Sydney, Dec 13 (UNI) Aussie tearaway pacer Shaun Tait is itching to take on the famed Indian batting line-up on the fast and bouncy Australian tracks.

''They'll come off the flat tracks over there in India and be faced with some hard wickets in Australia,'' Tait said.

''It would be brilliant to face up against them. There's been a lot of talk about their difficulty playing the short ball and if I get a gig I'll definitely try and expose that,'' he was quoted as saying by The Australian.

Tait, whose short two-Test career has been peppered with injuries, returned recently to the Australian squad after a slow recovery from elbow surgery.

''It's 100 per cent at the moment. I haven't felt any pain for the last two weeks. Fingers crossed hopefully it stays the same,'' he said.

If selected to play against India, Tait would be making a return to the Test side after more than two years. He played his last Test against England at the Oval during the 2005 Ashes series.

The South Australian had a brilliant performance during the Twenty20 match against New Zealand on Tuesday, claiming two wickets with sheer pace in his first over.

He is expected to play in the first one-dayer against the Kiwis tomorrow at his homeground at the Adelaide Oval.
