Probably the best group of fast bowlers we ever had: Bharat Arun

That surface awaits the bowling attacks on both teams but given the Indian quartet's success at Adelaide Oval, after achieving similar feats on tours of South Africa and England this year, bowling coach Bharat Arun declared the current combination was the best in India's history.

Looking ahead at the imminent second Test, Arun believed that the Aussies will come hard at the Indians but he averred that "plans are in place" to counter all challenges. It's a great feeling from the Indian perspective that the fast bowlers are doing a great job.

We don't know who two among the pace trio got the seats given up by Mr. and Mrs. Kohli. The effort and consistency with which we are able to perform over a period of time, that's very encouraging.

Nathan Lyon (0-34 from 22 overs) and Cummins (0-40 from 17 overs) combined to give little away in an intense battle with Kohli and Pujara, the two batsmen having to wait more than 21 overs between boundaries before the latter eventually fell for 24 to a great catch from wicketkeeper Paine. "And that is what we are going to work on with the bowlers".

Cape Town - Kane Williamson has become the first New Zealand batsman and 32nd overall to break the 900-point barrier in the ICC player rankings for Test batsmen following a stellar performance in the third Test against Pakistan. Arun stressed the offspinner did everything that was asked of him.

Australia formally recognises West Jerusalem as Israel's capital
For decades the worldwide community maintained that the city's status should be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians. He added Australia also recognised the aspirations of the Palestinians to a state with a capital in East Jerusalem .

The bowling coach was also pleased with Ravichandran Ashwin's control in Adelaide and praised the Tamil Nadu tweaker, "I think spinners mature a lot with age". Ashwin has been really good and the last match he helped us to control - he gave us the control, bowling close to 90 overs for 147 runs and six wickets. "That's the job he was entrusted with and he did that exceptionally well", he pointed out.

A lot of the chatter ahead of the Perth Test has been revolving around the spicy nature of the track.

However, he said he would urge his bowlers to stick to the same recipe that brought success in Adelaide: consistency and sustained pressure. Justin Langer, the Australia coach, felt the additional pace and bounce gives them the advantage. "We haven't looked at the wicket".

Even in the latest match against Australia which the Indian team won by 31 runs, Indian bowlers picked up all the 20 wickets which are on offer in the Test match.

"Irrespective of what the conditions (are), we said we'd come here and look at it as our home conditions whatever conditions we get". Whatever is in the offing, we are happy with.
