The veteran opening batsman smacked an entertaining 129, including 16 fours and five sixes, in a warm-up match against a Cricket Australia XI on Saturday.
Veteran Indian opener Murali Vijay is all set for their first Test match against Australia, beginning December 6, and is aiming for a good start against the hosts.
Asked about India coach Ravi Shastri's recent assertions of this being the best travelling Indian team in the last 15 years, Chappell said there are reasons to agree with it to an extent. So it all depends on how you want to attack, if you want to attack with three seamers and one spinner then who is the fast bowler who is going to control the game is something that India needs to think of.
The talk is all about Virat Kohli right now but the Australian bowlers' preparation for other Indian batsmen is as detailed and anyone who thinks otherwise is plain "silly", all-rounder Mitchell Marsh said Tuesday.
"It suits me because I'm a batsman who likes to play off the back foot", he said. If Ashwin can adjust to these conditions it could be a game-changer, especially with so many left-handers in Australia's XI. "Our bowlers know what they have to do. they know what line and lengths to bowl in Australia".
"I think you have to compete against our bowlers because it's hard work", Hazlewood said.
He nonetheless added that Kohli would do well in the series. As an 18-year-old, Tendulkar won the approving nod and admiration of the Australian cricket fraternity when he scored an unconquered 148 in the first innings of the Sydney Test and 114 in the first innings of the Perth Test - both on his debut tour of Down Under in 1991-92.
The chief executive said that the fans turned up in significant numbers when they had day-night Test matches, but the same is not the case with day games.
"In India we have been doing really well but whenever we travel overseas there is always an extra motivation to do well".
"And we can get them all on song and build pressure on him for a period of time then he's like the rest of us - he's human and he makes mistakes". "We thought that it was best to take a break today and train for the next two days and be fresh for the test match".
"That was my basic fundamental after being dropped in England until now".
"I have got some good overs under my belt the last couple of weeks for Western Australia". Once you got in, it was Adelaide Oval.
