We have ‘options’ in place for Virat Kohli: Josh Hazlewood

I believe that will show in our performances in the future.

As noted by many in the comments section, Kohli looked like he can hold his own in Australia and he's really hungry for some runs. I think that's been a focus for them in recent times and they're starting to see the benefits. On the outside what people think, we can not control.

"I like to compete in the nets. you have to compete in the nets against our bowlers", Head said.

A lot of talk has been on how to stop Kohli from getting runs in this part of the world where the World's No.1 batsman has enjoyed enormous success in his last visit.

Cricket Australia took to Twitter to share the pictures of Archie training alongside the team before the start of the first Test.

"Hopefully the boys get him under control", said Head.

"Kohli's challenge is to get the best out of his batsmen and seize the winning moments which India has failed to latch on to", he added.

"It happens to every cricketer - they do have a favourite ground away from home. When you tour overseas, in countries like England, South Africa and Australia, it is important to start well". For fans, however, be it a match day or even a non-match day, there are loads to catch up on the cricketing front with updates from around the world.

"I love playing cricket here, excited about the opportunities that lay ahead".

Kohli further stated that good memories here certainly helps build confidence.

India's senior-most pacer Ishant Sharma, who has played 10 Test matches in Australia, has enough firepower in his armoury to intimidate best of the Aussie batsmen. When it comes to fast bowling, this is probably one of the best attacks we have in many years. The tourists, for the first time this year, played a proper practice game after what transpired in South Africa and England.

Langer, of course, has started his tenure as Australian coach by nailing down the key criteria for selection in the top six: runs, runs and more runs. But it takes character. They should look forward to that and not think of it as a burden, or something which is going to be tough.

Kohli feels the line won't be crossed by either of the teams.

"I don't see anything radical happening. but the competitiveness will be there". In his 12th year as an worldwide cricketer, to many "that spell to Ponting" still defines Ishant Sharma. "We don't expect guys to just come, bowl and walk back", Kohli said.

"Yeah, at times when situations are hard you do find ways to upset the batsmen's rhythm", he said.

"He doesn't give you much out in the middle, we just had that connection and some great partnerships I'll always remember".

"We don't want to wait to figure out what the condition of the pitch is going to be, we have got to read it really early and alter our games accordingly, which I think we failed to do in the last tours".

Both are aware of the public's high expectations after predecessors came under fire for their pitches."You've got to have pretty strong shoulders", Lewis told AFP."You notice with cricket, everyone has an opinion. Be it your body language or putting in a word or two".
