Mitch Marsh dropped for first Test against India

Mitch Marsh dropped for first Test against India

Skipper Tim Paine announced the squad today, with Peter Handscomb coming in for the all-rounder.

Debutant Harris will open alongside Aaron Finch, with Khawaja, whose brother was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly framing a colleague with a fake terror plot, coming in at first drop.

"It'll be either Peter Handscomb or Mitchell Marsh who'll take the five or six position", he said.

This is somewhat of a gamble to take in the first day Test at Adelaide Oval in four years, particularly if Virat Kohli calls correctly at the toss and bats first with temperatures expected to soar to 39 on Thursday and into the mid-30s the following day.

An Australian publication has been severely panned for captioning a picture of the travelling Indian team members as "Scaredy Bats", ahead of the first Test at Adelaide.

The new sensors from Qualcomm can recognize the fingerprints even if the display is dirty or covered with a screen protector. It will come as a separated modem that manufacturers will have to buy and integrate into their devices.


"We're pretty sure Marcus Harris will make his debut, which is very exciting for him", he said.

"We're taking the opportunity at the moment to send him back to play a Shield game, get some more cricket under his belt, knowing at some stage we're probably going to need him".

"The quicks are going to have a bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job". "It is going to be no different for them; they are going to see at times if they can attack Nathan and get on top of him and we're going to have bowl our quicks a bit more than we would like so it is going to be a real chess match in that regard". It's probably unlikely we will use the three quicks as the series wears on...

"I feel that any team that plays at home, they feel really good, and I feel that Australia are still the favourites to win the series".
