Virat Kohli - We have come here fresh. We will use the learning from first test. It looks a good wicket and a good toss to win.
Steve Smith - We'll have to start well with the ball in the morning. Hopeully, we can do that and pick up a few early wickets. The first Test is always very important. It is nice to be 1-0 up. As I said in the presser, India will come back hard at us.
