[The bounce] was a little lower than we're used to, but it didn't spin any faster than it stopped. As the night progressed, it seemed to get easier to bat on."

In the team, there are a lot of younger, fresher faces, individuals who have a lot to prove, and guys who want to stake a claim for a spot in the Indian team. We aren't expecting anything simple.
