitely go through you". "I was really proud of the way the boys played last week but it's only one game of cricket in a four-match series".

As we approach the second Test in Bengaluru, the Indian team will need to rectify a host of issues to come up trumps.

Everyone may be concerned about spin on tour in India, but Mitchell Starc remains Australia's main weapon for the second Test in Bangalore, according to all-rounder Mitch Marsh.

While heroics with bat in hand are to be expected from Australia's captain it was the 12-wicket match haul of O'Keefe in just his fifth Test that would come as the most pleasant of surprises to Australian fans.

Smith's counterpart, India captain Virat Kohli, is a model of fitness and discipline and takes his diet as seriously as he does facing a rampaging Mitchell Starc. "It is a good thing to play on wickets which test your character and technique", Vijay said.

The US economy in 2016 grew by 1.9% in the second quarter, which was weaker than expected at 2.1%, according to a revised report. Investors are betting that his policies on taxes and regulation will accelerate economic growth and boost corporate profits.

"I can assure you that everyone is taking this as a massive challenge and everyone is raring to turn things around in the series and play the kind of cricket that we all know that we can play and not take a backward step at any stage". With Ishant Sharma bowling merely three overs in the second innings at Pune, and the batters struggling to get the team total past three figures, Kohli could be tempted to add an extra batsman to the team sheet. The facts, though, are not entirely supportive.

"It's part and parcel, it's playing cricket for Australia, to be playing at the top level, and people are always entitled to their opinion".

He may have won the opening duel against Virat Kohli by getting the star batsman out for a duck in the first Test, but the Australian fast bowler insists the Indian skipper will bounce back.

India's record at the ground is not strong.

The Chinnaswamy wicket seems in flawless shape with a tinge of grass, a slow turner and flat pitch to assist batsmen to the fullest.

Warner said the series defeat to South Africa at home late past year was painful. India team has good bowlers and equally good batters to win the test match.

"I think it is time we focus on our skills more than what Australia is saying or preparing like". "It doesn't take much to get up for that sort of occasion".

"Personally I don't go into a match seeing the wicket".
