‘It’s a good thing to have a win and not play anywhere near our best,’ said Paine. ‘I’m absolutely rapt with how we bowled, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do with our batting.’
Tim Paine insisted his Australia side can get even better after thrashing India in first Test
Paceman Pat Cummins starred with the ball, taking four wickets, including Virat Kohli’s
Pat Cummins, who took four for 21 — including the key wickets of Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara — in the destruction of India is hoping for another helpful wicket when the teams meet again in the second Test in Melbourne on Boxing Day.
‘I thought the Ashes Test (in 2017) and the India Test at the MCG a couple of years ago were boring wickets as a bowler,’ said Cummins.
‘Last year against New Zealand it was a really good wicket. It had a bit of sideways movement and pace and bounce. Hopefully it will be the same.
‘As a player and a fan, they are the best wickets, when it is a good battle between bat and ball.’
