Second Test Preview - India v Australia - Cricket World TV

Like both teams, Chetan Narula has travelled from Pune to Bangalore to preview us the latest happenings ahead of the second Test between India and Australia.

Having entered the Pune Test with a 20-match unbeaten streak at home, India surrendered their record on a raging turner where they were outdone by a 12-wicket haul from Steve O'Keefe resulting in them being dismissed for 105 and 107 in the two innings.

Chetan believes the 333-run defeat in the first game of the series will hurt India's pride and they will be aware that another defeat in Bangalore will cost them the Border-Gavaskar Trophy which Australia won the last time these two teams met down under.

Despite being under pressure, Chetan is backing Indian skipper Virat Kohli to lead the team with more intent on a pitch which is having a tinge of grass on it.

With Australia retaining the same XI, Chetan believes the inclusion of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav in the place of Ishant Sharma and Jayant Yadav can add a bit more potent to the Indian attack.
