Warner expects pacer Cummins to rise to the challenge against India

India have seized upon Warner's woes, with top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara poking fun at the vice captain's struggles against Ashwin, who has dismissed him nine times in his career, the most by any bowler. That prompted Kohli to challenge Smith, resulting in an altercation between the duo.

The lefthander has cobbled together just 98 runs from four innings in the first two tests of the series in India and has fallen three times to spinner Ravichandran Ashwin - twice in last week's defeat at Bangalore, which levelled the series 1-1. But if the Smith incident surprised the Indians, Saker said it was equally jarring to the Australians.

Cummins has just completed his first Sheffield Shield match in six years and is poised to play in Australia's third Test against India, which starts on Thursday in Ranchi.

One reason could be that under the specified rule, there is no scope for any sort of action against a guilty player. "I would never do something like that on the cricket field".

In the post-match conference, Kohli had alleged that he had twice seen Australians look towards the dressing for a DRS call.

"I want to find out from the Australian team if they're using the DRS in that way, if they are then that is unacceptable", Clarke told India Today.

"Broady's (Stuart Broad) got me, (Dale) Steyn's got me, everyone's got you somewhere along the line", he said. Is this Australian side not too dependent on Smith and Warner? Very surprised to hear that, but it's their opinion.

Whether there are attractive parts of PPG to combine with "is not a topic for today", he said on a call with reporters. PPG Industries, Inc (PPG) manufactures and distributes a range of coatings, specialty materials and glass products.

But Smith's predecessor Michael Clarke seemed to back the Indian's claims. Anyway, I am happy that the game is going to move on. I'm losing respect for him. Luckily, the BCCI decided that discretion wasn't the better part of valour, and made a formal complaint against Peter Handscomb and Steve Smith. "Looking back, Smith will be embarrassed and must have learnt a lesson", Waugh added.

Kohli said it was not only time it had happened and he had already complained to the match officials about the issue during a match in which there were a number of verbal confrontations.

The Indian skipper, though, was backed to the hilt by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

"Mr. Virat Kohli is a mature and seasoned cricketer and his conduct on the field has been exemplary".

"If someone makes a mistake while batting, for me that's a brain fade".

There was no shortage of drama in the 2nd Test between the two sides in Bangalore as players from both sides were constantly at each others throats throughout the game and sledged each other when the oppurtunity arose.

Despite failing to fire a shot with the bat, no player wielded more influence on this match than the belligerent Kohli, who showed scant regard for the traditions of the game in his pursuit of victory.
