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.

"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".

"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".
