Ashwin said India got good bowling practice in the sole warm-up ahead of the first Test beginning December 6 at Adelaide.

"It is a reflection of the balance of power if Virat says that - you've got a lot of people who will listen", explained Gower, who said the introduction of a World Test Championship from next year will help provide greater context for matches.

The Australian cricket fraternity has been more divided than ever before in the lead up to the India series.

CA has arranged an Australia A tour of England that will run concurrently with the World Cup, ensuring Test-only players like captain Paine have a chance to adjust to local conditions.

Vijay, returning to the Test squad after being dropped mid-way through the England tour, celebrated his comeback with an unbeaten century off 118 balls.

Vijay, who scored 129 off 132 deliveries in the second innings, raced from 52 to his hundred in a space of just 27 balls, including scoring 26 runs off one over. You don't go personal, you don't insult someone, but you do what you have to do to get in the contest with the batsman of the bowler. It has hit him pretty hard.

Both Smith and Warner, captain and vice-captain of the side when they were suspended, have been active on the short-format league circuit, and are match-fit, but Langer stressed that it won't be a matter of just throwing them back in the team once they become available. He reiterated a message also delivered on his first day as coach that he paralleled Australian cricket now with where Western Australia was at when he took over a fractious team, state association and wider cricket community in late 2012, before bringing the disparate groups together over time. I don't know what's going to happen.

India used as many as 10 bowlers, with Mohammed Shami being the most successful with three wickets. Ishant Sharma (0-57) too bowled 16 overs. What can I learn?

"This is all I will add today".

"There are a lot of headaches when you play global cricket, personally and for the teams you are part of, so it makes no sense to try and get your heads into another dressing room".

Note also that Clarke pulled the old "you never played the game line", as though your career path has any relevance in a debate over the spirit of how the game is played.

"The more we can bring it back, the more harmony you get the happier environment for everyone".

"Kohli will play well I'm sure because he does everywhere he goes and had a great series against Australia last time". When you lose a series, it's easy for someone to come out and say we've been a bit tame.

"In the Ashes they nearly whitewashed England, knocked them over, and so as far as I'm concerned they are starting favourites".

A scathing independent review into the ball-tampering scandal released in October revealed a bullying culture within the sport and criticised cricketers for "playing the mongrel" against opponents.
