The four-Test series between India and Australia will start on Thursday. Head said the Australian pace trio will act aggressive with their actions. Virat Kohli had promised that his team will not get into a verbal duel

Travis Head, who has played just two Tests for Australia so far, has revealed the plan of pace battery of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins ahead of the first match of the four-Test series against India, starting December 6 in Adelaide. According to Travis Head, the Australian pace trio will act aggressive with their actions without getting into a verbal exchange with the No.1-ranked Test team. The 24-year-old southpaw batsman said the hosts will show their aggression and passion in the field through their body language instead of getting into a conflict.

"Words are sometimes cheap, it's how they bowl, and their actions. If that mongrel means 'Starcy' bowling 150 [km/h] and 'Cummo' hitting a really hard length and same as 'Hoff' [Hazlewood], it's bowling aggressive, being aggressive, the way we play, the way we bat," Head said as quoted by The Sydney Morning Herald.

"You do that in your actions, the way you buzz around the field, the way you cut down runs, create pressure," he added.
