In total, he has scored 204 runs in his last five matches. The 20-year-old, on his first tour of India, had scores of 68 and 31 despite suffering from upset stomach and dizziness which required medical attention. "Hopefully, we will play the way we have to and how we've played before".

Kumble though felt it was unfortunate that Nair had been warming the benches. But that's the way the composition of the team has been.

The left-handed opener also said that the week-long training stint in Dubai had been of great help to the team.

"People have been successful in a group. It is nice to have these kind of choices in the team", said Kumble. He strongly believe thet team India will hit back hard in the second Test.

"You can't keep winning every game", Kumble pointed out on Thursday (March 2).

"I don't go into a match seeing how the wicket is, but with an open mind".

Warner showed plenty of restraint in his first innings last week but should find conditions better suited to playing a more expansive game in Bangalore. Two days out, the grass was duly shaved, giving it a firm yet baked look. We saw all the tricks in Pune - their bowling changes, their fielding placements, the way they play as a number one team so for us to beat them on home soil was awesome and fantastic.

India's defeat in Pune ended an unbeaten run stretching to 19 Test matches.

"I just have to get it out of my system and move forward", Vijay said ahead of the second test in Bangalore, which starts Saturday and where the pitch is expected to play vastly differently.

Colon, rectal cancers on the rise for millennials
Even before Tuesday's study , the cancer society had been set to review its screening guidelines this year. By 2013, that rate had doubled, a change of more than 2% per year over that time.

For the Redskins franchise, Kirk Cousins is "it".
Cousins record against.500 teams is 5-13 and that number drops to 2-11 when he is facing teams with nine or more wins. He loved playing for new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan when he was the Washington Redskins' offensive coordinator.

Evacuate Nigerians in South Africa, TUC urges FG
It has also been reported that Nigerians were more of the casualties, a situation that prompted some of the lawmakers to recommend hardcore response against South Africa authorities.

"I can not think about too much about technique".

"To watch those four back-to-back Test match hundreds against Australia in Australia was surreal". What has happened has happened, it is done and dusted. But we try not to read too much into the actual wicket.

"Australia played well, we didn't play really well". It was challenging but we didn't adapt. We're proud of where we've come but now we've got three more Tests to go and we'll start our preparation today. We've had a fantastic home season. Across conditions, be it Sri Lanka, India, West Indies. "We didn't adapt to the conditions (against SA) and that's one thing we've done very well here", Warner pointed out. "And that's exactly what we are looking forward", he added.

Vijay stated that he expects the wicket at the Chinnaswamy Stadium to be a good one but personally he has never been bothered by the nature of the 22 yards.

In the seven Tests since they adopted the DRS, India have asked for a review 55 times and been correct on just 17 occasions.

"I can't see it being too bouncy or quick because it's a weakness of the Indian batters", Starc said.

"Australia are a quality side".

█ I think it takes a loss like that at home to sometimes really get guys going.
