India vs Australia 3rd Test: Ranchi to Produce Another Turner

Former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has had verbal duels with Virat Kohli in the past.

Following the failure of the Pune pitch during the inaugural Test between India and Australia, the wicked at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru has been rated "very good" by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

However, local hero Mahendra Singh Dhoni will not be on the roster of the Indian team as he has already retired from the longest format of the game for over two years now.

Because of no balls, India have been denied two wickets in the series so far.

Cummins appears a certainty to replace Mitchell Starc.

"I'd always set myself little steps of getting back into the one-day side, and from that hopefully getting back in the Test side".

Isn't he as injury-prone as Pattinson, for instance? Pattinson, too, is back to full fitness and worked up serious pace in the Shield matches.

"While there might not be seam and swing, hopefully some reverse swing and hitting the deck hard has worked for those two (Starc and Hazlewood) so hopefully it's going to be a similar plan".

"I can't really tell what it's going to do", Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis said.

Is Lyon bowling the best he has in his career? He also has a lot of experience which he has been putting to good use.

In the 2014 edition of the IPL, Jadeja claimed eight wickets in four matches, highest numbers at the venue. It is pleasing to see Lyon attack Indian batsmen from over the wicket and O'Keefe attacking the stumps all the time without giving rival batsmen any width to work with.

Beakley said Starc would return to Australia for treatment and rehabilitation. "I am sure that is exactly the same with Virat as well", Hayden was quoted as saying in a Mumbai newspaper. It is now a two-match series.

Needing just 100 to win then, NSW got off to the worst possible start as they lost Daniel Hughes for a golden duck, before Maddinson was out after slogging his way to 18 off nine balls.

"For that reason, we have tried to focus on the member countries, or the venues that are producing these pitches for worldwide cricket, (make them) more accountable, so in the future we will be incentivising them by saying: "If you produce a good pitch, then go to the ICC website and you will see the result of the grade the match referee has given you and you will be rewarded in that way for producing good pitches". "It could have been some record you know...the home boy leading the country in Ranchi's first T20, ODI and Test", said Chanchal Bhattacharya, Dhoni's first senior coach.
