Posted by Admin On 10:58 AM

Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni reckons that the imminent four-Test series is his team`s best chance of upstaging Australia in their own backyard. India and Australia will square off from December 26 in a highly-anticipated series in which the visitors seem to have a good chance given the change struggle being endured by Michael Clarke's men.

On the day the Indian players head down Under, Australia was upstaged in a Test at home by New Zealand for the first time in 26 years.Even last time we had a very good chance and we did carry out well. It is not like that the resistance is not doing well (but) it will be the best chance for us,Dhoni told reporters in a pre-departure press conference here.

We have to play to the kind of talent that we have got and not worry about such things. We need to work on our strength and weaknesses. We are more worried about where we need to work on and not worry about what kind of opposition we are playing,the skipper stated.

India's two first- choice pacers -- Praveen Kumar and Varun Aaron -- were ruled out even before the tour ongoing but Dhoni insisted that led by the experienced Zaheer Khan, the bowling will click Down Under.

Our bowlers are talented. Of course, when you do not have your main bowlers you need a bit of time. Once the youngsters play more and more games that are how they get knowledgeable at the top level.

I think talent wise we are there. We have a good exposure for the youngsters who are part of the side now touring Australia,he said. Dhoni took a break from cricket by opting out of the just-concluded ODI series against the West Indies at home and he said he is back a invigorated man.

I needed the break and I am happy that I got it. The team also did really well. I am looking forward to the Australian tour,he said.We had enough time for some training also before the start of the first test match that we play. Looking good as of now. Hopefully we do not have too much injury before the start of the Test series,he added.

Asked which aspect of the game the Indian team needs to improve on, Dhoni said,You want to improve in all departments always. You have seen cricketers who have been part of international cricket for more than 10 years still believe in humanizing and they keep improving. It is a constant process and everyone is part of it.But he did hope that Indian fielders, certainly not the best on the circuit by their own entrance, would latch on to catches that come their way in Australia.
