  • INDvBAN | Watch Kohli's street-smartness turns third umpire's 'not out' decision into 'out'

You don't know where the mole is going to pop out from and you need to be on your guard all the time.

The selection committee, led by M.S.K. Prasad retained the same squad which defeated Bangladesh by 208 runs in the one-off Test match at Hyderabad.

Jadeja got his fourth when Taijul Islam (6) mistimed a pull-shot and was caught by KL Rahul. "Whether Australia win or compete, Warner is going to score a lot of runs".

Adding to his honourable stats, the 30-year-old is fifth on the all-time list for 10-wicket hauls, claiming seven in his 45 Tests.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja chipped in to dismiss a fighting Soumya Sarkar for 42 and end his 60-run stand second-wicket stand with Mominul Haque.

His dominance began with the tour of Sri Lanka in 2015, followed by the four-Test series against South Africa, in which he sent the Proteas into a tizzy by collecting 31 wickets as the Indians romped to a 3-0 series win.

There were embarrassing scenes at the Mumbai International Airport on Monday night when the Australian cricket team arrived for their high profile four-Test series against the home team.

Champions Real Comeback To Sink Brave Napoli
It was a attractive response for Napoli and one that will be treasured for a long time . Two more chances fell Madrid's way before the final whistle.

Ninth-ranked Bangladesh, which has never won a Test against India, is playing its first Test on Indian soil since gaining five-day status in 2000.

"I don't think it's anything particular as far as technique or anything like that, I just think he's so on top of his game at the moment", he said. "If that means people want to get into a battle verbally, if that gets the best of out them, then go for it", said Smith at a press conference on Tuesday. In India reverse swing is very important and both Josh and Mitch are very good reverse swing bowlers.

The surfaces in that series were similar to those Australia received in Sri Lanka previous year - slow, low and offering reasonable turn and natural variation.

The Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia is already gathering a good hype.

"I don't think it's because of me; I mean everyone at global level wants to do well". Obviously it's going to be a hard tour but we're excited by that challenge.

The world's second-ranked team have had a training camp in Dubai to prepare for the tour and Australia will also play a three-day practice match against an India A side from Thursday, before they head to Pune for the opening Test from February 23. All of the guys are really excited about what's to come in the next six weeks.
