Melbourne: Well aware of the massive challenge that awaits them in the upcoming ODI series in India, Australian vice-captain Brad Haddin on Saturday said his team will have to guard against the fear of losing in the rubber that would decide the world number one.

"We have to adapt to the Indian conditions and make sure that we are not scared to lose. If we go with that attitude, we will be a very hard team to beat," Haddin said before boarding the flight to India today.

Australia, still smarting from the Ashes debacle earlier this year, are scheduled to play a Twenty20 match and seven ODIs in the series starting October 10 in Rajkot.
