MS Dhoni's return for India will likely mark a change in approach for the visitors, more pragmatic than the death or glory surge authored by Virat Kohli on Adelaide's entrancing final day. Nonetheless, Dhoni may have learned a thing or two from how Kohli attacked, and by doing so brought India closer to competing with Australia than at almost any stage of the 2011-12 tour. If Mohammed Shami, Varun Aaron and Ishant Sharma can find the right lengths on the sort of surface they are seldom fortunate enough to bowl on, India may have a chance.
1.Steven Smith will be Australia's 45th Test captain, and youngest since Kim Hughes in 1979
2.Shaun and Mitchell Marsh are the first Australian brothers to play together in a Test since Mark and Steve Waugh played their last together against Pakistan in the UAE in 2002
3.India have never won a Test at the Gabba, but had the better of a draw on their visit in 2003. The last time Australia lost at the Gabba was 26 years ago, against West Indies.
