Rohit Sharma and India eager to make an impression in Australia

It has always challenged us as a batting unit.

"Whenever we travel outside India there is always a special feeling and Australia is one place where we want to leave our mark and do well as a unit", Rohit said after India's practice session at The Gabba. "The last time we played Test series here _ although we lost two games and we drew one game _ I thought there were a few close games being played", he said. "I just try to keep it simple, try and go out there and enjoy my game", quipped Rohit. The team would love to replicate the results from their previous T20I assignment on their tour down under when they clean swept hosts for a 3-0 series win.

"Yes, it is challenging for all our batsmen when we come around here, but most of the guys have come to Australia before".

"[Rohit] is an unbelievable player, he's got a good record all round the world, so he's definitely a player to watch but we've also had success with the new ball as well", Coulter-Nile said at a press-conference in Brisbane.

"India have always played either at Perth (venue for second Test from December 14-18 this time) or Brisbane".

Proteas storm to victory in first T20 global
South Africa defeated Australia by 21 runs in the one-off T20I at the Carrara Oval in Queensland on Saturday (November 17). In a rain-truncated 10-over affair, South Africa rode Faf du Plessis's 27 off 15 balls to reach 108 for six.

"Of course, their bowling attack will challenge us whichever format we play", admitted Rohit.

India will be without the inspirational Dhoni in their tour-opening, three-match Twenty20 global series that starts in Brisbane on Wednesday after the veteran wicket keeper was rested by selectors. "We need a whole lot of guys to put their hands on different occasions and take up the challenge".

It's against that backdrop that India arrive in Brisbane for a T20 worldwide at the Gabba on Wednesday night, although they won't have to play any red-ball cricket there with the first Test in Adelaide, before the series moves to Perth, Melbourne and Sydney. India haven't yet been able to win a Test series in Australia, drawing 3 and losing 8 of their 11 campaigns, but with Australia a pale shadow of their strong self after the ball-tampering scandal that rocked the nation, it presents the Indians a rare opportunity to do well in the country. There is real good feeling in the group across all three formats.

Sharma knows that going from a relatively predictable Adelaide wicket to what is expected to be a bouncy, fast pitch in Perth could be the biggest challenge of the series. We are ready to accept that as a batting unit. "Different individuals will take places in different formats but the motive of the team is to try and cease all the moments".
