Finch just 'needs a few breaks' to turn form around - Langer

Indian cricket team,Virat Kohli,IND vs AUS

The Australians will be desperate to put the heat on India (literally) again in this contest who need to win the final two matches in order to leave the country with 2 series wins.

Riding on the 39th century from the skipper, India also registered the second highest successful run-chase at the Adelaide Oval. In an interview with Star Sports, Virat feels given the size of Indian fan base across the globe, that would give Test cricket the status it deserves.

"For him to be able to play 360 (degrees) around the wicket in Test cricket and any white-ball cricket, his balance is unbelievable".

All-rounder Stoinis (29) was then promoted ahead of the swashbuckling Maxwell and the former responded in style with a flashy 36-ball 29 before getting a bottom edge while attempting to pull a short ball from Mohammed Shami. "You have to mentally think about these things and put yourself in such situations so that they come in actuality, you are ready to tackle them", said Kohli. He also acknowledged the advice given to him by India head coach Ravi Shastri previous year, during a conversation which he said changed his mindset about leading in Tests.

Stressing further on bringing emotions out and the feeling of playing for the country, Kohli said, "We want to be competing and winning at a global level, not just winning at home and not be competing every where because we certainly have the talent".

"It's incredible experience for our team to play against India".

"He's probably the best fielder in the world, we love it, his energy is contagious". "Maxi will be a very important part of our team if we're to win the World Cup".

Skipper Aaron Finch earlier struggled for runs before he was bowled by Kumar off an inside edge for six in the seventh over. And for that I'm always ready and willing to throw myself around and say to the boys "okay, this is what is expected out of everyone because this is what Team India needs, not me".

"I think the other night was a really big step forward and we can improve from that, definitely".

"He (Kohli) is a great competitor and his concentration is extraordinary and for someone to make so many runs as he has, it is incredible like all the great players", he said. "Once you create that pressure on a batsman, especially in limited-overs, he's going to do something extra and take more risk to rotate the strike or score runs...", he said.
