2nd Test: India, Australia may unleash four quicks on fast and bouncy Perth pitch


PERTH: India’s 31-run victory over Australia in the first Test in Adelaide on Monday has evoked a wide range of reactions Down Under, with many local fans claiming that the men in Baggy Green were simply not good enough and have no chance of stopping Virat Kohli and his team from winning their first ever Test series here.

Former players have been less harsh on the team and the players but there is an underlying sense of hopelessness in their comments that is hard to miss. Just about everyone here feels that the fate of the series will be decided on the fast, bouncy and untested pitch here at the new Optus Stadium, which will host the second Test from Friday.
