He is, though, against matches in the 141-year-old format being reduced to a maximum of four days from five to make them more attractive - England are playing a four-day match against Test newcomers Ireland in July.

"Mitchell Johnson definitely rattled him a few times with some good, hostile bowling and some good, hostile body language around him".

"I have been working hard on my game and fitness, and I am looking forward to contributing in this series".

"Being the No. 1 test team, we always look to win each and every series and this is no different", he said.

The lack of success can be attributed to a range of factors, with the most obvious being that Australian pitches have generally been the antithesis of what players grew accustomed to back home.

As for the recent innovation of day-night Tests, the former Pakistan batsman added: "In Southeast Asia we've got the right weather for day-night cricket but don't reduce it (Test cricket)".

Of some consolation to traditionalists is that the debate is nothing new, with Test cricket still alive and kicking.

Ahead of the wedding, Chopra and Jonas sat for a puja, or prayer ceremony, that traditionally kicks off the wedding. Underneath the long-sleeve gown was a strapless column dress made up of over two million mother of pearl sequins.

India experimented with pink-ball cricket in its Duleep Trophy domestic championship in 2016 but has yet to warm to it at an worldwide level. "Ishant Sharma's last time out here he got extra bounce. Guys have scored runs and it has spun, so wicket's done everything really well". The series saw the visitors lose their first two matches and then returning to play out draws in the final two encounters.

"So playing against them, performing well against them, will help me in this series".

Kohli averages 62 from eight Tests in Australia, the best effort by any Indian to have played more than three Tests Down Under.

Those runs haven't translated into victories.

Shaw is the latest to be dubbed "the next Sachin Tendulkar" by hopefuls back home, and the teenager is delivery promising results, becoming the youngest Indian to score a century on Test debut last month. The Indian captain picked a wicket and then celebrated it in a amusing way.

And while Lyon will hope to spin it past the Indian batsmen, India have Ravichandran Ashwin, the No.7 on the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings for bowlers. Eddings got the job after predecessor David Peever was forced to step aside having lost the support of key states NSW and Victoria.

"We got what we wanted in the practice game and the trainer and the physio has been monitoring the workload", Pujara said.
