Visitors announce 12 ahead of first test, toss-up between Rohit and Hanuma

Six year old leg spinner added in Aussie squad for Boxing Day Test

The mercury is forecast to soar to 39C on Thursday for the beginning of the four-Test series, heightening the significance of Tim Paine and Kohli's pre-match coin toss.

It looks like a squad on predicted lines apart from the inclusion of Rohit Sharma, who had not played a Test since January in South Africa.

"Of course, the last time we were here, we had a very close series". It won't be easy, Adelaide as I mentioned is a good batting surface but if you look at that top seven, I mean you add up the Test matches all of them played it will be less than what Pujara and Kohli have played in their careers.

"Absolutely, India will start favourites in the Test series".

Ahead of the first Test in Adelaide, cricket legend Mark Taylor says the contest he's most looking forward to will be between the Australian vice-captain and India's Virat Kohli.

The new side has three Vics in the top six, with with Harris's opening partner Aaron Finch and Handscomb also from Victoria.

India have never won a Test series in Australia but Virat Kohli's team, despite guarded opinions from its members, is bidding to create history. Marsh has been dropped owing to poor form previously and he will be released to play Shield cricket once the match gets underway.

"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".

"The wicket over the last few years here has given enough throughout the game".

"The quicks are going to have a bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job".

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

"Our quicks are fresh and Travis Head bowls some handy off-spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers".

"You want to bat on days when it's 40 degrees", said the wicketkeeper.

The fan, while speaking to Rohit Sharma in a candid chat for bcci.tv on the pedestrian bridge that runs over River Torrens, said he believes India have a good opportunity to beat the Australians at their own backyard.
