Bangalore, Oct 7 (UNI) Australian seamer Stuart Clark today said the team has not set any targets in the four-test series beginning from October 9 against India.

'' If you set a target you may have to concentrate only on that. We want to take it match by match and our only target is to pick up 20 wickets'', Clark told mediapersons after net practice at M Chinnaswamy Stadium where the first Test would be played from October 9 to 13.

He said ''we have really come here with a group mentality and we will target all the batsmen. We have to take 20 wickets and try and win the Test match.'' Clark said to be successfull in Indian conditions bowlers would have to be patient since the wickets may not suit fast bowlers.

Clark picked up two second innings wickets in the warm-up game against Board President's XI in Hyderabad. That match was dominated by the President's XI batsmen with three of them hitting centuries.

''You don't get a lot of love back from the wicket. You just have to be patient and bang it in there all day. It can be hardwork, but you got to put all that aside. I think Michael Kasprowich did it well.

He got in there and bowled all day and we all know stories about how he lost eight kilograms. ''But, I think that's the secret to it.

You just got to do it all day. And guys who have been successful here have done that. You cannot shirk the responsibility'', he said.
