Also, it will be interesting to see whether Virat Kohli goes with the spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal or gives rest to one of the two.

Thus, it will be interesting to see whether the 25-year-old will be able to translate his form in white-ball cricket or will he suffer on the sub-continent conditions against the quality Indian bowling unit, which consists of the world's best pacers at the moment - Jasprit Bumrah. "This time around the series is going to be different, in terms of their batting challenging our bowlers".

The last five-match Test series was played Down Under in which Mohammad Azharuddin's India were beaten 4-0 by Allan Border's side. If you take out David (Warner) and Steve (Smith). Warne, the second-highest wicket-taker in Tests with 708 scalps, however, wants the four-match Test series to be made into a five-game one. The way he's shaped up in the last summer, it's unbelievable - so much consistency it always good to watch at the worldwide level - and the hunger and passion, you can see in his game. "So I think, we along with Australia are probably the top two sides in the world as far as balance is concerned". "We're pretty excited for it". "It's become a very exciting feature of any Test series, so we are absolutely open to play a day-night Test", Kohli told reporters in Mumbai.

Virender Sehwag takes a dig at planned four-day Tests
The former India opener has carved a special place in the history of cricket with his unprecedented style of batting. He changed how we played Test cricket. "If you play well, money will follow (you)".

"We played the day-night test here (in India), we are pretty happy with how it went", Kohli told reporters on the eve of the opening one-day worldwide against Australia.

"Australia will be full of confidence after an excellent World Cup and a great summer of Test cricket but India will be keen to redeem themselves from the last ODI series loss against Australia".

If we talk about ODI cricket, who can forget Yuvraj's memorable knock in the ICC Knockout 2000; one that paved way for the pre-mature exit of the defending champions from the marquee event or Ricky Ponting's epic annihilation of the Indians in the 2003 World Cup final or Yuvraj and India's redemption eight years later? "Whether it's white ball, red ball or pink ball, we're ready to play anything". There's uncertainty around the Boxing Day and New Year's Test too, with Kevin Roberts stating that "no specific Test anywhere around the country is locked in into the future". They seem to have begun already.
