India vs Australia: Steve Smith wins toss against Virat Kohli in 1st Test
Australia won the toss and chose to bat first against India in the 1st Test in Pune for Border-Gabaskar Trophy. Smith says, they are prepared for the Test against the tough side of India. He said, It's very dry, won't bounce. I looks different to the T20 games I've played here. Our preparations have been great, about executing our skills under pressure. Two fast bowlers and an allrounder." Kohli said, we are bowling in the rights areas so, toss really doesnt matter, "I don't come to the toss expecting anything. These things you have to keep out of contention. Looking at it as a challenge. In place of Bhuvi, we have Jayant. Reverse swing will be a big factor. Three really good sessions of preparation." About the pitch Ravi Shastri aid, I've never seen a pitch like this in India. From what I can see, there is no gloss, no shine on the pitch. There is grass, a decent bit. But it looks abrasive, plenty of cracks. This will deteriorate rapidly as the game progresses.
