Glenn Maxwell excited about challenging India tour

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell on Friday said Australia's forthcoming four-Test tour of India later this month, will be a real test for each player.

Maxwell, who has played for several Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises, and by his own admission is eyeing to cement the No.6 spot in the line-up, said the visitors need to improve their shot selection to tackle India's spin attack.


Sledging Kohli has adverse effect believes Hussey

Former Test star Michael Hussey has warned the India-bound Australian cricket team for a four-Test tour not to antagonise Virat Kohli, saying sledging the Indian captain may boomerang on the visitors.

Calling Kohli "a real competitor", the 41-year-old Hussey, who played 79 Tests before retiring in 2013, said engaging in a verbal spat with the Indian skipper will only fire him up which will benefit the hosts in the matches.


New Zealand pacer Wagner fractures finger

New Zealand pace bowler Neil Wagner is in doubt for the upcoming Test series against South Africa after fracturing his left ring finger. Wagner sustained the injury while fielding a ball off his own bowling during a Ford Trophy game for the Otago Volts on Wednesday.

BLACKCAPS coach Mike Hesson said time would tell in terms of Wagner’s return.


Bangladesh wary of India's spin twins

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim on Thursday admitted it will be a challenge to face spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja when they take on India in the one-off Test in Hyderabad.

Still reeling from their series whitewash across formats against New Zealand deep down under -- Bangladesh lost three ODIs and T20Is and two Tests, Rahim rated the spin duo as the best in the world right now, and added they will play out of their skins to put up a fight.
