India has played 11 Test series in Australia since first visiting in 1947.

In reply, Cricket Australia XI scored 24 runs without losing any wickets when stumps were drawn.

"Mitch Johnson has written about the toxic culture that developed under Clarke's leadership; the collapse in the sense of team left some of them not even wanting to play".

"Virat has an aura about him".

"It's a fallacy to say that the only way to play hard competitive cricket is by being aggressive, abusive and in the face of the opposition".

"But he and all of them are only human, they can make mistakes". "Clarke's interpretation of the predicament the Australian men's Test team finds itself in is breathtaking", Whateley said. That's the approach I took a year ago.

"She'll know that a big part of my job as a dad is to teach her resilience but on the same hand I'll make it clear to her that I don't think it's right or appropriate to insult someone's integrity or credibility and be proud of what you stand for and what you believe in".


Langer, who took over from Darren Lehmann after Lehmann stepped down in the aftermath of the episode, has spent time chatting with Smith and Warner, as well as Bancroft, recently."I didn't deliberately catch up with them separately". It's nice to have Davey in and Steve had a hit yesterday, I had breakfast with him on Monday morning and I caught up with Davey for a couple of hours that afternoon as well.

Fallins was squeezed out of NSW's Sheffield Shield side following Test offspinner Nathan Lyon's return but the 22-year-old is highly regarded at the SCG.

Number three Cheteshwar Pujara spent some quality time at the crease during his knock of 54, while vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane pitched in with 56 before retiring out to let others bat. Something's got me 350-odd wickets in my Test career, something's got him 300-odd wickets in his career.

But former England captain David Gower said comments made by Kohli, the world's top-rated batsman, during India's 4-1 Test series loss in England this year, are significant. It is proven under Australian conditions and the Indian attack is not proven under Australian conditions. "That's 100% how I feel", Clarke said on Macquarie Radio.

"Having Shane Watson around the past few seasons has also been great". In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill.

In a recent interview Michael Clarke has put forward a point vowing Australian cricket team to play "tough Australian cricket" in upcoming test series which may include a barrage of sledging or a bit of ball tampering saying keeping history as a reference on a lighter note. We had a great catch-up.
