Moises Henriques hopeful Pat Cummins is ready for Test return in India

Kohli sends a decision upstairs Kohli sends a decision upstairs

This whole series, pitches have been as much a part of the story as the cricket played upon them. The cricket has been good, and this altercation - without sufficient evidence of provocation - only emboldens the game, both in spirit and TRPs. We are in Ranchi and we should look forward to tomorrow.

But Henriques said bowling in the subcontinent was a much more bruising task than on home soil, particularly in the aggressive environment created in the first two Tests. Honestly we do not look for any of those competitions. "Both teams have moved ahead from Bangalore and I think the focus should get back on to the series because the priority here is cricket", he reasoned.

Australian cricketers in action during a practice session before the third test match against India at the JSCA stadium, in Ranchi on Tuesday.

However Kohli don't believe pitch to be the sole reason for such low totals and dearth of big innings.

However, the two parties later called a truce after a meeting between the officials and chose to focus on the next game at Ranchi.

In the longer term, Australia needs to make exploration and development easier and get more suppliers into the market, he added. Senator Sinodinos said the Government would not rule out forcing some companies to quarantine gas for the domestic market.

Regarding the criticism he faces, Virat said: "It doesn't matter to me honestly". It is not in my control. I'm able to bowl cross-seam and stuff, so I can still try to spin it, but for variations and trying to get drift and drop and stuff - two go at the back of the ball - the way I bowl. I'm not going to hold a banner saying "don't speak ill about me". "Criticism or praise are totally detached from me". One side will say one thing, the other side will say another and that just takes the focus away from the game, that we all are sitting here because of. "But at the same time, it's very important not to be stupid and go on with the same thing on a daily basis". There was a decent break in between, and we certainly don't' want to sit and think about one issue all the time.

"For that reason, we have tried to focus on the member countries, or the venues that are producing these pitches for worldwide cricket, (make them) more accountable, so in the future we will be incentivising them by saying: "If you produce a good pitch, then go to the ICC website and you will see the result of the grade the match referee has given you and you will be rewarded in that way for producing good pitches".

The two captains are likely to discuss the various allegations before play on the first day of the third Test, says Cricinfo. "The minor changes can make massive differences in the game". Pitch curator SB Singh's words were twisted by the Australian media when he said "one of three prepared pitches will be chosen" for the Test. Kohli and the Indian team management were painted as the judges of the match pitch, when indeed, as per ICC norms, the match officials take the call when presented with such a choice.

Steven Smith has challenged Virat Kohli's suggestion that Australia broke DRS protocols repeatedly in the second Test in Bengaluru, describing some of Kohli's post-match statements as "disappointing" and "completely wrong".

Yet to make a Test debut, Mitchell Swepson has been called a surprise weapon by the great Steve Waugh and even as he gives them an option, it remains to be seen if Australia gamble on the leg-spinner.
