We know he's good player, I've seen it first hand at Bengaluru, he's an extremely good player, but I think we've got the bowlers to do the job.

"The trainer and physio had been monitoring the workload so depending on that we thought it is best to take a break and train for the next two days and be fresh for the Test match".

Bancroft's suspension ends on December 29 while Smith and Warner, banned until March 29, have spent time in the nets with Langer over the past week although this was done under the auspices of the players still being able to train with their state teams through their first-class suspensions.

India had a useful outing on the second day of their only warm-up match before the test series against Australia with five of their batsmen hitting half centuries on Thursday against a Cricket Australia XI.

Winning games, let alone series, has proven hard enough. In 2016, Australia and South Africa played a D/N Test in Adelaide, which last four days.

Kohli insisted Test cricket was the "most handsome format of the game" despite the razzmatazz and hype around the shorter formats.

He appeared to roll his ankle as he caught a Max Bryant shot at deep mid-wicket, before falling to the ground in agony and inadvertently throwing the ball over the boundary. "So it's done everything really well", he said. "I just think it's a bit of a no brainer, just a show of sportsmanship". As the Shield season's gone on, the wicket's become quicker.

"... You have to be able to impose yourself on the game in a way other than using your mouth.You've got to use your actions and your skills and if they do that, then they can definitely unsettle him".

Lyon captured 21 England wickets last summer, destroying Moeen Ali in their spin-bowling duel. "He's made for a wicket for everyone, the flawless combination".

Pujara denied there was pressure on the Indian batsmen and said he was drawing confidence from his epic double century in Ranchi against an attack containing Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. "The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier", Hough told The Weekend Australian.
