Either way, Paine acknowledged that arguably the key "chess match" of the series when Australia were in the field would involve India's efforts to attack Lyon in order to force him to bring his fast men back earlier than intended.

India will pick their side for the first test against Australia, which begins in Adelaide on Thursday, from the following 12 players, BCCI said on Wednesday.Team - Virat Kohli (captain), Murali Vijay, Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah.

After his break-out Ashes series last summer and strong start with 96 in the first innings against South Africa in March, Marsh has averaged exactly 10 in his past 11 Test innings.

"Just like the great Australian cricket team of 2001 felt and we just fell short (of winning in India) and we were able to (win in) 2004", Langer told Australian radio channel SEN's Whateley.

Paine said Marsh was likely to have an important role during the series by being required to bowl on less helpful surfaces.

Kohli's wicket was the icing on the cake for Australia, with Khawaja diving to his left in the gully to take a sensational one-handed catch, sending the Indian captain on his way for just three.

"I don't think any Australian side is vulnerable at home", Kohli said, suggesting the loss of several of its top players will not affect Australia.

"Whatever happened, regardless of all the things that have gone by, the skill level is still there".

Without Marsh's seamers, there will be added pressure on Lyon, the greatest finger-spinner the country has produced, to maintain his exemplary form, which would enable Paine to give his quicks longer breaks between spells. Langer called the newest Test member by the time Australia were playing Pakistan in UAE.

"The wicket over relays few years here has given enough over the game, we've got a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if he needs to", Paine said.

"Travis Head bowls some handy off spinners so we have options there but we'll be backing our bowlers", he said.

"And probably the fact that all our three quicks go in real fresh".
