I bet they certainly didn't plan on that, but they should've bowled us out." <p></p> <p></p>"We were never going to declare, (hoping to) get plenty of overs into their quicks and wear them out a bit." <p></p> <p></p>"Hopefully we've done (Australia) a favour and they can cash in Adelaide," he added. <p></p> <p></p>However, Indian opener Murali Vijay refused to pay any heed to such a viewpoint, stating that they were not affected by the scenario. He further added that the visitors were attempting to experiment on the pitch rather than looking to restrict their opponents. <p></p> <p></p>"That's why we're here," said Vijay. <p></p> <p></p>"We prepared our mindset to play four-day cricket." <p></p> <p></p>"Our bowlers had a good stint today and hopefully that helped them out and their practices." <p></p> <p></p>"We're looking forward to going to Adelaide and taking it from there," he added. <p></p> <p></p>The first Test between India and Australia is all set to take place on December 6 at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.
