Ashwin undergoes solo practice session ahead of final Test

Ashwin undergoes solo practice session ahead of final Test

The former Test opener, renowned for putting a high price on his wicket, seemingly remains adamant Finch can make the cut in Test cricket after a couple of sloppy dismissals.

Kohli, who has 459 runs from 12 ODIs against Pakistan, has never played a Test against India's arch-rivals.

"It's good fun, it's challenging".

The tourists stand on the verge of a maiden Test series win Down Under following their 137-run win in Melbourne but have a final balancing act to perform in terms of selections.

"But I've had some pretty wonderful people around to be supportive and help along the way". The people are now talking about the virtues of India's domestic cricket. I can't really think what else they can do.

"I'm not too concerned with it, you just have to manage it physically and stay ahead of the injury and I have been able to do it for now". The final Test will get underway at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday.

Team India is looking to wrap the Test series on a winning note, having a 2-1 lead.

"That's how it looks Labuschagne probably bats four, Head five and Mitch Marsh six I think that's the way they're going to line up". It did get better as the game went on and there was a result, albeit not the one the Aussies would have wanted.

Golden State Warriors don't match Patrick McCaw's Cleveland Cavaliers offer, sources say
Wojnarowski adds that McCaw signing the offer sheet is alluding to the fact that he doesn't wish to remain with the Warriors . McCaw averaged four points and 1.4 rebounds while shooting under 30 percent from three in his two seasons with Golden State.

"We have one of the best bowling attacks in the world and they keep rocking up and absorbing the pressure".

Australian pacer Pat Cummins on Tuesday called suggestions of him captaining the Test side "ridiculous" and instead backed skipper Tim Paine to lead the side for a long time. When I saw him the first time I had thought (whether) he could last long with this kind of action, but he has. Everyone waits nervously to see whether Warner will have his say. You have to be on your A game when you're facing him or he will strike.

"But we know they've got some other spinners in their squad, Kuldeep is younger but got some serious talent and (Ravindra) Jadeja did the job for them in Melbourne". "It's about keeping perspective and reality about where we're at and I think the main thing for us is that we're improving".

"His Test record is phenomenal, but it's the situations which he does it in that make it so special. It's a great challenge".

"It's been an interesting year, a hard year. the silver lining is in the next few months we've got some world-class players available", Paine said after the third Test loss. It's not often we have to deal with that in a home summer.

Skipper Tim Paine has refrained from announcing his playing XI just yet although Marnus Labuschagne is expected to be introduced in the playing XI.

Q: How do you rate India's performances thus far? The defeat not only left them trailing 2-1 in the series but also made their defiant win in the second match in Perth appear something of a false dawn instead of a turning point in a rebuilding team's fortunes.

"Then they have [Mayank] Agarwal fly in the week before the Melbourne Test, the biggest occasion, and he kills it".
