Mitchell Marsh omission leaves Australia's quicks facing hefty workload

India vs Australia Cheteshwar Pujara saves India the blushes after top order falls cheaply

Vice-captain and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was left out of the playing eleven and opener Marcus Harris is set for his worldwide debut.

Australia skipper Tim Paine says he is sick of all the ball-tampering talk and it is time to move on and focus on halting powerhouse India from winning their first Test series Down Under.

With Australia in turmoil, India are "smelling blood" but Virat Kohli's men would also be under great pressure to perform during the four-Test series starting here Thursday, coach Justin Langer said Wednesday. Especially in this kind of situation where two of their best batsman have scored literally 50 percent of their runs for Australia are not a part of the playing eleven and they haven't really done well since they have left Test cricket. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

It is also surprising that India has opted for just one spinner and that is the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin and they have not gone for the wrist spinner in Kuldeep Yadav.

His remarks then led to an equity market sell-off as investors feared fast interest rate hike pace would slow down the economy. President Trump argued that the Fed's policies were damaging the economy and pointed to the recent stock market correction.

"I don't think any Australian side is vulnerable at home", Kohli said, suggesting the loss of several of its top players will not affect Australia.

Most encouragingly, Australia is back on home turf where the likes of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon flourish.

Paine said Marsh was likely to have an important role during the series by being required to bowl on less helpful surfaces.

"We know he is good enough to be a genuine all rounder at Test level. We've been rolling our sleeves up, we've got plenty to prove as well", Langer said.

Tagovailoa, on the other hand, went 10-25 for 164 yards and a TD with two INTs. "Great comeback for our team". While this one didn't end with the suddenness of that national title game, it hurt just as bad.

"They got through the Ashes past year I thought and bowled a hell of a lot of overs", captain Tim Paine said.

"The quicks are going to have a bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job".

"Our quicks are fresh and Travis Head bowls some handy off-spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers. He's shown that over the last few years". Vihari inspired one and all with his solid technique in England and has subsequently backed it up with solid knocks in warm up fixtures and A team matches. The biggest point of debate in the dressing room would be whether to go with six pure batsmen or to play five bowlers.
