Paine's batting lineup has been rated the worst Australia has ever assembled in tests by local media, so the bowlers could well be under pressure to defend some modest totals. "But at the same time I would like to respect the opposition".

The outcry reflected just how important the pitch is to players, fans and administrators who have invested time - and lots of money - to watch a dramatic contest.Despite the huge pressure, the curators are focused on the root of their jobs - nurturing the plants and trying to get the best out of them every time. "So, I would not sit back and let anyone bully", the former Australian captain further added.

India would aim to win the Tests in Australia. "They are fine to go".

Vice-captain and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was left out of the playing eleven and opener Marcus Harris is set for his global debut.

"We know the talent Mitch has".

"Each and every batsman's role will be to contribute for the team and I think for us it is important to get those long partnerships together (like last time). If we can get on top of them early, hopefully that will filter through the rest of the Test".

"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, our bowlers will be a bit exhausted then the all rounder position becomes important", said Paine.

But their efforts, in many ways, papered over the cracks of a fragile top order - with the line-up to be rolled out against India in Adelaide to strongly resemble that which struggled in the UAE. Virat at the other end was really aggressive and going after the bowlers, verbally as well.

Later, hand-writing experts found differences between the script in the notebook and Mr Nizamdeen's own writing. He appeared before Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday afternoon.

Then there is Marcus Harris on debut, who we will come to shortly with some shots from his cap presentation down on the field.

"There has been so much talk in the last 10 months that everyone is sick of it", he said ahead of Australia's first home Test since "sandpapergate", where Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft tried to alter the ball in South Africa.

"They're a good team and they've got a couple of great players and we will show them great respect".

Paine said given the current conditions, his side was inclined to bat first should it win the toss Thursday morning.

After enjoying a day off on Monday, India got down to business in a bid to prepare for the first Test.

However, Shane Watson quoted the Gabba wicket would have been helpful for the hosts, as it gives bounce to the fast bowlers.

"Four years ago it was a very special Test for a lot bigger reasons than cricket but to win the game of cricket the way the Australian side did, it was pretty special to be a part of that", said Lyon.

"They will test us out in the next three days which will be good because then you walk out to the middle knowing that you're prepared well and ready to go".
