We're not concerned about being liked - Tim Paine

  • Michael Clarke says Australia 'won't win' being nice

It depends on a given day.

'I played to win, but played by the rules of the game and to a similar level of aggression to the other worldwide teams I played against, ' he wrote.

"In terms of skill, in terms of experience, in terms of how we are playing, our mindset, we definitely feel we have the ability to win a series here", he added. India, led by firebrand Virat Kohli, have never been a side to back down from a challenge, and have shown no inclination to follow Australia's (enforced) example of prioritising sportsmanship over success. "I know some guys enjoy it, [to] some guys it doesn't matter", Paine said. "Comparing that to now you can see they are obviously trying to minimise it more".

"The more we can bring it back, the more harmony you get the happier environment for everyone". I'd like to think the Gerald was deliberate. "We definitely expect stiff competition from Australia as always and we are definitely not taking anything for granted".

Vijay, returning to the Test squad after being dropped mid-way through the England tour, celebrated his comeback with an unbeaten century off 118 balls. We are not even thinking like we have a pressure situation. Australia is the one place you get the bounce so you can play your shots coming from India and exploring shots that you have kept in your kit. Regardless, though, of the wickets he takes he will also have a role to play in keeping a hold on the scoring rate to allow the three quicks to rotate and not exhaust themselves, in the manner Graeme Swann did on England's successful 2010-11 tour. "We had a great catch-up", said Langer.

"This is all I will add today".

It will be hard for Indian bowlers in Australia, predicts Former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram.


"It is very hard to say right now (about facial expressions)". I believe everything happens for a reason, said Ashwin. The hosts' lower order all got good runs with Daniel Fallins (43), Luke Robins (38 not out) and Jackson Coleman (36) keeping the visitors chasing leather in the sun. "There is no one key batsman to look out for but our aim is to get everyone all out".

"I think some people just took it the wrong way - they thought it means the Australian cricket team is going to be overly nice, or a bit soft, but it's not that at all. It's like a turn on, it makes him play better".

Responding to Clarke's statement, Paine said the team had not spoken about being "liked" by anyone.

The war of words was initially sparked when Clarke suggested the Australian team should prioritise playing "tough" cricket over being liked, with the view splitting former teammates Simon Katich and Matthew Hayden.

"If you try and walk away from it, we might be the most-liked team in the world, [but] we're not going to win s**t", he said.

"It's always better to be on your toes and be ready for your opportunity when you hit the ground".

Kohli's celebration after picking up the wicket was hilarious as he was visibly overjoyed as well as surprised by his own bowling prowess. So it is very early to talk about combinations. We are now working on a few specifics and the whole idea of practice game is to get the feel going.
