India vs Australia Test series: Selectors retain winning squad, Amit Mishra out

Former Australia batsman Michael Hussey believes it will take a "collective bowling effort" from Australia to get rid of Indian captain Virat Kohli in their upcoming four-Test series against India.

India have named an unchanged squad for the first two Tests of the four-Test series, all of which will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The India selectors have stuck with a winning combination, retaining the 16-man squad from the test victory over Bangladesh for the first two tests against Australia. "For us as an Australian cricket team, we have to respond better than that", Warner was quoted as saying by India Today. The latter venue will be Australia's best chance to win a match as the conditions will favour fast bowlers.

"We do know that India are playing very good cricket and in their own backyard they are exceptional.They crush teams".

Most recently, in 2010, Australia managed to crumble to a seven-wicket loss despite posting 478 in the first innings.

Ashwin also boasts the record for the equal most five-wicket hauls after 45 Tests, having collected 24.

Reviving an old habit, David Warner, the explosive Australian opener, has indulged in a war of words just ahead of their four-Test series in India, starting February 23 in Pune, stating that he has his game plans in place to tackle the Indian offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin. But the biggest challenge awaits them now, the mighty Australians.




"I have a good mix of bowlers". Right now, I must admit we are in the right frame of mind to go out and succeed.

Lyon, who has 228 wickets in 63 Tests, took 15 wickets during Australia's 0-4 defeat in India on their previous visit in 2012-13, and Starc is the only other specialist bowler in the squad with Test experience in India. Before the series against South Africa, Australia had lost 3-0 to Sri Lanka.

"We have to get through the first hour and stay cool in the dressing room as well".

"But once again the challenge for Australia will be spin".

And above all, he comprehends that the game that has been his life since he quit secondary school early to pursue it follows an altogether different pace and rhythm in its new financial, political and fanatical heartland. "The conditions are so foreign to what we get back home, so the guys have worked hard to try and find what works for them and now it's about implementing that and doing that for long periods of time". The great Warne backed them up. The outcome of the Test series will decide many things, including the team and players' rankings.

Not always hitting the seam but sometimes the shiny side of the ball.
