But the Indians have never won a Test series in Australia and if pace bowlers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins are firing the tourists could be in for another tough time.

Having that been said, an Australian newspaper has tried to "hit the raw nerve" of yet another visiting team with a headline that reads, "The Scaredy Bats" referring to the Indian team after their arrival in Adelaide ahead of the first Test of the highly anticipated series, starting December 6.

Team India was given a warm welcome by Bharat Army. The hosts have one of the most unsafe bowling attacks in the world.

Head's memories of Adelaide Tests past include sitting at the ground with his family to watch England bat for nearly two days in 2006, before being entranced by the way Ricky Ponting's team went on to conjure a win out of nowhere. Lyon watched footage of Ashwin prior to Australia's tour of India previous year, desperate to improve his form on the subcontinent. "Our bowlers know what they have to do. they know what line and lengths to bowl in Australia".

"The thing with Virat, he has every plan under the sun tried against him and he has countered all of them", Paine said.

"There's obviously been a lot of talk about that and it's been a big build up to this Test match but there's a great feeling around this group.now it's about going out there and hopefully putting it together as a batting unit. The only difference is we get the covers off earlier and we start earlier", Hough told The Weekend Australian. The third Test at the venue ended in the first session on day five.

"In India we have been doing really well but whenever we travel overseas there is always an extra motivation to do well". That dramatic final day came in the second Test after the redeveloped Adelaide Oval unveiled a drop-in pitch, and Head said the curator Damian Hough had evolved a surface which provided a little assistance for everyone.

"I have got some good overs under my belt the last couple of weeks for Western Australia".

Pacemen Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma, and chief spinner Ravichandran Ashwin got in some valuable practice, but were all expensive.

Discontent and disillusionment, stemming from players feeling let down by their own cricket board's refusal to back Andrew Symonds in "monkeygate", clouded the home side's bid for a record 17th consecutive Test win. Once you got in, it was Adelaide Oval.
