Australia v India: How do the hosts stop Virat Kohli?

But a video of the Indian captain practising in the batting nets ahead of the first Test against Australia at Adelaide Oval has given cricket fans a rare, keeper's-eye view of just how incredible a batsman Kohli is.

With 336 Test wickets in 64 matches to his name, Ravichandran Ashwin will be the leader of the pack in India's Test series Down Under.

Michael Clarke, who skippered the Test team after Ponting, had suggested there was too much emphasis on "being liked" in the Australia camp.

Virat Kohli's sledge protege Cheteshwar Pujara says India won't change its aggressive mindset or panic at ongoing bowling woes punctuating 70 years without series success in Australia. Smith has a staggering seven centuries - and a scary average of 84.06 - while Warner boasts four triple-figure scores against Australia's fierce rival.

Australia will face India in their maiden match.

Langer acknowledged that will encourage India, but he also warned the team top of the current ICC rankings that they are under greater pressure due to their poor record in Australia. "There's always a good coverage of grass here in Adelaide and it offers a bit with the new ball, but there's also a lot of runs to be had out there", he said about the toss. The chinaman Kuldeep Yadav will have to wait for his opportunity in the other Test matches. So I think it'll be a good contest.

In the recent series in England, the tall man from Chennai bowled from the seventh over on the opening morning of the first Test in Edgbaston.

After being dropped following a pair in the second Test against England this year, the 34-year-old was seen to be in a fight with incumbent KL Rahul to open the batting alongside Shaw in Adelaide.

Ponting also provided a game plan for how he would look to counter Kohli, encouraging the Australians to play on his ego by cutting off the boundaries and making run-scoring as hard as possible with tight lines. He's a world-class bowler, but I think we've got some world-class batters as well.

"Being the No. 1 test team, we always look to win each and every series and this is no different", he said. Most of our batters are experienced enough. "So while there is no doubt this is India's best chance to win in Australia, it's still incredibly challenging to be able to win away".

All-rounder and vice-captain Mitchell Marsh will offer another pace option to relieve Lyon and the fast bowlers should he be selected, but with a batting average of only 26.08, he may need runs to keep his spot.

Having said that, Kuldeep's place in the playing XI is not assured in the upcoming Test series.
