After securing a 31-run win against Australia in the 1st Test, India will go into the second match with an aim to extend their lead. However, there will be a vast difference in the conditions as compared to the previous venue, as the lush green wicket in Perth will generate more bounce and pace. India will also like to exploit the conditions as the visitors have a potent pace attack, with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav being part of the 13-man Test squad.
Responding to a question on the bouncy track, skipper Virat Kohli during a press conference earlier in the day said that the team is excited rather being nervous going into the second game. India will not field the same XI as the team has been hit by a couple of injuries. Spinner R Ashwin and Rohit Sharma, who featured in the 1st Test at Adelaide, have been ruled out of the squad due to injuries.
