Aaron Finch wants Australia to play aggressively against India

India vs Australia,Mitchell Johnson,Virat Kohli

India have never won a Test series Down Under but fancy their chances against an Australian team yet to recover from a ball-tampering scandal that led to bans for former captain Steve Smith, opener David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft.

Stressing on the significance of putting up a good performance in Australia ahead of the 2019 World Cup, Rohit said: "When you do well in Australia, you feel good as a team and thinking about the World Cup ahead, it can only give you confidence winning in places like Australia".

"We definitely believe we have the quality to win, but it will boil down to how we think in each moment in every game we play".

"One player we will miss is Hardik Pandya, who has an injury", he said.

"India have always played either at Perth or Brisbane", Rohit said. However, the Indian team management starting from coach Ravi Shastri to vice captain Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli are in no mood to take their feisty hosts lightly. The last time India played a T20 series in Australia, India blanked them 3-0, with Rohit hit two half-centuries to score 143 runs in the series. "There is a real good feeling in the group for all three formats".

Given the current form of both the teams and their respective players, the visitors will head into the Gabba pitch as favourites to win the gruelling encounter. India first toured in 1947 and since then, have drawn three and lost 11 of their series.

India have brought world-class spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav on the Australian tour along with seamers Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. So, we want everybody to step up and make it count. "It will be a challenge but we are ready to accept the challenge".

Australia squad for India T20s: Aaron Finch (Captain), Alex Carey, Ashton Agar, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, D Arcy Short, Ben McDermott. Shorter forms of the game haven't been their problem and Sharma has been in rampant form this year, already notching up two T20 centuries for his country. But even if they blast the Australians out of the postcode this week, everything will be digested in the context of how they are in the Test series, which swings into life on December 6.

"But the guys they have, especially in the limited-overs game, can do damage at any point in time".

"With our second line of pacers in New Zealand and Ranji Trophy on, we felt that we shouldn't pull out any bowler who are now playing competitive matches. But most of the guys have come to Australia before, they understand the conditions", Sharma said. It's a great place to play cricket, your performance is always appreciated.

"I have done well in limited overs here but the challenge obviously is red-ball cricket which right now I am not thinking of, just want to do well in T20 format and take it forward where we go". "In places like Brisbane and Perth, the good bounce allows me to play my game because I have grown up playing on cement pitches back home", he said.
