The report supposedly states that the Indian team, led by Virat Kohli, fears the bouncy tracks at Brisbane and also of the "unknown" in Perth and the dark in Adelaide as they decided against playing a day-night Test, citing lack of preparation.

These are the burning questions that loom large ahead of a mouthwatering Test series between Australia and India, beginning on Thursday. So it all depends on how you want to attack, if you want to attack with three seamers and one spinner then who is the fast bowler who is going to control the game is something that India needs to think of.

Kohli, who scored an unbeaten 61 in India's win in Sydney on Sunday to tie the three-match Twenty20 series, also signalled his rich vein of form with a 64 off 87 balls. "I'm going with him to be the leading run scorer and man of the series", said Ponting, as quoted by cricket.com.au. "I hope they bring that, I know they do it consistently, they bowl aggressively".

"Always feels good to go to grounds where you have scored runs, it helps you a lot and I have good memories of it and looking forward to the Adelaide Test", he added.

"If you are not part of the team, you have to make sure you keep your work ethics at the top level and once you get the chance you have to be ready to go", he said.

Georgia can make a pretty good case for the playoff, too, but the Bulldogs will likely get left out. Alabama has won 15 consecutive games, starting with its two wins in last season's playoff.

The previous series between the two rivals have been heated, with the combative Kohli usually front and centre.

If you're a cricket fan, this is one to watch.

"And we can get them all on song and build pressure on him for a period of time then he's like the rest of us - he's human and he makes mistakes". That dramatic final day came in the second Test after the redeveloped Adelaide Oval unveiled a drop-in pitch, and Head said the curator Damian Hough had evolved a surface which provided a little assistance for everyone.

Pacemen Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma all struggled with their consistency, while Ashwin returned 1-63 from 24 overs. However, the same can be said of overcooking them and creating a fresh setback that could ruin Australia's plans for next year's World Cup and Ashes. "I think the only reasonable reason I can give is that I was disappointed the way India played in England and I thought they should have won that series", Chappell told "ESPNCricinfo". "If you can get through these (bowlers), you can get through anyone in the world".
