Melbourne: Australia's players sense fragility in India's mental approach when playing matches away from home, and have discussed taking advantage of it during the Boxing Day Test.
Among the many topics covered in preparation for the first Test at the MCG was the disparity in Indian attitudes to matches at home and away. The opening batsman David Warner said Australia had discussed how the sense of invincibility India enjoyed on the subcontinent can slip away rapidly on the other side of the world.
"You look at their line-up and you can think 'oh how are we going to get these guys out'," Warner told ESPNcricinfo. "But we know when they're in Australia, the wickets are different, and we think their mental approach is a bit different to what it is when they're in India.
