New Delhi: Feb 18, 2013

Australian opening batsman David Warner feels that with India under pressure with recent reverses, his side has the resources to beat Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men in the upcoming four-match Test series starting later this week.

Warner, who still remains doubtful for the first Test beginning in Chennai on February 22, said that a series win in India would be a massive achievement for Australia but conceded that the outcome would largely depend on how his side play against the home side spinners.

“Definitely, we have the resources to beat India. Dhoni is under pressure after recent results and we have the upper hand in pace bowling and our batsmen are among runs,” Warner said.

“It will be a massive thing if we beat India, leading to the Ashes series (after the India tour). But basically it would be decided by the challenge we are going to face against Indian spinners,” he said.

Like his team-mates Shane Watson and Ed Cowan had said, Warner felt the Australians should show the intent to be aggressive against the Indian spinners.

“I watched the England Test series in India. We have to put pressure on the Indian spinners, we have to make them unsettled. The plan is to show the aggressive intent,” Warner said.

“I have the experience of playing against some of the Indian spinners in India. I was able to play sweep shot and cut. You can’t think of just blocking them (spinners). You have be show aggressive intent,” he told Times Now.
