Kumble also felt that only one warm up match before the first Test would be enough to adjust to the conditions. ''In international cricket, now-a-days it is important for all players to adjust quickly and most of the players have played in Australia hence I do not think it would hamper us''.

He further said that the Kookaburra ball also would not give any problems to his bowlers as they have bowled before with the ball.

Speaking on the strengths of the team, he said, ''We have the experience in batting to put up huge scores and we also have the bowlers to put them under pressure and be able to take 20 wickets in a match.'' Replying to a query regarding what would be the approach of the Indian team especially after the ODI series in India in which a lot of sledgeing went on, Kumble said that they would only allow their cricket to do the talking.
