Canberra: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni reckons the experience of playing in Australian conditions in the past will benefit the team in the upcoming four-match Test series, starting on Boxing day.
"Most of the batsmen have played there before. We are hoping we will do well there. Even last time (in the 2007-08 series) we had a very good chance and we did really perform well," Dhoni said.
Dhoni was however not ready to believe that the current Australian team can be easily tamed just because of the retirements of some big names, and added that India needed to play to their potential to win the series.
