  • India tour of Australia 2018

Australia will employ one of their least credentialed batting line-ups in almost half a century with the team's aggregate of 9209 Test runs the lowest since the first Test in 1977-78 when Australia employed six debutants to replace the World Series Cricket rebels.

With the world's number one Test nation awaiting them in Adelaide in the first of four Tests from Thursday, the Australia skipper said it was time to start looking forward.

Marsh's place has been taken by middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb - who has been recalled for the first time since the tour of South Africa in March and April - meaning Australia will rely on three seamers.

Throw in Australia being without Smith and Warner, and it points to India starting as overwhelming favourites. Marsh has been dropped owing to poor form previously and he will be released to play Shield cricket once the match gets underway.

"Mitch Marsh probably just hasn't been as consistent as he would like and we would like", Paine told a news conference on Wednesday. "He's shown that over the last few years".

The dumping of Mitch Marsh will add an extra burden for Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and spinner Nathan Lyon, who will have to take on more overs in what are forecast to be scorching hot conditions in Adelaide.

"We know he's good enough to be a genuine all-rounder at test level".

"I personally don't think any Australian side is vulnerable at home", Kohli said. Most likely at some stage this series we'll need him.

India will pick their playing XI for the first Test against Australia from the 12 players which was announced on Wednesday.

"The quicks are going to have to bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job in any conditions", he said.

"Our quicks are fresh and Travis Head bowls some handy off-spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers".

"They got through the Ashes past year I thought and bowled a hell of a lot of overs", captain Tim Paine said. Vihari inspired one and all with his solid technique in England and has subsequently backed it up with solid knocks in warm up fixtures and A team matches. So for India to be really effective if they can get a good start when they bowl against Australia, then Australia will be under serious pressure.
