However, Langer said Kohli and Co. are a good team and the hosts will show respect to the visitors. Yes, they will miss Warner and Steve Smith, but that confidence level, the attitude and the approach you expect of an Australian player, an Australian team - the character of the Australian sides against whom I played - that character is not obvious in this Australian team. This has meant a recall for Peter Handscomb in the middle order, handing Victoria three spots in the same Australian batting line-up for the first time since Bill Lawry, Ian Redpath and Keith Stackpole in the 1970-71 Ashes.

"Just like the great Australian cricket team of 2001 felt and we just fell short (of winning in India) and we were able to (win in) 2004", Langer told Australian radio channel SEN's Whateley. Most likely at some stage this series we'll need him.

"We know the talent Mitch has".

"The fans have absolutely voted with their feet the last few years that we have had day-night Tests, we have been significantly up for attendances", Bradshaw said.

Apart from anything else, the decision to drop a recently appointed vice-captain underlined how slim Australia's leadership resources now are.

But the Indians have never won a Test series in Australia and if pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are firing the tourists could be in for another tough time. "They'll also be under great pressure, I think".

". they're (India) up against a really talented young Australian cricket team who have got plenty to prove", he said.

"It's probably unlikely we'll use the three quicks as much we will this game through the whole series as it wears on".

Paine was dismissive of questions over whether Starc, Hazlewood and Cummins would be capable of standing up to the workload, given their micro-managed preparation for this assignment.

"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", said Kohli. "So, they are fresh and ready to go". Without them, India could have a golden opportunity to break their series drought.
