After all the talk, sledges, intent, and plenty of planning, the Test series between India and Australia is set to begin. Middle-order batsman Hanuma Vihari, who impressed in his maiden Test assignment in England earlier this year, also finds a place in the 12-man squad.

Australia were plunged in crisis after the ball-tampering scandal in March this year saw Cricket Australia handing out year-long bans on Steve Smith and David Warner.

"Just like the great Australian cricket team of 2001 felt and we just fell short (of winning in India) and we were able to (win in) 2004", Langer told Australian radio channel SEN's Whateley.

"We know he's good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at test level".

Opener Marcus Harris will make his Test debut, while Travis Head will bat at number six for Australia.

"Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test all-rounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the all-rounder position becomes important". There's the opportunity for him to go back and get a Shield game under his belt before the BBL start.

This is somewhat of a gamble to take in the first day Test at Adelaide Oval in four years, particularly if Virat Kohli calls correctly at the toss and bats first with temperatures expected to soar to 39 on Thursday and into the mid-30s the following day. "Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test allrounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter, conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the allrounder position becomes important".

"That's why I feel that India have got a big chance because they are a settled unit and they will be confident".

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

"And probably the fact that all our three quicks go in real fresh".

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect", he said. In 44 Tests on Australian soil, they have only managed five wins thus far. "This time around, we hope we don't disappoint our fans", Rohit said.
