New Delhi, Oct 25 (UNI) With just three more days to go for the third Test here, Australian paceman Mitchell Johnson, who will be resuming training from tomorrow, feels that the Indians would be under pressure as they will be wanting to seal the four-Test series here.

Hoping that the visitors would make a come back in the series, the left-arm seamer said, ''I think we can put a lot of pressure on the Indians. I think they're going to be feeling it a little being 1-0 up. I think all the pressure's on them so most of the guys are confident. When you're losing there's disappointment but we'll get back on track.'' The Australians, after being thrashed by the hosts in the third Test at Mohali, have been going through a tough time but yet Johnson hopes for some positives for his team.

''I don't think we're too far away to be honest. There's a few good things, like Shane Watson batted very well and bowled well.

Peter Siddle was outstanding on debut, you've got plenty of guys who've done well,'' Johnson told mediapersons here today.

The Australian pacer, however, admitted that a 'big' effort would be required from the entire team to level the series in the third Test, beginning here on October 29.

''The next is for everyone to get out there and put a big effort in,'' Johnson said.

Meanwhile, Shaun Marsh, who has replaced injured opener Phil Jaques, is cooling his heels in Perth as he is yet to get his visa.
