India and Australia will play the second Test of the series at Perth on Friday and going by the photos taken on Thursday, Perth could offer a fast and bouncy track.
Ahead of the big clash, India skipper Virat Kohli said that with a big pool of world-class fast-bowlers, the team gets excited rather than getting nervous.
"Look, we're no alien to pitches like these. We've played in the past many times on these kind of wickets. So, it's nothing new for us. We know what to expect on a pitch like this as I said on a lively wicket with grass on it and the surface being hard, you're as much in the game as the opposition and there is no favourite to being the Test match," the skipper said.
“We certainly get more excited than nervous looking at lively pitches. We understand that we have a bowling attack that can bowl out the opposition now. When you have four, five bowlers at the peak of their ability, it is always a great feeling to have that in the side,”
As the talks around the 22 yards grew, the official handle of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter and shared a photo of Perth stadium, asking fans what they felt about the pitch.
The grass was greener on both the sides.

Lethal for the batsmen, the pitch would be a delight for the pacers.
