Can Virat Kohli and co conquer the world?

Melbourne

Langer suggested conditions will dictate the team but he isn't sure what to expect in Sydney. Virat Kohli & Co. had thrashed Australia by 137 runs to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series and retain the Border-Gavaskar series.

The batting doyen says he would open with Shaun Marsh and move captain Paine up to No.5, with Labuschagne and Mitchell Marsh to fill the spots at 6 and 7.

He has earned plenty of praise for his analysis segments through the three Tests staged thus far - India's series opening win at Adelaide, when Australia levelled at Perth then when Virat Kohli's men triumphed at Melbourne.

"Try being a selector at the moment", Langer said.

On the number of fast bowlers coming through for India in the recent past, the legendary all-rounder said it was fantastic and had not happened overnight but due to a lot of hard work.

"Most of our batters knocking on the door are averaging in the 30s (in the Sheffield Shield)".

HE knows firsthand the pressures that come with wearing the baggy green, so come the fourth Test between Australia and India, Trent Copeland will offer cricket fans some unique insights.

"We have high expectations, a rich history, and we had some serious players in the past (David Warner and Steve Smith)".




The top six's collapses of 3-29 and 3-13 in Australia's first innings at the MCG effectively ended their hopes of defeating India in the series.

The scandal rocked the sport and led to national coach Darren Lehmann resigning and an overhaul of senior executives at governing body Cricket Australia.

Langer wasn't as forthright but made it clear he would like to see more bounce on offer. "It's got nothing to do with proving that we have done something that hasn't been done in the past". "It's something everyone is looking at".

Aaron Finch wasn't at his best. Standing among one of the top players with scoring 76 runs in the first innings and a 42 in the second innings, he completely justified his inclusion in the team and will surely make his entry in the final Test match in Sydney. "It's a great challenge".

During the Test in Cape Town, Cameron Bancroft tried to alter the ball with sandpaper with Warner fingered as the instigator and then captain Smith admitting he turned a blind eye.

"We're interested to see what we're going to get in Sydney.it's been a bit inconsistent", Langer said.

"But I've had some pretty wonderful people around to be supportive and help along the way".

Bancroft is eligible to return now after his ban ran out last weekend and he began to resurrect his career with the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League.
