We want to leave a mark in this country, says Rohit Sharma

Hardik Pandya

In Indian cricket, I don't think there is anyone else who has said no to me more than him (Shastri) honestly.

As India get ready to take on Australia in the upcoming T20 series, the spotlight will rightly be on captain Virat Kohli. Of course their [Australia's] bowling attack will challenge us whichever format we play, but as a batting unit we are prepared to face that challenge. With David Warner and Steve Smith missing, and a lot of off-field chaos having an impact on the results on the field, there's perhaps a very good chance for India to pull off a flawless away series. "Brisbane, if I may say so is probably the fastest pitch in Australia".

"I have always enjoyed coming here, it is a great place to play cricket, your performances are always appreciated and when you are not performing.you know that is appreciated too", said Rohit ahead of the first T20I that will be staged in Brisbane on Wednesday. It has always challenged us as a batting unit. "The last time we played Test series here _ although we lost two games and we drew one game _ I thought there were a few close games being played", he said. Left-arm pacer Behrendorff could be Australia's trump card as he had troubled the Indians with a sensational spell of four for 21 in a T20 played in Guwahati past year.

They also warned that overhyping the CSIS report could undermine those delicate talks at a crucial moment, five months after Mr. Vipin Narang of MIT tweeted: "Kim literally ordered ballistic missiles to be mass produced on New Year's day 2018".

"Australia in Australia will always be risky without a doubt". However, the motive of the team is to try and cease all the moments. "It is not going to be easy but we have quality in our group". There is real good feeling in the group across all three formats. "We need a whole lot of guys to put their hands on different occasions and take up the challenge". The last time we played in Brisbane and not Perth. The world no 1 Test batsman notched up 593 runs against England in the five-match series and followed that up with three back-to-back hundreds against the West Indies in the One-day worldwide series. It will do the world of good to their confidence ahead of a competitive Test series. "So I have done well in limited-overs but the challenge is red-ball cricket, which right now I am not thinking of".

Rohit has scored heavily in the limited-overs matches in Australia and his strong back foot play earned him a place in India's Test squad after being dropped following modest returns in South Africa earlier this year.
