Difference in India’s approach makes it difficult to declare early

Difference in India’s approach makes it difficult to declare early

Warner also admitted that they are being wary of the ability of the Indian batsmen to chase down the target if given enough overs. Pointing out how Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay almost took the visitors home in the first Test of the series, at Adelaide, the southpaw acknowledged that their opponents are playing a positive brand of cricket of late.
"We saw in the Adelaide how well they fought and luckily we got breakthroughs or it would have been a different story. They would have been 1-0 up. We know what their batting line-up is like.
"We saw how Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane put a great partnership together in the first innings. That's there in the back of our minds. We know the positive brand of cricket they are playing now. When we have the opportunity then only we will try and take those ten wickets," said the left-handed opener.
The 28-year-old concluded by referring to pacer Ishant Sharma as the opposition’s best bowler at the moment. 
"I felt that Ishant Sharma is probably the best of their bowlers. With R Ashwin drying up one end, he was bowling in the right areas especially to the left-handers. He let the ball go across and with the older ball he managed to get reverse swing to go both ways. He bowled very well today and he has been a big part in the last three Tests."
