Team India unfazed by Australia's sledging threat for Test series

I definitely changed my approach to the subcontinent conditions as compared to four years ago. "We'd like to take this Test match and see how we go".

"Yes all those matches we have played and all those situations we had been in, top order and lower order contributions have been good, bowling not only spinners also the faster bowlers stood up in key moments that's what has stood us up in good stead".

"We're pumped", vice-captain David Warner said after Australia drew a weekend warm-up against India A. India lost the Test match under controversial circumstances with umpires Steve Bucknor and Mark Benson being publically criticised by Indian players and the media for their poor decisions in the match. He is a totally different to what I am. Looking to bowling with him.

"You try and take wickets in other ways". For us, coming over and competing here is about building pressure, either with quickies or spinners at the other end.

The first Test in the series for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy commences at Pune's Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on February 23 to be followed by the next three games at Bengaluru (March 4-8), Ranchi (March 16-20) and Dharamshala (March 25-29).
