Dont think kuldeep will get any assistance from aus pitches bcz he bowls slower with higher trajectory.

Need someone to keep one end tight for pacers and contribute with bat.

 

Just for the sake of taking an allrounder - hardik...wont be in starting XI ... Bcz vijay shanker bowling will be useless on flat roads and his batting may be good but certainly not like a specialist test batsman.

 

No need of bhuvi unfortunately.

 

Personally not convinced of either nair or vihari both seems to struggle against bounce which will in plenty in aus. But no other option as of now...may be mayank agarwal can be tried in middle order

Both Rahul and Pant look good on the backfoot and are fluent cutters and pullers. Both have handled bouncer barrage by Stokes with confidence.
 
And Rahul is very good at defending well directed bouncers, making the ball drop to a stop near his feet by playing with a soft bottom hand.
 
And both Rahul and Pant will get confidence from playing a big innings each ... out of Asia in the 5th test in England.
 
This bodes well for the Australian tour, where tracks maybe flat but bouncy.  And the kookabura ball does not move a lot.
 
 
 
 


Baal Hoga.
Kab thhe ye log jaab series win karne wale they?
Both of them (especially Rahul) will be the same old crabs against SENA teams when it matters the most and then will score daddy hundreds when everything is out of their hands.

I think rahane ls done folks. What makes you think he will find form that has eluded him for 2 years. He is like yuvraj in his last few matches . Need to move on from him n  shikhar.
