David Warner's simple advice for Matt Renshaw on India Test tour

"And we accept that they're the No 1 Test team in the world and they're a great bunch of players and we know what to expect". "We are looking forward for this game and start fresh and put the pressure back on the Australians". He impressed one and all with his defensive technique, especially against the spinners, keeping both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja at bay for most part of the first and third session on the first day of the first Test match.

Prior to the first Test, given the manner in which Australia were annihilated in Sri Lanka, focus was on how the Indian spinners would have them dancing to their tune in these conditions, but in one fell swoop, the hunter has turned the hunted. "We know the leaders (that) India have as well so they're always going to come back hard", Warner added.

Australia also appear to finally be heeding the request of Lehmann and Smith, who have repeatedly demanded they adapt to conditions. A return of 10 and 2 from the first Test where India's combined total in two innings didn't match Australia's low first of 260 tells a tale of embarrassment. We let the game slip from our hands due to those dropped catches. "Hopefully, we can come in with a better frame of mind and start with a positive frame of mind from ball one".

"As cricketers, we need that thing, at times to play in such wickets to test your ability rather than playing every time on a flat track or a seaming wicket", he added.

Many believe India's ploy to roll out a turning track backfired on the hosts, who would do well not to ask for a similar pitch as they chase a series-levelling victory in the second test from Saturday. They're the little moments we are thinking about when we're out there. So for us to beat them on home soil was awesome and fantastic.

Warner said the week-long training in Dubai before arriving in India was the best thing that could have happened to the Australian team. "We were fortunate for that and the boys are prepared and have prepared well", he said.

"A lot of the guys had their plan A but before you got out there - you had to use plan C and D".

Local reports in India claim the BCCI's chief curator Daljit Singh could be sacked for the role he played in the saga. A top official said here Wednesday that the BCCI Committee of Administrators (COA) would look into the report very seriously. We- 're proud of where we've come but now we've got three more Tests to go.
