Cricket: In­dia coach Ravi Shas­tri ac­knowl­edged his team lack Aus­tralia’s pink-ball ex­pe­ri­ence but is con­vinced their “fab­u­lous five” pace­men can bowl the tourists to a sec­ond suc­ces­sive test se­ries vic­tory Down Un­der. Aus­tralia have played seven day-night tests, the most by any coun­try, since 2015 and won each of them while In­dia were late to em­brace the in­no­va­tion and played their only pink-ball test against Bangladesh in Kolkata last year. “Bangladesh and Aus­tralia, it is like cheese and chalk,” said Shas­tri.
