Reaching Adelaide Oval, he got his Whites for the Australia Test team and has began training with the side since then.

Australia vice-captain and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has been dropped for the first Test against India at the Adelaide Oval, which starts on Thursday.

Marsh's place in the side for the series-opener, which starts on Thursday, has been taken by middle order batsman Peter Handscomb, recalled for the first time since the tour of South Africa in March and April.

Gaining the respect of his country is as big a priority as taming India for Australian skipper Tim Paine, who Wednesday said that winning matches and winning hearts are not mutually exclusive tasks for him.

Khashoggi, a USA resident who wrote for the Washington Post, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. The Kentucky lawmaker was excluded from a group on Tuesday that met with CIA Director Gina Haspel.

Captain Tim Paine said Marsh's omission was due to a lack of consistency and he would benefit from returning to Sheffield Shield cricket to find form again. "As a captain, it will be an opportunity to leave a legacy and be the first Indian team to beat Australia in Australia".

"Going forward we've got full faith in him being a Test all-rounder and as this series wears on and we get to places where the wicket might be a bit flatter and conditions might be a little warmer and our bowlers a bit exhausted then the all-rounder position becomes important".

"The quicks are going to have to bowl a bit more and we have full faith that Nathan Lyon can do the job in any conditions", he said. Most likely at some stage this series we'll need him.

We've obviously got a lot of confidence in Nathan Lyon bowling a lot of overs if we need to.
