Mohali: Australian coach Mickey Arthur is not complaining that India has prepared rank turners, where some of his players stand "exposed" against spin, as he feels the host nation must prepare tracks that suit their strength.

Australia are trailing 0-2 in the four-match series after being outplayed in Chennai and Hyderabad.

"I would be disappointed if we come to India and India didn't prepare these (turning wickets) conditions. Sub-continent presents a lot of challenge for some of our players and they've found out how hard it is over here. Likewise, when India go to Australia… and that’s world cricket," he said.
